Motion Control – High Speed Positioning Stage

motion control - positioning stage

Santa Clarita, CA —– Motion Control – The SRS-006-06-050-01-EX single rail positioning stage is ideal for high-speed closed loop positioning applications that require both short and long travel distances. It uses a brushless linear motor to generate a continuous/peak force of 50 lbs [220 N]/150 lbs [660 N] with a total stroke length of 5.75 in [146 mm]. The non-contact 1 micron resolution encoder allows for precise position control. It is guided by a pair of recirculating ball linear bearings on a precision linear bearing rail.

The entire stage is assembled on a single piece of aluminum extrusion, thus reducing the overall weight of the system. There are also provisions that allow customer cables to be routed within the cable carrier. It has end-of-travel rubber bumper stops. A home positioning sensor, end-of-travel-sensors, and custom mounting holes on the moving table are available upon request.

Linear Motion Application – How Do You Move Articles of Antiquity?

Very Carefully With A High Load Rail System from LM76!

motion control - linear guides

E. Longmeadow, MA – — The Boston Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) has to move articles of antiquity from one location to another. In this instance, they are moving a 5000 year old relief (hieroglyphics) weighing 8000 pounds to a new location in the Museum. Here is a frontal photo of the Relief from The Tomb of Senenuka.

Part of wall from tomb of Senenuka; nine stones fitting together and including two niches; lower left piece smooth limestone; upper far left preliminary black ink sketch; right of this sketch is a complete relief showing two seated figures; central piece has large scene of seated male on the left and other smaller male figure to the right; upper far right male figure relief outline; left of this again a scene of two seated figures at a table.

Senenuka Time of Khufu or Khafre (Maybe Dyn 5?) Overseer of the Pyramid-town of Khufu, Director of King’s wad-priests, Boundary official of a settlement, etc.

The MFA contracted CBI Consulting of Boston to design the frame and fixturing. Craig Barnes, an award winning architectural engineer called Mike Quinn of LM76 to review the linear motion application. Over the course of several weeks, LM76 and design partner Todd Kanipe designed a telescoping, high load roller/linear motion rail system that won approval. According to CBI’s Keith Bouchard, the linear rail system moves very smoothly and so far meets the expectations of this program.”

Linear Motion Application – According to MFA Antiquity Specialist Jean Louis Lachevere, “All of these moves present very real dangers to the artifact being transported. In this case, we have a 8000 pound relief which already has its problems due to age and the fact that it is limestone ( limestone is very vulnerable to the atmosphere ).” Seen from the front, the relief is straight. From the back, much of the top back is gone. Thus, the back of the relief has to be plastered so the back is flat. Pins are inserted to further reinforce the relief and then it is tipped on its back. It is then moved to its new atmospherically controlled display case. LM76’s design is used in the transfer from the dolly to the mounting rails and restraints in the display case. This 36” motion is fraught with things that can go wrong. One of the considerations is the possibility of an earthquake…any problem conceivable is taken into account.

Motion Control – Use FDA Compliant Off-the-Shelf Linear Motion Components!

Motion Control – FDA Compliant Components

To: OEMs “Tooling Up” for Urgently Needed Medical Products! Use FDA Compliant Off-the-Shelf Linear Motion Components!

motion control FDA compliant components

 

LM76

E. Longmeadow, MA — Motion Control Components – Linear Motion – In dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic many companies have volunteered or been requested to produce urgently needed medical products such as: Masks, gowns, and ventilators. “Tooling Up” quickly to produce medical grade products for some companies can bring challenges. In addition to needing FDA compliant materials that will be used in the actual masks, gowns, and ventilators, the tooling used to manufacture these products may also need to meet FDA compliance standards. Depending on the product being manufactured, the tooling may need to be: Washed down using caustic chemicals, cleaned with high pressure steam, or sterilized with high Intensity Ultra Violet light or radiation.

Ordering custom FDA compliant linear motion slides and XYZ stages can result in long delays. As an alternative, many companies have linear motion slides in stock for immediate delivery, however, they may not be FDA compliant. In many cases it is the bearings that are not in compliance. LM76 manufactures several types of FDA compliant linear bearings and pillow blocks that are drop-in-replacements for existing bearings. FDA compliant bearings and pillow blocks from LM76 will not trap contaminating debris and can be thoroughly sanitized following Sanitation StandardOperating Procedures (SSOPs). SSOPs are detailed schedules and procedures specifying what to clean, how to clean, how often to clean, and the record keeping used for monitoring.

A helpful component selection guide from LM76, “Linear Bearings, 6 Simple Steps – FDA Compliance, Wash Down Compliance,” details the linear motion components available from LM76 that are FDA/UDSA/3A-Dairy compliant. Included are: Foodstream electroless nickel plated pillow blocks, PTFE lined stainless steel bearings, ceramic coated linear bearings, self-aligning corrosion resistant linear ball bearings, and Thomson® Super SmartTM corrosion resistant, self-aligning, high load linear ball bearings, and solid ETX pillow block/bearings. Shafting to compliment the type of bearing selected includes: Class L Stainless 303/304/316, 440C case hardened stainless, Rc 60 case hardened steel with an Armoloy coating and also Rc78 Class L for enhanced hardness and wear resistance. End blocks and shaft supports that have a ceramic or electroless nickel coating are also available, as well as new ETX Scraper Seals that prevents intrusion of contaminates adding another line of defense.

LM76 also designs and custom builds linear slides from Stainless Steel and other FDA wash down compliant materials.

H2W Technologies Six Axis Linear Motion Rotary Positioning Stage

Linear motion H2W Logo

Santa Clarita, CA —– Linear Motion Control – The SRS-080-10-020-01-3EXRTS is a six-axis positioning stage that consists of three rotary motors, with encoders, each mounted to three independently moving linear axis. It is ideal for applications that require independent multiple motions on a single travel plane.

Each linear axis uses a H2W brushless linear motor BLDM-D06 to generate a continuous/peak force of 24.8 lbs [110 N]/74.5 lbs [331 N] with each moving table capable of a total stroke length of 82 in [2083 mm]. Each linear axis has an independent non-contact 1.0-micron resolution encoder head reading a single encoder scale allowing for precise positioning using any multi-axis motion controller. Each moving table is guided by a rigid recirculating ball linear bearing block sharing a single linear bearing rail.

Each rotary axis consists of a standard 34-frame rotary stepper motor with a 40,000 counts/rev resolution encoder. Using a state-of-the-art motion control electronics package provided by H2W, each rotary stepper motor can operate as a 2-phase rotary brushless motor. Each motor can generate a continuous torque of 27.1 oz-in [3.06 N-m]. Each rotary axis is removable, which, in turn, reduces the moving weight of the linear axis to which it was mounted. This allows for larger payloads on each linear axis.

The entire stage is assembled on a single piece of aluminum extrusion, thus reducing the overall weight of the system. It has end-of-travel rubber bumper stops, a home positioning sensor, end-of-travel-sensors, and custom mounting holes are available upon request. There are also provisions that allow customer cables to be routed within the cable carriers.

Features:

  • Multiple linear motors on single magnet track Combined linear and rotary displacement
  • Rotary axis is capable of full 360-degree rotation
  • Ability to run closed loop rotary stepper motors

Linear Motion – How Do You Move Articles of Antiquity?

Linear Motion Application – How Do You Move Articles of Antiquity?

Very Carefully With A High Load Rail System from LM76!

Linear Motion - Moving Articles of Antiquity using LM76 Rail System

LM76 - Linear Motion

E. Longmeadow, MA – — The Boston Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) has to move articles of antiquity from one location to another. In this instance, they are moving a 5000 year old relief (hieroglyphics) weighing 8000 pounds to a new location in the Museum. Here is a frontal photo of the Relief from The Tomb of Senenuka.

Part of wall from tomb of Senenuka; nine stones fitting together and including two niches; lower left piece smooth limestone; upper far left preliminary black ink sketch; right of this sketch is a complete relief showing two seated figures; central piece has large scene of seated male on the left and other smaller male figure to the right; upper far right male figure relief outline; left of this again a scene of two seated figures at a table.

Senenuka Time of Khufu or Khafre (Maybe Dyn 5?) Overseer of the Pyramid-town of Khufu, Director of King’s wad-priests, Boundary official of a settlement, etc.

The MFA contracted CBI Consulting of Boston to design the frame and fixturing. Craig Barnes, an award winning architectural engineer called Mike Quinn of LM76 to review the linear motion application. Over the course of several weeks, LM76 and design partner Todd Kanipe designed a telescoping, high load roller/linear motion rail system that won approval. According to CBI’s Keith Bouchard, the linear rail system moves very smoothly and so far meets the expectations of this program.”

Linear Motion Application – According to MFA Antiquity Specialist Jean Louis Lachevere, “All of these moves present very real dangers to the artifact being transported. In this case, we have a 8000 pound relief which already has its problems due to age and the fact that it is limestone ( limestone is very vulnerable to the atmosphere ).” Seen from the front, the relief is straight. From the back, much of the top back is gone. Thus, the back of the relief has to be plastered so the back is flat. Pins are inserted to further reinforce the relief and then it is tipped on its back. It is then moved to its new atmospherically controlled display case. LM76’s design is used in the transfer from the dolly to the mounting rails and restraints in the display case. This 36” motion is fraught with things that can go wrong. One of the considerations is the possibility of an earthquake…any problem conceivable is taken into account.

Linear Motion Control Application – LM76 Jet Rail Bearings & Shafting

Linear Motion Control Application – How Would You Position Components Of An Experimental Reactor Vessel Weighing 33 Tons?

Easy … Using Custom made LM76 Jet Rail Bearings and Shafting!

LM76-TAE-Jet-Rail-Bearings-and-Shafting-01

LM76

E. Longmeadow, MA –Linear Motion Control Application – When a privately funded research company was ready to move from their original Proof of Concept to a sustainable fusion reactor to produce clean sustainable energy, they realized that extremely heavy components would need to be assembled and disassembled and reassembled again for design modifications and maintenance. The completed assembly would be the length of two buses and easy alignment of the individual components would be critical.

The main reactor, the fusion containment chamber that is capable of containing a plasma medium of 10 to 15 million degrees is made of non-magnetic stainless steel as are many of the components. The Plasma Medium could be described as a football shaped blob about 1 meter in diameter by 2 meters long. The plasma medium is injected from each end of the reactor assembly by Plasma Guns.

LM76-TAE-Jet-Rail-Bearings-and-Shafting-02-4w

 

See photo to right – On each end of the assembly is a Plasma Gun. The Plasma Guns as are all the floor lever components, are positioned using LM76 Jet Rail Bearings and shafting. The Jet Rail Bearings and Shafting can be seen near to bottom of the picture.

In addition to the reactor, high energy particle beam generators are positioned at angles to the fusion containment chamber. These particle bean generators form and suspend the plasma medium for an indefinite period of time in the center of the containment chamber. These generators have to be easily positioned – by hand – to accommodate adjustments and re-assembly.

LM76-TAE-Jet-Rail-Bearings-and-Shafting-03

See photo to the left – Neutral-Beam Injectors are positioned around the Reaction Chamber to position and shape the Plasma Medium. These are also moved into position on LM76 Jet Rail Bearings and Shafting.

In addition to supporting the weight of the components, the bearings selected to move these massive loads during the construction and testing of the fusion reactor would have to be non-magnetic. Working with engineers, LM76 developed a custom 3 inch Jet Rail Bearing designed to carry both the weight of the fusion reactor and the high energy particle generators. In addition LM76 supplied precision ground, 3 inch 303 stainless steel (non-magnetic) shafting.

The custom manufactured Jet Rail Roller Blocks and 303 stainless steel shafting simplified the assembly/disassembly of the fusion containment chamber and components while ensuring critical alignment throughout travel.

This breakthrough fusion reactor is still in the experimental stage. A commercially viable reactor would need to contain 100 million degrees. Why is the project so important? Because in addition to producing sustainable energy, its only by-product is, environmentally safe, “helium ash.”.

 

See photo below – The drawing below shows all the components in place. The assembly is 60 meters long and supported on LM76 jet Rail Bearings and Shafting.
