NEW COMPONENTS AND TECHNOLOGY IN THE SPOTLIGHT!
"Gotcha Stick" from STI Features New Dimensions for Human Arm
Is Your Work Place Safe? ... STI introduces the new "Gotcha Stick" Safe Distance Scale. This three-segment safe distance stick accurately tests the allowable barrier opening size. It is based on the distance from the point of operation. It features English measurements on one side, and Metric measurements on the other.
Hollow Core Rotary Actuators Are Available from JVL!
Birkerød, Denmark and Morrow, OH (USA) - JVL has introduced six Hollow Core Rotary Actuators. These integrated rotary actuators are available in two table sizes, the HDCT-100 and the HDCT-130, and each with a choice of three motors. An optional sensor kit, and control modules such as: Profibus, Devicenet and Ethernet, and easy point-and-click programming allow for easy integration into new and existing applications. Each of the hollow core rotary actuators are available either with the MIS231 Integrated Stepper or with an Integrated Servo motor, the MAC140 or MAC400. The table diameter and hollow core of the HDCT-100 is 95 mm (3.74 in.) and 29 mm (1.14 in.) and the table diameter and hollow core of the HDCT-130 is 120 mm (4.72 in.) and 35 mm (1.38 in.). Mounted in any position these rotary actuators are ideal for: Manufacturing, inspection, positioning, research, tracking, medical, and numerous other applications.
Low Inertia, High Precision, Hollow Core Voice Coil Motors!
Van Nuys, CA - Motion Control - Low inertia hollow core voice coil or moving coil linear motors from Moticont feature high acceleration, precise positioning to less than one micron (0.00004 in.), high reliability, and low cost. The cleanroom friendly, non-commutated motors are available in 23 off-the-shelf standard sizes, Moticont hollow core voice coil linear motors have open apertures of 0.125 in. (3.2 mm) to 2.000 in. (50.8 mm). The linear motor's hollow core allows for optics, illumination, laser beams, or cables to pass through.
Integrated QuickStep NEMA23 Stepper Motors, A Wise Choice When Building an Automation/Motion Control System!
Birkerød, Danmark, and Morrow, OH -- MIS23 QuickStep stepper motors are a series of versatile, compact, economical integrated stepper motors from JVL. Integrated stepper motors in the MIS23 series have NEMA 23 flange dimensions of 57x57 mm and are available in three models with rated torques of: 1.1 Nm (MIS231), 1.6 Nm (MIS232), 2.5 Nm (MIS234) (1000 RPM @ 48VDC). To reduce cost and protect against electrical noise many of the control and communication functions have been integrated with the motor in a housing designed to provide IP42, IP55 or IP65 protection, and eliminating the need for running control and communication cables. Different PCB’s (modules) can be mounted within the housing to create an automation/motion control system that is easy to incorporate into new and existing applications.
Harmonic Drive® gearing utilizes a unique operating principle which is based upon the elastic mechanics of metals. The greatest benefits are the zero-backlash characteristics and the weight and space savings compared to other gears because our gear mechanism consists of only three basic parts.
