Santa Clarita, CA —– Motion Control – When an application requires fast motion with a stroke over a couple of inches, a brushless linear motor stage will meet the needs of long travel and fast motion when coupled with a motion control system with servo amplifiers and a motion controller. Brushless linear motor stages can be coupled as a gantry for pick-and-place manufacturing or inspection equipment. The fast motion allows for high throughput when manufacturing or examining parts.

Santa Clarita, CA —– Motion Control Tutorial – Every motion control problem begins with a need to move a certain payload over a certain distance. However, there are many types of moves possible, and determining the right motion control solution may require some calculations to match the specifications found on a given motors data sheet. Most sales engineers will ask you for three basic questions when directing you to the proper motor or motion control solution. What is the stroke or displacement required What is the force or thrust required? At what duty cycle do you plan on operating the motor? Travel Distance The travel distance is the first piece of information needed to unlock any specification, because a solution to move a few microns would utilize different motion technology from an application requiring several meters of travel.

Motion Control – Dual Axis Linear Motion Stepper Motors!

H2W Technologies Dual Axis Air Bearing Stepper Stage

H2W Logo

Santa Clarita, CA — Automation Motion Control – Linear Motion — H2W Technologies’ dual axis linear motion stepper motors are ideal for open loop positioning applications requiring 2 axis of motion in a single plane. They can perform at speeds of up to 80 in/sec [2 m/sec] and strokes of up to 20 in x 30 in [0.5 m x 0.75 m]. Linear stepper motors are capable of very precise position, velocity, and acceleration control when coupled with a micro-stepping drive and indexer.

The moving assembly called the “forcer” is supported by magnetically preloaded air bearings that are imbedded in the active surface of the forcer. The bearings are designed to support the customer’s payload and to maintain the required 0.0005 in to 0.0010 in [12 to 25 micron] gap between the platen and the forcer.

The step and direction signal for each linear motion axis comes from two separate micro-stepping drives (2 or 4 phase). A 2 axis indexer is required to send step and direction signals to the drivers. For 2 phase motors, the full step is 0.010 in [250 microns] and for 4 phase motors the full step is 0.005 in [125 microns]. With micro-stepping, resolutions in the order of 0.5 to 1 micron are achievable.

The dual axis linear stepper motor is a complete 2 axis, single plane air bearing positioning system with the motor, the bearings, and the positioning system all built into one compact package. Integrating linear encoders with the stepper motor allows for a hybrid, closed loop positioning system.

Advantages:

  • Low profile and small cross section
  • High Speed
  • No servo tuning required
  • Multiple forcers on a single platen

Applications:

  • Pick and Place
  • Wire bonders
  • Parts transfer
  • Fiber optic

Linear Motion Control – Closed Loop Hybrid (2 Phase Brushless) Linear Motor Stage!

H2W Linear Motion Logo

 

Santa Clarita, CA —- – Linear Motion Positioning Stage — This revolutionary new series of single axis linear stepper stages, integrates a linear encoder into the single-axis linear stepper motor stage to operate the linear stepper motor as a 2 phase brushless linear motor, when coupled with state-of-the-art motion control electronics package provided by H2W. This allows H2W’s stage to achieve speeds and accelerations previously unachievable with a linear stepper motor. The stage includes cable carrier to yield high cycle counts, there are also provisions that allow customer cables to be routed within the cable carrier, custom mounting hole on the moving table are available upon request at no additional charge, 1-micron resolution linear encoder, the stepper motor forcer and platen, bearings and a switch for home position, and optional end-of-travel-limits are all integrated into a compact package, and cables are terminated in a standard 9-pin d-sub miniature connector. This linear motion package is low cost, and has a short lead time for custom lengths and/or options.
