Vaughan, Ontario, Canada –Motion Control – The LCR16 from SMAC Moving Coil Actuators provides precision Z-theta motion within one small actuator, which is ideal for a pick, orient and place applications.  A wide variety of LCR16 linear rotary actuators are available with either direct drive or gearbox equipped rotary units.>

The vacuum-built-in shaft through the rotary motor is available for some models to prevent dust build-up in the unit.  These z-theta actuators can easily be programmed to control force/torque, position and velocity in all axes at the same time with feedback capability.  SMAC’s unique, patented “Soft-Land” function enables the unit to gently land on a delicate component with a controlled force to avoid damage of both the component and the actuator.

The actuator is constructed with a direct drive brushless servo motor.  It’s designed with linear guide built-in lubrication to offer long life cycle.  Moreover, it provides absolute control over: force/torque, position, acceleration and velocity.

Features include:

  • Direct drive brushless servo motor
  • Combined linear and rotary motions in a single unit
  • Fully programmable in force/torque, position and velocity
  • SMAC’s Patented ‘Soft-Land’ Technology
  • Self-lubricated linear guide
  • Low shaft run-out, 30µm (Lower run-out optional)
  • Vacuum through shaft prevents dust accumulation
  • MTBF 100 million life cycle
  • JMobile runtime included. Requires JMobile V2.8 or higher
  • Supports Corvina Cloud secure connectivity with full network separation
  • OPC UA Server and Client
  • Optional CODESYS V3 runtime with choice of EtherCAT, PROFINET, Ethernet/IP and POWERLINK

Motion Control – Limit Lost Motion with Gam’s SPH Flange Planetary Gearbox!

motion control planetary gearboxes

Servo2Go-Logo

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.

The SPH series features helical gearing which brings a whole new level of power and precision to GAM’s already extensive portfolio of gear reducer technology. With special attention paid to every aspect during development, the SPH gracefully combines design and engineering, to deliver our best inline planetary gear reducer yet . For dynamic and demanding servo applications where performance is critical, the SPH is highly powerful and efficient, yet smooth and quiet.

Download the new SPH brochure to see how the SPH Flange stacks up to other flange gearboxes available on the market when it comes to lost motion.

The Engineering Edge – Application – ETX Pillow Blocks!

the engineering edge application

This was a troublesome application. This system is completely submerged in radioactive water at a nuclear power plant. So no Teflon, no seals, no lubrication – nothing that will degrade in a radioactive environment. The majority of components are stainless steel – except for our ceramic coated/supported shafting and our special, designed for this particular application/never made before, ETX self-lubricating linear blocks. As you see, there is a circular saw which cuts metal-mesh filters which need to be replaced every few months. A big solution for a pressing application.

motion control programmable controllers

Motion Control - Electromate-Logo

Galil’s DMC-4000 Series of Ethernet/RS232 Multi-Axis Motion Controllers set the standard for high performance and value

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Components — The DMC-40×0 motion controller is Galil’s highest performance, stand-alone motion controller. It belongs to Galil’s latest generation motion controller family, which accepts encoder inputs up to 22 MHz, provides servo update rates as high as 32 kHz, and processes commands as fast as 40 microseconds-10 times the speed of prior generation controllers. The DMC-40×0 is a full-featured motion controller packaged with optional multi-axis drives in a compact, metal enclosure. The unit operates stand-alone or interfaces to a PC with Ethernet 10/100Base-T or RS232. The controller includes optically isolated I/O, high-power outputs capable of driving brakes or relays, and analog inputs for interfacing to analog sensors. The DMC-40×0 controller and drive unit accepts power from a single 20-80 VDC source..

The DMC-40×0 is available in one through eight-axis formats, and each axis is user-configurable for stepper or servo motor operation. With a powerful RISC processor, the DMC-40×0 controllers provide such advanced features as PID compensation with velocity and acceleration feedforward, program memory with multitasking for simultaneously running eight applications programs, and uncommitted I/O for synchronizing motion with external events. Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, position tracking, jogging, linear and circular interpolation, contouring, electronic gearing and ecam. Like all Galil controllers, programming the DMC-40×0 is simplified with two-letter, intuitive commands and a full set of software tools such as GDK for servo tuning and analysis.

New VLM Servo Motors for value conscious applications!

motion control Kollmorgen Servo Motor

 

Servo2Go-Logo

 

 

Greenville, DE —-Motion Control Components – Kollmorgen has launched the VLM servo motor series to fill the gap between stepper and high-performance servo motors. The new VLM series synchronous servo motors offer OEMs, machine builders and end-users, an excellent price-performance proposition in the torque range of 0.5 to 4.5 Nm continuous and 16 Nm peak, with speeds of up to 6000 rpm. They also provide highly flexible configuration, proven quality and high reliability. Hence, they are a very useful solution for many applications where stepper or asynchronous motors are pushed to their limits but the expense and unused dynamics of high performance servo motors is not desirable.

The many standard design and configuration options built into the range allow engineers an optimal solution from the outset, to tailor their applications and machine requirements. Thus, installation time and cost is minimized and the price-performance ratio is further improved. The VLM series motors are available with standard frame sizes of 60 mm and 90-mm or NEMA 23 and 34 in each of the six most popular motor sizes and with a choice of twelve standard windings. The extensive possibilities for shaft and mounting facilitate seamless integration into virtually any system.

Feedback options include Digital Resolver (SFD), resolver, encoder and Hall sensors. VLM motors achieve continuous torque up to 4.5 Nm and peak torque to 16 Nm and can be used in power systems with 230 VAC. And of course, the new motors meet the ROHS Directives for CE and UL certification.

Motion Control – Linear Servo Controller Amplifier to Control Voice Coil Motors

Forestville, CA,   —  The SCA814 Linear Servo Controller was specifically designed to control single phase, non-commutated devices like voice coil motors.  like it’s field proven predecessor the SCA754 is a high performance single axis DC motor controller and amplifier system.  It is comprised of a highly integrated single PC board level product with a cohesive interface.  This card provides current amplification and analog servo control interfaces.  The single-phase characteristic of the current amplifier makes it particularly well suited for DC motors such as galvanometers and voice coils.  It was specifically developed for control of motor applications requiring both high temporal and spatial servo precision, such as machine vision, inspection, scientific imaging, medical imaging and other business applications.  This amplifier interfaces directly to many of the Equipment Solution motor/stage solutions.
Besides galvanometers the SCA814 is directly compatible with all the ESI linear voice coil stages and the optical scanners.  A bipolar linear or switching regulated power supply is required by the SCA814 amplifier.  Typically better performance can be achieved when using a linear power supply.  Equipment Solutions has several high-current supplies for this purpose including the SPS15 ±15V DC Switching Power Supply .
