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.
Linear Motion - Hand Brake for "MINUTE MAN" Self-Lubricating Bearing Pillow Block Assemblies!
E. Longmeadow, MA -- Linear Motion Control - NEW Hand Brake for Minuteman Self-Lubricating Pillow Block Assemblies allows you to lock a pillow block or carriage plate in position. This is a very secure Hand Brake that compresses the bearing without permanently deforming the bearing ID. Available on both open and closed pillow blocks.
Linear Motion Control - H2W Component Selection Calculator!
Santa Clarita, CA -- Linear Motion Calculator-- H2W understands that there can be confusion when it comes to trying to determine how much force and acceleration is necessary to achieve your desired motion profile. We have taken the guesswork out of making that determination and placed a number of calculators on our webpage for your use, as you determine which of our vast product offerings would be best suited for your application.
We understand that there are a number of options when it comes to motion profiles; therefore we have included calculators for basic triangular motion profiles, trapezoidal motion profiles, sinusoidal motion profiles, as well as other calculators to determine the amount of force required if your profile does not correspond to any single motion profile mentioned previously.
New Positioning Stage from Lintech features 7,780 lbs (3530 kg) Load Capacity!
Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada -Motion control linear Positioning Stage - Now available from Electromate are LinTech's totally enclosed 610 series low-cost positioning stage. This large load capacity totally enclosed positioning stage is available in stroke lengths from 6 to 60 in (150 to 1520 mm) and ships in ~2 weeks.
The Lintech 610 series screw driven linear enclosed slides are designed to maximize performance while minimizing physical size and cost. These linear positioning systems use a low friction, preloaded, recirculating linear ball bearing system, which ride on precision ground linear rail guides. The linear rails are mounted to an extruded aluminum base, which offers a rigid support over the entire travel of the table’s carriage.
XY Stage with Internal Motor and Controller from Steinmeyer!
BURLINGTON, MA - Motion Control - Steinmeyer, Inc. announced a new addition to its line of precision linear stage systems. The new model KT210-EDLM offers a sleek compact design with a height of only 50 mm and length and width of 210 mm. Travel is 100 x 100 mm and includes custom designed low profile direct drive ironless linear motors. A key feature of this stage is that all motors, cable carriers and controller are integrated inside the unit, making this ideal for space saving motion applications. Additionally, due to the integrated controller, all electronics including motor drives are packaged completely inside; communication is simple though a universal USB interface.
The Sterilizable EC-4Pole 30 from Maxon Motor, A Brushless DC Motor for Demanding Operating Room Applications!
Maxon's new brushless electric motor, the EC-4pole 30, delivers high torque (106 mNm) and is sterilizable, a perfect drive for hand-held surgical tools.
Fall River, MA -- Motion Control -- Swiss drive specialist maxon motor has developed a robust brushless DC motor for hand-held surgical tools: the EC-4pole 30. Featuring two pole pairs, this DC motor provides a nominal torque of 106 mNm and an output of 150 W. It has a hermetically sealed rotor, meaning that it can withstand over 1000 autoclave cycles.
Need to operate at overload? No problem!
The EC-4pole 30 is equipped with the special ironless maxon winding, which makes it highly efficient. Another key feature is that the torque and current behave linearly and the drive can be overloaded.
Ultra-reliable NEMA 23 Stepper-based Linear Actuators by Electrocraft Available from Servo2Go!
This Nema size-23 ultra-reliable, stepper-based linear actuator is made with ball-bearings and dynamically balanced rotors for high-speed operation!
Greenville, DE -- Motion Control - Based on modified hybrid stepping motors, our AxialPower Plus motors are capable of producing linear forces up to 800 pounds and resolutions up to 0.000125" per 1.8° step. The reliability and precision of our AxialPower Plus and L3 motors come from using only the highest quality parts. We use stainless steel to increase the durability of our actuating leadscrews. And our internal rotating nuts are made from a range of engineered polymers for low-friction, smooth operation.
MICROMO's MCST 3601 Motion Controller For Stepper Motors!
Clearwater, Florida - Motion Control -Stepper Motors Controller - Searching the multitude of available programmable motion controllers for one that is ideal for micro stepper motors with phase currents of sometimes less than 100 mA was once a real challenge. The new MCST 3601 series, developed from the cooperation between FAULHABER and Trinamic GmbH (the motion controller specialist for stepper motors), offers the solution. This controller is compact and flexible, and is suited to fit perfectly with the full range of FAULHABER micro stepper motors.
Dual Axis Linear Motion Stepper Motors from H2W Technologies!
Santa Clarita, CA -- H2W Technologies’ dual axis linear 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.
