New! Motion Control Components & Technology Added 9-19-2014
NEW COMPONENTS AND TECHNOLOGY IN THE SPOTLIGHT!
"Gotcha Stick" from STI Features New Dimensions for Human Arm
Scientific Technologies, Inc. (STI), introduces the new "Gotcha Stick" Safe Distance Scale. This three-segment safe distance stick accurately tests the allowable barrier opening size based on the distance from the point of operation. It features English measurements on one side, and Metric measurements on the other.
510 Series DC and Brushless Servo Motor Drivers from MotiCont!
Van Nuys, CA - Motion Control - This series of drivers is a high performance, cost effective servo motor driver to implement intelligent motion control. The driver incorporates an advanced architecture and surface mount technology to achieve an exceptional power density. This series is designed to drive voice coil, brush-type and brushless DC motors at a high switching frequency.
Low Cost, High Speed Linear Roller Blocks and Rail Systems!
E. Longmeadow, MA LM76 is exculsive distributor of SAIBO Linear Motion Systems in the US. SB-LGA Roller Block and Rail Systems feature: Low noise, smooth travel, high speed to 120 ft/s, high acceleration to 150 ft/s, low weight, high accuracy, low friction, low cost, and easy installation into new and existing applications. SB-LGA systems are available in three sizes to meet load requirements up to 270 lbs and lengths to 157 in.
Santa Clarita, CA -- H2W Technologies introduces a multi-headed linear motor positioning stage which is ideal for applications that require independent control of multiple axis on a single plane. All motors share the same magnet track and encoder scale. Each moving table has an independent 1 micron resolution linear encoder head for position feedback. This allows for multi-axis motion control. It is assembled on a single piece of aluminum extrusion. Optionally, H2W can supply the system with fully integrated electronics to operate the stage under synchronized multi-axis closed loop motion control.
MICROMO Application - Piezo Motors Power MRI Robot!
Combining magnetic field immunity with high precision motion over inches of travel, piezo “leg” motors walk the line.
Clearwater, Florida - Motion Control Application - Surgeons treating brain cancer face a conundrum: They can capture ultra-high-resolution images of the tumor using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or they can use ultra-precise surgical tools to remove the tumor, but they can't do both at the same time. At least they couldn't previously. Today, Worcester Polytechnic Institute professor Greg Fischer, is busy developing a surgical robot designed for use inside an MRI machine. Guided by real-time feedback, the robot can position a high-energy, interstitial focused ultrasound probe exactly at the tumor, delivering optimal surgical results and an ideal outcome for the patient.
Small, Low Cost, Highly Reliable, "Pick & Hold" PWM Modules Available from OES!
Van Nuys, CA - Motion Control Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc. (OES) offers a very low cost solution for solenoid control electronics. In Pick & Hold applications a higher (Pick) force is required initially and then a switch is made to a lower continuous (Hold) force. This compact (3.00 in. x 3.00 in. x .85 in.) PH-ET "Pick & Hold" module is easy to integrate into new and existing applications. This module is based on a micro-controller that can easily be reprogrammed for your application. This very reliable module is ideal for driving: Solenoids, valves, relays, actuators, DC motors including voice coil and moving magnet linear motors, hydraulics, electromagnets, and LEDs.
