Van Nuys, CA -- New, patent-pending, SDLM-051 direct drive linear motors with built-in en-coder from MotiCont eliminate backlash and provide users with high acceleration, high speed, high resolution, and long life. Available in several off-the-shelf models, these direct drive lin-ear motors feature resolutions of 5.2 µm (0.000206 in.), 1.25 µm (0.000049 in), and sub mi-cron resolution. Compact, only 2 in. (50.8 mm) in diameter and 3.75 in (95.3 mm) long, and with the linear optical quadrature encoder inside directly connected to the shaft for the great-est possible accuracy, these motors can be easily integrated into new and existing applica-tions using threaded features on the front and rear faces of the motor, as well as each end of the shaft.

The new SDLM-051 direct drive motors have a 1 in. (25.4 mm) stroke with a continuous force of 5.0 lbs (22.2 N) and a peak force of 15.8 lbs (70.2 N). Non-commutated, motors have zero-cogging, and the light weigh of the shaft allows for high acceleration/deceleration for higher thru-put, and direct coupling to the load increases accuracy and resolution. All SDLM-051 linear motors are available with a spring to retract the shaft to a home position in the event of a sudden shutdown, and they can be quickly customized to meet specific needs.

Typical SDLM-051 direct drive motor applications include: Automated assembly, component insertion, fluid dispensing, pick-and-place, robotics, wafer handling, sorting, valve and flow control, labeling, tension control, and laser machining in the processing, manufacturing, medi-cal, inspection, metrology and other industries.
