MotiCont-Logo

Van Nuys, CA – Motion Control Components – Moticont has added another linear motor to its SDLM Series of high speed direct drive linear motors which are also know as Electric Cylinders. The SDLM-051-095-01-05 is a powerful, compact linear actuator measuring just 2.00 in. (50.8 mm) in diameter and 3.75 in. (95.3 mm) long. It has a 1.0 in. (25.4 mm) stroke and features a resolution of 5 microns (0.000197 in.). The integral, linear optical quadrature encoder is directly connect to the shaft for the greatest possible bandwidth and accuracy and is protected by the housing. This fully enclosed linear motor features a continuous force rating of 7.6 lbs (33.9 N) and a peak force of 24.1 lbs. (107.2 N) at 10% duty cycle. Applications Include: Vibration, noise cancelation, photonics, gimbals, antenna positioning, medical devices, semiconductor handling, SMT machines, assembly, wafer handling, optical focusing, dynamic vibration absorption, scanners and laser beam steering and.

The non-commutating SDLM-051-095-01-05 with 5 micron resolution Direct Drive Linear Motor has a quiet long life plain linear bearing, 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 actuators or electric cylinders are coupled directly to the load providing high acceleration and high speed with zero cogging and the zero backlashes that occurs in other drive systems such as ball screws, gear, and rack and pinion drives.

They make an excellent, low cost alternative to pneumatic and hydraulic actuators. The SDLM-025-095-01-05 Direct Drive Linear Actuator is also available with a complete plug-and-play matching motion controller.

Motion Control Application – Please smile with maxon motors!

Motion Control Application – Digital SLR cameras can deliver extremely sharp photos – regardless of whether the photographer is a professional or a hobbyist. Not only does the skill of the photographer, but also the technology inside the camera play a key role. maxon drive systems help to create lightning-fast images.

Maxon Logo

Fall River, MA — Motion Control Components Application – A maxon A-max 12 with precious metal brushes is installed in the central shutter of the S lens. The maxon A max program stands for high-quality DC motors with an optimal price/performance ratio.

With its Leica S system, camera manufacturer Leica offers a unique combination of performance features for digital photography. It combines the image quality of a medium-format camera with the handling, speed and flexibility of a small-format camera. The lenses used in the Leica S system have a built-in dedicated processor for controlling the auto focus. The lenses are also available with a central shutter for maximum flexibility when using a flash. Besides the focal-plane shutter, which is integrated in the camera, the central shutter is one of two common designs. The central shutter is typically located at a “central” position in the lens assembly, between the optical lens elements. It consists of several blades arranged around the optical axis in a concentric pattern. When the shutter release of the camera is pressed, the blades snap back from this axis synchronously and let the light fall on the sensor.

With SLR cameras, the central shutter first closes after the shutter release, because all the settings were made with an open shutter. The mirror swings up, then the central shutter opens for the duration of the exposure before closing again. Finally, the mirror swings back into the path of light, and the shutter opens. Even though it employs the classic solution of mechanical springs for the efficient storage of potential energy, the central shutter is a piece of cutting-edge technology. The tensioned-spring principle contributes significantly to the extremely compact dimensions.

Small motor for high tension

The springs are tensioned by a specially developed maxon motor with a high-precision overrunning clutch and release their stored energy to activate the shutter blades when the shutter release is depressed. A specially constructed solution prevents the blades from rebounding when the shutter is opened or closed. A microprocessor-controlled pawl and ratchet mechanism controls the shutter cycle via two electromagnetically activated plungers.

The gear motor of maxon motor is used for tensioning three springs that store the energy for the central shutter. A maxon A-max 12 motor is used as the base motor. The gearhead is an all-new development and is adapted to the available space. This presented a special challenge to the gear motor in the central shutter of the Leica lens. What was needed and developed was a very compact, enclosed and sealed custom version of the gearhead with perpendicular power transmission to toothed gear of the central shutter through a crown gear, for a life span of more than 100.000 releases.

Motion Control – XY Alignment Stage Featuring High Resolution and High Repeatability Is Available from OES!

 

OES Logo

 

 

 

Van Nuys, CA – — Motion Control – The AU200-50×50-SC Alignment Stage from Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc. (OES) is a high resolution, high repeatability XY stage for such applications as: alignment, assembly, laser drilling, machining, medical, industrial, semiconductor handling, testing, scanning, and optical applications. The linear travel of the X and Y axes is 50 mm x 50mm, and the resolution of each axis is 5 microns (non-micro-step) or 0.125 microns (with 20 micro-steps per step motor driver in use), repeatability is 1.5 microns, and positional accuracy is 5 microns. The 1 mm per-turn lead screws and preloaded V-groove and crossed roller bearings contribute to the high precision and stiffness of the AU200-50×50-SC Alignment Stage

The XY table measures 155 mm x 155 mm and features a precision pattern of drilled and threaded mounting holes to facilitate the addition tooling or fixtures.
