Motion Control - High Speed, High Precision, Dual Axis Positioning Stage from H2W Technologies, Inc.
Santa Clarita, CA -- Motion Control - The high speed, high precision LSS-012-12-060-XY-01A-M dual axis, low profile linear stepper positioning stage generates a force of 6.0 lbs [26.7 N] with a total stroke length of 12.5 in. [318mm] for each axis. This compact, low profile dual axis stage measures 17.0 in. x 19.0 in. [432 mm x 483 mm] and is just 4.2 in. [108 mm] high. Featuring repeatability of ±0.0004. in [±10 microns] and accuracy of ±0.0007 in/ft [±58 micron/meter], this dual axis linear stage is ideal for: Assembly, testing, metrology, scanning, laser cutting, and plotting in industrial, laboratory, and medical applications.
Motion Control - High Precision Three-axis Gimbal Mount from OES!
Van Nuys, CA -- Motion Control - The high precision, AU300-XZ Motorized Three-axis Gimbal Mount from Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc. (OES) features full 360O rotation of each axis. The rigid black anodized aluminum alloy frame of the three-axis gimbal mount handles loads to 10kg (22.5 lbs) and has the clearance (300 mm x 300 mm, 11.8 in. x 11.8 in.) necessary for mounting lasers, cameras, optics, and instrumentation for pointing, scanning, tracking, positioning, and other applications.
Each axis features: Low backlash worm gear drives and precision "V" grove & cross roller bearings for very high resolution of 3.6 arc seconds, and repeatability and positional accuracy to 18 arc seconds. Travel speed of each axis is 10 O per second.
BURLINGTON, MA -- Motion Control - Steinmeyer's Series of compact linear axis stages for horizontal or vertical applications are equipped with a DC motor, and are easy to integrated into new and existing applications.
This series of robust linear axis stages is characterized by an optimum price-performance ratio together with precise operating parameters. For this reason, this series of stages is favored for a large variety of applications and is ideal for precise focusing of sensors or optics.
Introducing the DMC-52xx0 EtherCAT Master. Galil’s First 32 Axis Motion Controller!
Vaughan, Ontario, Canada -- Galil Motion Control introduces the DMC-52xx0 EtherCAT master, Galil’s first 32 axis motion controller. This new addition to Galil’s EtherCAT family is a pure EtherCAT controller with the ability to control up to 32 drives and 2 I/O modules. This space efficient package also provides uncommitted I/O for easy integration into any EtherCAT application.
The DMC-52xx0 is offered in 2, 4, 8, and 16 axis formats (32 axis coming soon). Coordinated moves can be done within banks of up to 8 axes allowing for minimal changes of Galil’s programming language. The DMC-52xx0 operates in Cyclic Synchronous Position mode (CSP). In this mode, the servo control loop is closed on the EtherCAT drive while the Galil controller sends motion profile commands at a rate of 1 kHz. Galil supports a host of EtherCAT devices for virtually any application. See the list below for more details.
Elephants, lions or entire herds of antelopes with a digital camera specially designed for documentaries, wild animals can be captured quickly. Motors made by maxon ensure that there are no chromatic aberrations in the recordings!
Fall River, MA -- 35 degrees Celsius in the shade; the sun is burning hot. Not a single cloud in the steel-blue sky: That is the grassland plains of Kenya, with its fascinating wildlife and impressive landscapes. Documentary film teams from across the world are on the trail of wild animals. A dangerous job; no one wants to get too close to lions, elephants and company. A jeep roars through the plains on the search for the animals of East Africa. In the noon sun, a lion appears on the horizon. It is lying in the grass, almost invisible and unfazed by the approaching jeep. The camera operator is ready. The ARRI AMIRA digital camera is ready to shoot. In a jiffy the king of the savanna has been captured as an image.

Linear Motion Control - White Paper, "What Is A Linear Motor?"
Santa Clarita, CA -- Motion Control White Paper - A linear motor should be thought of as a rotary electric motor that has been cut along a radial plane and unrolled. The resultant motor is a direct drive linear electric motor that can produce linear motion without the need of pneumatic, hydraulic cylinders, or translation of rotary to linear motion with the use of belts or screws. Rotary motors produce torque whereas linear motors produce linear force.
