Motion Control – Introducing the World’s Most Compact 1500 Watt Integrated Servo Motor!

Motion Control –  1500 Watt Integrated Servo Motor!

motion control - integrated servo motor

JVL presents a new AC Servo Motor with built-in controller, Nano-PLC and direct AC mains supply with same capacity and length as traditional servo motors.

 


motion control - electromateVaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Products — JVL, the European leader in the development of integrated servo and stepper motor technology, has now again developed a new and unique product in the field of integrated motor control.

New Compact Motor

The MAC1500 motor sets completely new standards for the performance and size of servo controls. With a length of only 182mm for a 1500W motor with a torque of 4.78/14.3 Nm at 3000rpm, this MAC motor matches the size of traditional servo motors without built-in controllers with flange 130x130mm. This has only been possible through the use of extremely compact motors and the development of electronics and mechanics that utilise the latest technologies and manufacturing methods. So what about vibrations and temperature? As with the other integrated servo motors in the range (50-4500W), both the motor and all electronic components have been specifically selected to withstand the rigorous demands required by industrial use.

Motion Control Air Bearing Stages from H2W Technologies

Motion Control Air Bearing Stage
Motion Control Air Bearing Stage

The ABS positioning stage is a high precision, granite base, air bearing positioning stage for high end positioning applications. It is driven by an ironless core, non-cogging 3 phase brushless linear motor and guided by 5 flat magnetically preloaded air bearings floating on a granite base. The ironless core coil assembly is used as the drive mechanism for the AB stage because of its smooth, non-cogging operation. The lightweight of the coil and table assembly allows for high acceleration of light loads. The air bearings, which are used for supporting and guiding the payload, float on a cushion of air.

Motion Control Tutorial – Slotted vs. Slotless Motor Technology

Motion Control – Tutorial Motor Technology

Motion Control Tutorial – When first introduced, brushless DC motors, despite their many advantages, were cast as a costly alternative to brush-commutated motors and were typically only specified for low-power applications where long life was the primary desired requirement. Without the mechanical brush-commutator mechanism that would wear and eventually result in motor failure, brushless motors could be relied upon to deliver performance over time. As for other advantages, conventional wisdom held that brushless motors provide high speed and fast acceleration, generate less audible noise and electromagnetic interference, and require low maintenance. Brush-commutated motors, on the other hand, would afford smooth operation and greater economy. In the past decade, though, brushless motors have gained broader appeal and greater acceptance in industry for a wider range of applications previously dominated by brush-commutated products, due in part to dramatic reductions in the cost and size of electronic components and advances in motor design and manufacturing.

motion control Tutorial
motion control - tutorial

At the same time, manufacturers have further sought to challenge conventional wisdom by improving brushless motor design in an effort to combine the traditional advantages of brush-commutated and brushless types. A noteworthy example of how far these innovations have progressed involves the slotless (instead of slotted) construction of the brushless motor’s stationary member, or stator.
