Motion Control Air Bearing Stages from H2W Technologies

H2W Logo

The ABS positioning stage is a high precision, granite base, air bearing positioning stage for high end positioning applications. . It is driven by an ironless core, non-cogging 3 phase brushless linear motor and guided by 5 flat magnetically preloaded air bearings floating on a granite base.

The ironless core coil assembly is used as the drive mechanism for the AB stage because of its smooth, non-cogging operation. The lightweight of the coil and table assembly allows for high acceleration of light loads.

The air bearings, which are used for supporting and guiding the payload, float on a cushion of air. This ensures that there are no wearing components in the system. The air bearings are not limited to acceleration limits like their mechanical counterparts where balls and rollers can slide instead of roll at high accelerations.

The stiff cross section of the granite base of the stage ensures a flat straight stable platform for the payload to ride on and does not require any special mounting considerations.

Bellows (folded way covers) with a 12:1 extension to compression ratio may be added to an ABS stage.

The power for the moving 3 phase coil assembly, encoder and limit switches is routed through shielded flat ribbon cable. Special consideration was made to separate the power and signal cables from each other to reduce the effects of noise on the system. The power cable for the coil assembly and a vacant cable for the customers payload power usage are installed on one side of the stage and the encoder signal, limit switch and an additional vacant signal cable for the customers payload signal usage is provided on the other side of the stage. Standard connectors are provided.

The ABS positioning stage incorporates the latest in linear motion technology:

  • Motors: Non-contact 3 Phase Brushless Linear Motor, Ironless Core, commutated either sinusoidally or trapezoidally with Hall Effects. The encapsulated coil assembly moves and the multi pole permanent magnet assembly is stationary. The lightweight coil assembly allows for higher acceleration of light payloads.
  • Bearings: Linear guidance is achieved by using magnetically preloaded, porous carbon or ceramic air bearings; 3 on the top surface and 2 on the side surface. The bearings are mounted on spherical surfaces. Clean, dry filtered air must be supplied to the moving table of the ABS stage.
  • Encoders: Non-contact glass or metal scale optical linear encoders with a reference mark for homing. Multiple reference marks are available and are spaced every 50 mm down the length of the scale. Typical encoder output is A and B square wave signals but sinusoidal output is available as an option
  • Limit Switches: End of travel limit switches are included at both ends of the stroke. The switches can be either active high (5V to 24V) or active low. The switches can be used to shut down the amplifier or to signal the controller that an error has occurred. The limit switches are typically an integral part of the encoder, but can be mounted separately if required.
  • Cable Carriers: Cable guidance is achieved by using flat, shielded ribbon cable. Two additional unused shielded flat ribbon cables are supplied for customer usage with the stage. The 2 power cables for the stage and customer payload are installed on one side of the stage and the 2 signal cables for encoder, limit switch and customer payload are installed separately on the of the stage.
  • Bellows: The ABS comes standard with neoprene / nylon bellows with Mylar stiffeners.
  • Hard Stops: Hard stops are incorporated into the ends of the stage to prevent over travel damage in the event of servo system failure.

               Advantages:

      • Excellent flatness and straightness specifications
      • Lowest velocity ripple
      • No wearing parts
      • Enclosed with bellows

      Applications:

      • Pick and Place
      • Vision Inspection
      • Parts transfer
      • Clean room
      Stages can be ordered for any stroke up to 80 inches and any continuous force up to 24 lbs. The stages are built as the orders are placed, they are not stocked, as each customer requirement is different.

The New Sales Funnel – Adapting to Change

Motion Control Marketing – Adapting to the New Marketing Paradigm

A message for Motion Control Marketers

The role marketing is expanding!

As a marketer of technical products I make an effort to view the sales process as a consumer.  Fact – All consumers are not alike.  Speaking only for myself, although, I believe there are many like me, that want to do their own research, and ONLY talk to sales when they are ready to.

Depending on the consumer it may be early or late in the sales process.  Perhaps the sales funnel should reflect an overlap rather than have a line at which the process switches from marketing to sales.  That said, consumers need to be aware of a product, have their interest aroused, have cause to consider the product, and have an interest in purchasing the product.  Marketing today necessarily has a bigger role in the sales process than in years past.

Years ago (pre-internet) a potential customer saw a product release or an ad in a magazine, circled a number on a “Bingo Card” and got a sales call made on him.  Today the potential customer sees a product release or ad and starts to do his own research.  In addition to some reviews, he will find data sheets, application notes, videos, dedicated web pages, and blogs online (products of the marketing department) all of which will be carefully reviewed before a sales person is ever called.

Developing and implementing an effective Business-to-Business marketing program for technical products that:

Creates Awareness of …

Generates Interest in …

Causes Consideration of …

Raises the level of Intent to …

and

Aids in the Evaluation of …

Does not have to be expensive! 

However, It does have to be well planned …       … and that plan has to be carried out.

For large companies the marketing program can include: Paid Advertising, Product Releases, an expensive interactive Website, a Blog, Data Sheets and Brochures.  All effective tools to create Awareness, Interest, Consideration, etc.

For smaller companies an effective reasonably priced, affordable marketing program can include: Product Releases, a Website, perhaps a Blog, and Data Sheets.

Product Releases are great for creating Awareness of, they also generate Interest in, and cause further Consideration of your products, each time the release is seen in a different print or online publication.

The Website does not have to have an expensively developed “WOW” factor as much as it has to have the information needed to determine if your product is right for the prospects application, or if you have the capability of supplying a custom product to meet or perhaps even exceed his or her needs.

A simple inexpensive blog, can also be an effective marketing tool.

Data Sheets …   … Create a straight forward format for an online data sheet that provides the technical data needed helps in the Evaluation that then can lead to the Sale!

 For over 30 years I have been marketing exclusively Motion Control products. First as a Marketing Manager and then as Marketing Consultant.  I have enjoyed working with several companies for over 20 years.  Email me at dwtechcom@gmail.com and see how inexpensive an effective marketing program can be.

Motion Control – Custom Linear Mechanisms

Custom Linear Mechanisms from Steinmeyer …

Welcome to Where Precision Is.  You Can Turn to Steinmeyer for Design and Assembly of Custom Linear Mechanisms for your Precision Positioning Systems

Our engineers can implement your finished design or optimize your concept.

For Example …

Highly Stiff Linear Axis for Optics

Construction of a flying telescope

The Max Planck Institute has built a helium-balloon borne telescope in the Sunrise project. This telescope hung from the balloon by means of a rope and ascended to heights of up to 24000m. The atmosphere is very thin at this altitude, and the conditions are similar to those in space. Such a balloon mission, however, costs only a fraction of a rocket launch with a conventional satellite, and represents an interesting alternative to space travel. Since the telescope hangs only on a rope, it bends due to gravity. Spherical mirrors were used, so that the bend of the optics could be compensated by simply shifting the optical components. The correction movements were achieved by the positioning systems shown here.

System with short strokes and excenter drive

The so-called M3 mechanism adjusts the tertiary mirror in the longitudinal direction and consists of a conventional carriage system and ball screw drive. For the M2 positioning system, which adjusts the secondary mirror in three translational degrees of freedom, a very short-stroke system based on an excenter drive was developed. Both positioning systems are driven by high-transmission miniature stepper motors with additional encoder feedback.

Rolling Motion Industries 2 Way Speed Reducer is 98 Percent Efficient

Motion Control - RMI Drives-Logo

Motion Control Speed Reducer

North Babylon, NY – Motion Control Components – Rolling Motion Industries (RMI) is changing the world of mechanical power transmission! New Two Way MAR-17-2-3:1 and the MAR-23-2-3:1 Speed Reducers using Traction Drive Technology leveraged engineering fluids and precision manufacturing with a simple design that features exceptional reliability and up 98% efficiency! The MAR17-2-3:1 Speed Reducer is designed for input speeds up to 3600 rpm with 10 to 20 in/lbs of torque, and the MAR-23-2-3:1 Speed Reducer is also rated for speeds to 3600 rpm but with an input of 20 to 30 in/lbs of torque.

The propriety engineered traction fluid with a coefficient of friction of just 0.1 to 0.12 transmits torque between the four driving and driven elements. The traction fluid continuously changes from liquid-to-solid-to-liquid in the microscopic spaces between the driving and driven elements. Even though there is no metal-to-metal contact there is no slippage! These compact speed reducers are quiet, generating up to 72% less heat even after weeks of continuous operation, and offer thousands of hours of trouble free operation, as the traction fluid cools and lubricates the traction drive speed reducers.

Having low vibration, and no torque losses from 10 to 3000 rpm, these 3:1 2 way speed reducers let motors operate at peak efficiency while having a damping effect on a motor’s torque ripple. The speed reducers are available with an optional overriding clutch to protect the components as they can not be back driven. Incorporating standard NEMA mounting dimensions, they can be easily integrated into new and existing applications.

Creating 38% lower dB at 3000 rpm than conventional gearboxes these people friendly speed reducers are ideal for use in medical equipment such as mobile hospital equipment and dialysis machines as well as pumps, blowers, fans, turbo and super chargers, conveyers, HVAC systems, and other power transmission and motion applications.

About Rolling Motion Industries (RMI)-

About Rolling Motion Industries (RMI): In 1993 John Pawloski and his brother Ray took over the family business, Jewelers Machinist Co. They realized they needed to switch from outdated conventional thread grinders to CNC thread grinders. As a result, Jewelers Machinist Co is recognized as the source of some of the most complex thread grinding in the industry. The concept for the RMI traction drive came from John in 2007. Working in that high precision industry aided John in the development of the RMI Traction Drive.

In the years that followed, the design of the individual components and formula of the engineered traction fluid were finalized, testing was completed, a patent granted, and production begun. The RMI Traction Drive is one of the most efficient ways to transmit power from one point to another. Utilizing rolling motion, RMI is able to transfer power at various ratios with minimal energy loss. Tested against V-belt, direct drive, chain, and gearbox setups, RMI Traction Drives offer energy saving benefits through true efficiency rating percentages up to 98%. The high efficiency of the traction drive allows electric motors to run at their peak efficiency ranges.

There are many applications where it can be used from automotive to industrial to medical. The RMI traction drive can be used in the electric vehicle market and precision applications. Offering benefits such as low backlash and no back driving, it set a new standard for “high efficiency”.

Motion Control – Redundant Coil Voice Coil Motor Available from H2W Technologies, Inc!

Motion Control Redundant Voice Coil Motor from H2W Technologies!
motion control redundant voice coil motor

 

H2W Logo

Santa Clarita, CA —–

When three-phase AC power is applied to the primary, a travelling electromagnetic flux wave is induced and moves relative to the primary. The wave induces an electric current in the conductive reaction plate. The induced electric current interacts with the magnetic flux to produce a linear force. The speed of the motor can be varied by changing the input frequency using an adjustable frequency drive.

Each coil pair operates as its own voice coil.

Redundancy is a requirement on many flight systems in a special case when one coil faults, the other can be used to make the motor “fault-resistant”.

Other systems require simplified circuitry which would not allow the change of current polarity in order to change the direction, in these cases each coil can be used to drive the coil in a single direction. The challenge in manufacturing a redundant coil is ensuring the same performance no matter the coil, which requires precise manipulation of the magnetic circuit design, and the precise coil layout to ensure the identical operation and constants for each coil. This will allow the controls to seamlessly switch between the two coils.

There are two ways of accomplishing this coil redundancy. The most common way would be to generate multiple coils operating on individual magnetic circuits. This requires a longer coil and multiple magnetic circuits; however this is the most robust design and the least vulnerable to damage or interference from the redundant coil. The NCC08-18-025-2R2C is an example of the multiple coil design. An alternate method, which allows for the most compact solution, would be a multi-filar wind. This method only requires one magnetic circuit, which is why the length is shorter. In this case multiple coils are wound in the same winding space.
