NEW MOTION CONTROL COMPONENTS AND TECHNOLOGY IN THE SPOTLIGHT!
"Gotcha Stick" from STI Features New Dimensions for Human Arm
Is Your Work Place Safe? ... STI introduces the new "Gotcha Stick" Safe Distance Scale. This three-segment safe distance stick accurately tests the allowable barrier opening size. It is based on the distance from the point of operation. It features English measurements on one side, and Metric measurements on the other.
Electric drives ... ... invisible helpers in our everyday lives!
driven magazine reveals where they are commonly used.
Precision drive systems can be found in the home, in vehicles, and at work, making our lives simpler and safer. The current issue of driven, the maxon motor magazine, provides interesting insights into the world of drive technology. It also goes in search of an old friend.
Fall River, MA -- Motion Control Components- Online Magazine - Most people have nothing to do with drive systems in their work. However, without being aware of it, they come across them everywhere: in cars, buses, elevators, and even within their own four walls. Drive systems are invisible to ordinary people, but they play an important role in our lives. driven, the maxon motor magazine, spends a day with a family and discovers some exciting uses for them.
Ultra-Thin Large Aperture Direct Drive Rotary Tables (DDR) from Intellidrives!
Philadelphia, PA, -- Motion Control Components and Systems - UltraThin ServoRing rotary tables provide superior angular positioning and are designed to eliminate backlash, friction and wear problems associated with worm, gear and belt drives. Low maintenance and high throughput characteristics of the AccuRing stage yields the lowest total cost of ownership.
AMC STAC6-Q-H Advanced Step Motor Drive for Hazardous Locations!
The Only Internationally Certified Hazardous Location Stepper Drive Available
Vaughan, Ontario, Canada -- Motion Control Components - The STAC6 offers best-in-class anti-resonance that ensures optimal performance of the step motor over the widest speed range. The drive is powered by single-phase 120 VAC which generates a nominal 160 volt DC internal bus voltage capable of driving the highest torque NEMA 34 and 42 frame step motors on the market.
Low-cost Spring Applied Brakes for Servo and Stepper Motors!
Greenville, DE -Motion Control Components - Inertia Dynamics type FSB brakes are designed to decelerate or hold inertial loads when the voltage is turned off. These brakes can be mounted to a bulkhead or motor.
The FSB brakes are rated up to 100 Lb-in static torque, and fit motors up to 5.3" OD.
Motion Control Tutorial - Linear Induction Motor: How it Works!
What is all the hype about the Hyperloop? How does it move? What is the technology that makes it possible?
Santa Clarita, CA -- Motion Control Tutorial - How Does a Linear Induction Motor Work? - Linear induction motor (LIM) theory is most easily understood as a rotary motor that has been cut and unrolled to generate linear motion, instead of rotary motion. It is comprised of two parts, the primary and secondary, which interact with one another only when power is applied. Either the primary or the secondary can be fixed while the other moves.
Super Accurate Magnetic Scales Equals Quality of Optical Scales!
Vaughan, Ontario, Canada -- Motion Control Conponents--BOGEN develops and produces high-precision variable magnetic scales and measuring systems to measure angle, distance, position.
As the available space for position measurement is always tight, BOGEN has introduced a more compact version of the magnetic measuring head IKS9. In addition to the existing design style with an 11 mm wide body, the measuring head IIKS9. is now available in 9 mm width to be used in the most confined spaces. Despite reducing the package size, the IKS9. benefits remain the same - the highest accuracy for magnetic measurements with freely selectable resolutions.
Linear-XY-Rotary Combination Stages from Intellidrives!
Philadelphia, PA, -- Motion Control Components and Systems - The Linear XY and Rotary Combination stages are compact, high-performance linear positioning and Rotary stages are perfect for the confines of the laboratory while providing the high reliability required in a production environment.
Very Stable, High Precision, High Load, Low Cost Motorized Vertical Lift Stage from OES!
Van Nuys, CA -- Motion Control Components - The AT20-100 Motorized Vertical Lift Stage from Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc. (OES) is a very stable, high precision, high load vertical lift stage that can be easily integrated into almost any application. The large 120 mm x 180 mm (4.72 in. x 7.08 in.) drilled and tapped platform has a vertical travel of 100 mm (3.93 in.) and features: 3.315 µ (non- Micro-Step) resolution, 5 µ repeatability, and 15 µ positional accuracy. The precision ground lead screw, precision linear bearings, and the rigid box construction of the moving component of the elevator stage assures smooth, flat (parallel to mounting surface) vertical motion.
Low-cost Tin-Can Stepper Motors from Nippon Pulse feature high torque and compact size!
Greenville, DE -Motion Control Components - The PF/PFC series tin-can stepping motors are conventional magnet-driven rotary stepper motors with a permanent magnet in their rotor core. Rotating in proportion to the number of pulses sent to the motor, the stepper motor is frequency synchronized and can change speed depending on the frequency of the pulse signal.
Because of its high torque output and low profile construction, applications for tin-can stepper motors include, but are not limited to, printing, packaging, and medical devices.
No Backlash, Zero Cogging, High Speed Direct Drive Linear Motors with Integrated Encoders Offers High Resolutions to 1.25 µm!
Van Nuys, CA - Motion Control Components - Moticont has added two linear motors to it's SDLM Series of high speed direct drive linear motors which are also know as Electric Cylinders. These compact drives with a 1.0 in. (25.4 mm) stroke are just 1.00 in. (25.4 mm) in diameter and 3.75 in. (95.3 mm) long. These direct drive linear motors feature resolutions of 5 µm (0.000197 in.) and 1.25 µm (0.000049 in.) The integral, linear optical quadrature encoder is directly connect to the shaft for the greatest possible accuracy. Each motor features a continuous force rating of 20.1oz. (5.82 N) and a peak force of 66.3 oz (18.4 N).
