Sunnyvale, CA — – The LFA-2010 Linear Focus Actuator from Equipment Solutions is a high performance compact motion control positioner, specifically developed for optical applications requiring both high precision and high speed positioning over a short to medium stroke. The LFA-2010 actuator has a 10 mm range of motion with <50 nanometer positioning repeatability, and a small step response of time of <3 milliseconds. This high force, low noise voice coil motor is typically configured with an analog position feedback sensor and can be optionally equipped with a 1um resolution digital quadrature feedback element.

An important feature of this product is it’s innovative tubular architecture. This allows the 20 mm clear optical path to go directly through the middle of the motor. The patented dual ‘Flexures system’ has zero stiction/friction.  For mounting optics a standard C-mount is provided, or an optional 12.7mm diameter lens socket. The C-mount provides options for adapters to common microscope objectives like DIN or M25 or M26. The LFA-2010 Linear Focus Actuator is well suited for optical focusing and other micropositioning applications such as scanning interferometry, surface structure analysis, disk drive testing, autofocus systems, confocal microscopy, biotechnology, and semiconductor test equipment.

The LFA-2010 Linear Focus Actuator can be supplied “Plug-and-Play,” with the SCA814 Servo Controlled Amplifier, a matching power supply, and necessary cabling for easy integration into new and existing applications.

LM76

E. Longmeadow, MA – – Motion Control – Linear Motion – Advanced Linear Block and Rail System – SLIDE RAIL2 is both novel and innovative. Unlike injection molded, plastic-lined block and rail systems, INJECT2 Technology’s unique properties ensure higher loads, 1/2 the coefficient of friction and increased toughness for shock, vibration and contamination. INJECT2 Technology’s low friction, self-lubricating sliding surface guarantees smooth, quiet and contamination proof operation.

SLIDE RAIL 2 begins with a machined aluminum carnage block and a ceramic coated aluminum extruded 20mm rail. The carriage and rail are mounted in a fixture and INJECT2 is injected between the block and rail. INJECT2 hardens and the rail and block are separated. No additional machining or bonding is required. INJECT2 penetrates the aluminum block forming a superior, tenacious bond which will not separate!

The benefits of INJECT2 Technology featured in SLIDE RAIL 2 are notable:

  • Self-Lubricating – Anti-Stick Slip
  • Up to 400 Surface Feet a Minute ‘Dependent on Loads
  • High Load/High Compression Strength 19,000 PSI
  • Low Friction .050 – .115
  • Quiet and Smooth Operation
  • Rapid Oscillation
  • Withstands Contaminates, Coolants and Wash-down Chemicals
  • Temperatures to 400F
  • Excellent for Shock & Vibration

Motion Control Laser Drills Exactly Defined Micro Holes – from Steinmeyer!

Steinmeyer Laser Drills Exactly Defined Geometry in Different Materials!

Steinmeyer  Logo

BURLINGTON, MA – Motion Control System -At the LASYS 2014 in Stuttgart Steinmeyer Mechatronik presented a wide product range of innovative positioning solutions for the extensive field of laser material processing and optical components. The international trade fair for laser material processing shows the entire user spectrum of lasers, covering a comprehensive range of laser applications across different industries and materials.

Steinmeyer’s laser drilling head SLH 75 specifically designed for industrial applications attracted particular interest among visitors. With the new innovative laser drill head SLH 750, Steinmeyer Mechatronik offers an industrial drill head which is able to drill micro holes with an exactly defined geometry in different materials. The principle of the drill head is based on an already proven optical design. Steinmeyer Mechatronik uses and advances this design with a new, innovative mechanical concept.

Since 1992, Feinmess Dresden has been part of the international Steinmeyer Group. The Steinmeyer Group comprises three competence centers: ball screws; positioning systems; and metrology. Now the Company Group strongly moves together pooling its activities, its competences, its know-how and its knowledge under the Steinmeyer brand. The synergies allow the Company Group new potential to design and develop various tailored solutions according to customers’ specifications. The change of the company name to Steinmeyer Mechatronik enables the Steinmeyer Group to strengthen its appearance and brand recognition in the market. With the new company name, the logo changes as well – the Feinmess Dresden logo has been replaced by the new Steinmeyer Mechatronik logo. The website address will be www.steinmeyer.com. August Steinmeyer GmbH & Co. KG (located in Albstadt) has been setting standards for high precision ball screws for over 40 years and prides itself on high quality, innovative designs to meet demanding customer requirements. Our Feinmess Dresden (FMD) division has been producing an extensive line of high precision positioning systems for well over 130 years.
