The maximum speeds may be set by the user via the supplied, easy to use GUI.
Motion Control Application- Maxon Motors in the Formula Renault 3.5!
The Formula Renault racing series has become one of the most important racing series for future world-class Formula 1 drivers. Since 2012, a new, more powerful V8 engine has been roaring under the hood of the World Series racing cars. Inside it, maxon motors are responsible for adjusting the electronic throttle system.
Fall River, MA -- Motion Control Components Application - The World Series by Renault is a combination of several racing series. The main series is the Formula Renault 3.5. The prestigious Formula Renault 3.5 has become one of the most important racing series for future world-class Formula 1 drivers. In recent years, several drivers have succeeded in making the jump from the Formula Renault 3.5 to the Formula 1, such as Jean Eric Vergne and Daniel Ricciardo of the Scuderia Toro Rosso, as well as current world champion Sebastian Vettel from Germany.
Motion Control Four Axes Robots Available from Moticont!
Van Nuys, CA - Motion Control Components - Four-axis positioning systems are offered utilizing any of our two-axis systems like GXY-280-280-01 or GXY-280-280-02 along with our voice coil motor driven LMA series or lead screw driven LA Series linear and/or variety of rotary actuators. The Multi-Axis Positioning System is designed to allow direct coupling between the load and the drive motors. This feature eliminates backlash, allows for fast acceleration / deceleration, high speed operation while increasing the reliability.
New IP65 Integrated Stepper Motors Available from Servo2Go!
Greenville, DE -Motion Control Components - Applied Motion's SWM integrated steppers are IP65 rated drive+motor units, fusing step motor and drive components into a single splashproof and dustproof device. This space-saving design eliminates wiring and saves on cost over conventional motor and drive solutions.
The SWM24 integrated steppers combine high torque NEMA 24 step motors with a sophisticated, 6.0 A/phase (peak-of-sine) step motor drive. Power to the drive, located at the rear of the motor, must be supplied by an external DC supply.
XYZ Voice Coil Positioning Stage from H2W Technologies, Inc!
Santa Clarita, CA -- Motion Control Components - H2W Technologies designed the VCS20-20-03-MC-01-XYZ as a 3-axis positioning solution where compact size and cost were important. Using voice coil motors, instead of 3-phase brushless linear motors, significantly reduced the overall size, weight, and cost of the system.
The VCS20-20-03-MC-01-XYZ is a closed loop voice coil driven XYZ positioning stage. It is ideal for three axis positioning applications.
Ultra Flat Zero Backlash Gearheads from Harmonic Drive® Available from Electromate!
Vaughan, Ontario, Canada -- Motion Control Components -- New CSF-2UP Mini Gearheads from Harmonic Drive® are ideally suited for small robots or equipment that require an ultra-compact solution. These new models are lightweight and extremely flat.
Thanks to a cross roller bearing used at the output flange, the CSF-2UP gearheads offer high-moment stiffness.
Large Area Travel XYZ Gantry Systems from Intellidrives!
Philadelphia, PA, -- Motion Control Components - IntelLIDrives new Syncronized XY and XYZ BEMA Series Gantries are offered in travel length from 300 x 300 mm to 3,000 x 3,0000 mm. Constructed using a rigid, light weight frame, and linear guides, the precision, low cost BEMA Series features: Repeatability of ± 50µ, and accuracies of 10µ, With speed up to 2 m/sec, the BEMA Gantry Series is perfect for applications in high speed positioning for light-to-medium payloads.
BURLINGTON, MA --Motion Control Components - When manufacturers use CNC milling machines or machine tools to serially manufacture parts, they expect gage accuracy to be maintained for all manufactured parts and, at the same time, a reduction in the machine's total non-productive time. For the ball screw drive as a performing part in the power flow, this implies repetitive motion with high rapid traverse speeds and acceleration values. These high dynamic stresses cause unequal heating of the ball screw drive. Preloading increases this heating which seriously reduces the lifetime of the ball screw drive.
Limit Lost Motion with Gam’s SPH Flange Planetary Gearbox!
Greenville, DE -- Motion Control Components -- Backlash and Torsional Rigidity are both important values to consider when selecting a high precision gearbox as they both affect lost motion (arcmin). GAM’s SPH Flange Gearbox has a single piece steel housing and ring gear machined directly inside for maximum stiffness. The helical gears are precision cut and ground for extremely quiet and smooth torque transmission with a standard backlash rating of < 3 arcmin or < 1 arcmin reduced.
FDA/USDA/3A-Dairy Compliant ETX Scraper Seals for Linear Bearings Used In Food Processing Applications!
E. Longmeadow, MA Motion -- Control Components - Linear Motion - LM76 has introduced FDA/USDA/3-A Dairy compliant, snap-in ETX Scraper Seals for linear bearings. Machined from Ertalyte® PET-P, ETX Scraper Seals have high strength, excellent wear resistance, low coefficient of friction, and excellent dimensional stability at higher temperatures than seals from other materials. Designed with a slight interference fit between bearing ID and shaft, ETX Scraper Seals prevents contaminates and debris from migrating beneath the seal as it scrapes the shaft surface. Ertalyte® PET-P's low frictional characteristics have little impact on drive force.
