Low-cost Tin-Can Stepper Motors from Nippon Pulse feature high torque and compact size!

Motion Control Low Cost Tin Can Steppers available from Servo2Go

Servo2Go-Logo

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.

PF/PFC series tin-can stepping motors are also available with optional gearheads offering increased torque in a small package. Nippon Pulse geared tin-can stepping motors can achieve up to a 2500mN·m maximum torque.

Geared motors from Nippon Pulse are well-suited for fluid dispensing, pumps, valves and a host of other applications that require high torque and smoother motion.

Motion Control – Ultra-Thin Large Aperture Direct Drive Rotary Tables (DDR) from Intellidrives!

Intellidrives Motion Control Component - Ultra Thin Rotary Table

Motion Control Components - Intellidrives-Logo

 

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.

Compact package and Superior design of the AccuRing rotary stages was optimized to minimize stage height. The low profile of the stage reduces total system working height. Angular contact bearings are used to maximize performance with respect to wobble, moment stiffness and friction. AccuRing stage has large clear center aperture that can be used for air or wire line feed-through or beam delivery.

AccuRing utilizes direct drive three phase planar brushless motor technology. There are no brushes to replace and no gear trains or belts to maintain. Coreless magnetic design assures smooth rotation and dynamic performance.

Accurate Positioning is assured with contact-less encoder. The motor and rotary encoders are directly coupled to eliminate coupling backlash. The low inertia and zero backlash make AccuRing the ideal solution for applications requiring frequent directional changes

Idear for: Semiconductor assembly, electronics assembly, precision machine tools, Robotic handlers, wafer processing, and automation.

Motion Control – Maxon BLDC Motor EC 19 and Planetary Gearhead GP 19!

High power up to 120 W, speeds up to 100,000 rpm, sterilizable 1000 times from Maxon Motors

Maxon motion control EC19 Motor and GP19 Gearhead

Maxon Logo

Fall River, MA — The new brushless drive with a diameter of 19 mm has been specially designed for high speeds and features low heat development and extremely quiet and low-vibration running. This little powerhouse has applications in centers for miniaturized processing, hand-held tools and medical technology. When combined with planetary gearheads, many possible variations are available for applications in these key markets.

 

With its modular construction, this new brushless DC motor is available in three performance classes: The cost-optimized EC 19 at 60 Watt, the strong and high-speed EC 19 at 120 Watt and the sterilizable high-end version EC 19 at 120 Watt. The internals of the drives are responsible for their individual characteristics:

  • The EC 19 at 60 W is equipped with a magnetic circuit that is designed for speeds of up to 80,000 rpm.
  • The maximum continuous torque is 12 mNm and the motor contains no Hall sensors.
  • The EC 19 at 120 W has been designed for speeds of up to 100,000 rpm and delivers a high continuous torque of 24 mNm. Versions with and without Hall sensors are available.
  • The EC 19 Sterilizable at 120 W may be sterilized in an autoclave 1000 times. With a maximum permissible speed of 100,000 rpm and 24 mNm continuous torque, this drive also withstands high temperatures and harsh steam cycles. This is achieved through careful selection of materials and through protection of the components such as in the hermetically sealed rotor magnet.

With maxon motor’s winding technology, it is possible to offer various voltage versions. The stator has been designed without slots. Therefore, no cogging torque occurs resulting in excellent control properties and extraordinarily smooth running. Together with an optimally balanced rotor, low-noise and low-vibration operation is easily achieved.

Maxon’s new sterilizable planetary gearhead, the GP 19 M is ideal for applications requiring very high speeds – input speeds of up to 40,000 rpm. To accommodate such high speeds, the toothing and materials have been especially designed to minimize friction. A key demand placed on the material is 1000 sterilization cycles. The gearhead contains a special shaft seal. Worth noting is the no-need to disassemble the drive unit for the sterilization process.

The new 19 mm drives are particularly suitable for surgical and dental devices, such as arthroscopic shavers and bone drills. There is also a focus on respirators and CAD/CAM spindle drives.

Comprehensive documentation and software are included with every delivery, and are also available for you to download from our website at www.maxonmotor.com.

Motion Control – New Profinet Interface for POSITAL’s Explosion-Proof Rotary Sensors

Posital Explosion Proof Rotary Sensors available from Electromate

Motion Control - Electromate-Logo

 

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada – Motion Control Components – POSITAL has added an optional Profinet communications interface to its range of explosion-proof IXARC rotary encoders. These devices have been designed to comply with ATEX/IECEx directives for Category 3 electrical products and are suitable for Zone 1 and Zone 21 conditions (potential exposure to hazardous levels of explosive gases and dust concentrations). Areas of application for these encoders include oil and gas facilities, underground mines, chemical plants, milling operations and grain-handling facilities.

POSITAL’s ATEX-certified encoders are built with aluminum or Type 316L stainless steel housings that are designed to contain any electrical hot spots or sparking and to provide environmental protection ratings of up to IP67. Based on POSITAL’s well-proven optical measurement technology, these encoders can deliver up to 16-bit resolution in single-turn configurations or 14-bit resolution for multi-turn models. This technology ensures that position measurement integrity is maintained even if movement occurs when system power is unavailable. No backup batteries are needed, reducing maintenance costs. IXARC encoders can be ordered with a wide range of mounting options to ensure that they can be readily adapted to many kinds of equipment.

ATEX and IECEx Norms

Posital Explosion Proof Rotary Sensors available from Electromate

ATEX and IECEx norms define essential requirements for equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Finding the right IXARC sensor for a particular application is straightforward. The web site https://www.electromate.com/posital-fraba.html provides a powerful product finder tool that enables a customer to specify the product features required for each application and then quickly zero in on the best available products.
