Electromate offers Micro Z Plug-In Servo Drives from Advanced Motion Controls

Motion Control - Electromate-Logo

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control – µZ’s are the smallest off-the-shelf servo drives from ADVANCED Motion Controls. Pronounced ‘Micro-Z’ these plug-in drives are designed for embedded applications in a wide range of industries including: Robotics, Lab Automation, Homeland Security/Military, Electric Mobility, Medical and Packaging.

µZ servo drives are designed to drive brushless and brushed DC motors at a high switching frequency. To increase system reliability and to reduce cabling costs, the drives are designed for direct integration into your PCB. Weighing in at less than 9 grams, µZ Drives output 10A peak and 5A continuous and operate with a bus voltage range of 10-36VDC.

Designed without the need for a heatsink, the µZ’s are true featherweights with a high power to weight ratio. The µZ’s are fully protected against over-voltage, under-voltage, over-current, over-heating, and short-circuits. Depending on the model, the drives interface with digital controllers that have analog ±10V or PWM/Direction commands. These servo drives require only a single unregulated isolated DC power supply, and are fully RoHS (Reduction of Hazardous Substances) compliant.

Datasheets and Support:

AZB10A4 for ±10V Command Signals, Current Mode

AZBH10A4 for ±10V Command Signals, Hall Velocity Mode

AZBD10A4 for ±10V Command Signals, Duty Cycle Mode

AZBDC10A4 for PWM/Direction Command Signals

Stand-alone (drives with built-in interface)

Motion Control – No Backlash, Zero Cogging, High Speed Direct Drive Linear Motors with Integrated Encoders Offers High Resolutions to 1.25 µm!

MotiCont-Motion Control Direct Drive Linear Motor

MotiCont-Logo

Van Nuys, CA – Motion Control Components – Moticont has added two linear motors to it’s SDLM Series of high speed direct drive linear motors which are also know as Electric Cylinders. These compact drives with a 1.0 in. (25.4 mm) stroke are just 1.00 in. (25.4 mm) in diameter and 3.75 in. (95.3 mm) long. These direct drive linear motors feature resolutions of 5 µm (0.000197 in.) and 1.25 µm (0.000049 in.) The integral, linear optical quadrature encoder is directly connect to the shaft for the greatest possible accuracy. Each motor features a continuous force rating of 20.1oz. (5.82 N) and a peak force of 66.3 oz (18.4 N). Applications for these SDLM Direct Drive Linear Motors include: Inspection, antenna positioning, medical procedure tables, semiconductor handling, sampling, manufacturing and assembly, laser machining, scanning, adjustable office furniture, dampers, door & valve actuators, and agricultural equipment.

The non-commutating SDLM-025-095-01-05 (5 µm resolution) and the SDLM-025-095-01-01 (1.25 µm resolution) Direct Drive Linear Motors have quiet long life plain linear bearings, a non-rotating shaft, pre-drilled and tapped mounting holes, and threaded (internal) ends of the shaft for easy integration into new and existing applications. These low cost direct drive motors are coupled directly to the load providing high acceleration and speed with zero cogging and no backlash as with other drive systems such as ball screws, gear, and rack and pinion drives.

The SDLM-025-095-01-05 and SDLM-025-095-01-01 Direct Drive Linear Actuators are also available as a complete plug-and-play linear motion system with a matching motion controller

Motion Control – Cooled Ball Screws from Steinmeyer!

Motion Control Components - Steinmeyer Cooled Ball Screws

Steinmeyer Logo

 

Steinmeyer Ball Screws are specially manufactured for dynamic performance

BURLINGTON, MA –Motion Control Components – When manufacturers use CNC milling machines or machine tools to serially manufacture parts, they expect gage accuracy to be maintained for all manufactured parts and, at the same time, a reduction in the machine’s total non-productive time. For the ball screw drive as a performing part in the power flow, this implies repetitive motion with high rapid traverse speeds and acceleration values. These high dynamic stresses cause unequal heating of the ball screw drive. Preloading increases this heating which seriously reduces the lifetime of the ball screw drive. The transfer of heat to other machine tool parts can adversely affect the accuracy of the work piece. These inaccuracies accumulate during the course of production, with very undesirable impact.

Separate consideration of shaft cooling

Gage accuracy with simultaneous high dynamic performance can only be maintained if operating temperatures are kept constant. It is not always the best solution to cool just one component in the ball screw. The non-uniform temperature rise in the components is accompanied by expansion in diverse directions. The shaft and nut cooling, as well as the type of preloading are separately considered in the initial design phase to ensure the options are correctly combined with the load requirements during the second stage of the design. As a longstanding development partner of renowned machine manufacturers, Steinmeyer offers production-proven solutions.
