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 With the new company name, the logo changes as well – the Feinmess Dresden logo has been replaced by the new Steinmeyer Mechatronik logo.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.

EPOS2 Positioning Controllers support additional Platforms.
Fall River, MA -Motion Control – The maxon motor EPOS2 motion controllers for DC brushed and brushless motors are enhanced by even more possible fields of applications. Deployment of computer-based drive motion control rather than traditionally used PLC systems are becoming more and more prevalent in practice. To stay ahead of this trend, maxon has updated the EPOS2 libraries to support CANopen interfaces from Kvaser and NI-XNET, in addition to our existing solutions (NI, IXXAT, Vector). In additon, new opportunities unfold for computer platforms with serial communication via USB or RS232 under Windows or Linux. The existing libraries for Intel/AMD (Windows 32/64-Bit, Linux 32-Bit) are further extended with a Linux 64-Bit version. Additional support of 32-Bit ARMv6/v7 solutions allows the broad scale use of trend platforms, such as Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone. True to the principle “Easy-to-use POsitioning System”, simple and fast incorporation into a wide range of solutions with extended, no cost, libraries is supported.
With today’s controller architectures a variety of motion control components from various suppliers are used. Therefore, easy integration into the superior master system plays a crucial role in the success. By means of extensively documented maxon libraries, integration of EPOS2 slave drive controllers takes no time and makes elaborate interface programming obsolete. Customers can fully focus on their main task; the development of their application. A wide range of supported systems permit a selection of the ideally suited master.

Presenter: Shane Beilke, Advanced Motion Controls: Executive Team – Product Strategy
With automation expanding out of the factory, machine builders are faced with a varying set of new challenges. Mobile platforms, such as unmanned systems, are expected to operate in extreme environments and carry their own power source; all while being light weight and compact.
To meet the current and future needs of the market, enabling technologies need to be applied and discovered. At the forefront of the enabling technologies are servo drive controllers.
Servo controllers not only make a robot or mobile platform move, they can also be solutions to the other design requirements. A servo is an integral component to any mobile solution and can help with power efficiency, communication, agility and dexterity. This webinar will touch on the challenges presented to robot designers and how servo drives can make them successful.
