Application Story - FDA/Washdown System Excels with Special Linear Shaft Assembly from LM76!

Linear Motion - Application Story - Dairy

E. Longmeadow, MA – -- Motion Control - Application Story - Dairy machinery manufacturers are under intense scrutiny by FDA inspectors when it comes to FDA material and caustic washdown compliance. Recently, LM76 was called by a large US dairy packaging company to review a problematic portion of their filling line. After each shift, the filling line is washed-down, has a caustic foaming agent applied to kill bacteria and then is final rinsed. The caustic foaming agent was destroying - literally eating - the aluminum shaft supports while shafting exhibited pitting and showed signs of minor corrosion. Additionally, there were areas where product got trapped and these locations were havens for bacterial growth. Because this system was inplace and our customer was the end-user, LM76 engineers had to use direct drop-in replacement components. What to do?

Van Nuys, CA - These motors, having a large axial hole throughout the entire coil and body structure are ideal for optical focusing, scanning and other precision positioning applications requiring an axial opening through the motor.

Linear DC Motors, Voice Coil Motors (VCM) or Voice Coil Actuators (VCA) are the simplest type of electric motors. These motors consist of two separate parts; the magnetic housing and the coil. Applying a voltage across the terminals of the motor causes the motor to move to one direction. Reversing the polarity of the applied voltage will move the motor to the opposite direction. The generated force is proportional to the current that flows through the motor coil. This force is almost constant in the specified stroke range of the motor.

Maxon Motion Control Encoder New From Maxon Is Revolutionary and Robust, MILE Encoder

Maxon Logo

Visit our Website
Additional Information

Fall River, MA --The general basis of inductive encoders is that the inductance of one or more coils changes in relation to the material used. For example, a semi-circular iron core representing the material measure could be directed to a coil which then changes its inductance. However, there are drawbacks to simple inductive encoders, such as the temperature dependence of the soft iron/ferrite. External magnetic fields can also change the permeability of the material used, well below saturation point.

This is why highly accurate inductive encoders are ironless. The contrast is generated with eddy currents. These encoders have long been featured in large motors, but have not been produced for micromotors until now. maxon motor has invested heavily in the development of these greatly miniaturised inductive encoders.

Van Nuys, CA - Linear DC Motors, Voice Coil Motors (VCM) or Voice Coil Actuators (VCA) are the simplest type of electric motors for motion control applications. These motors consist of two separate parts; the magnetic housing and the coil.

Applying a voltage across the terminals of the motor causes the motor to move to one direction. Reversing the polarity of the applied voltage will move the motor to the opposite direction. The generated force is proportional to the current that flows through the motor coil. This force is almost constant in the specified stroke range of the motor.

Manufacturing of highly efficient photovoltaic systems is marching on. A Korean development sets a new benchmark not only in respect to the efficiency of the solar cell itself, but also “condenses” the sunlight and multiply concentrates it. The result is an outstandingly power dense system designed to most advantageously harvest energy from a so far still sparsely used natural resource. Maxon supplies the motion control drives for continuous tracking of the actual solar position.

Usually, today used photovoltaic modules are limited to the photoelectric conversion of sunlight into electrical energy. Korean scientists now found a way to not only considerably improve the solar cells’ efficiency, but also to focus the incident sunlight and to significantly boost overall efficiency.
