Motion Control – Highly Efficient 2 Way Traction Drives Reduce Motor Torque Ripple up to 84%!

North Babylon, NY – Motion Control Components – Rolling Motion Industries (RMI) has released two new traction drives. The MAR-17-2-2.1 Traction Drive and the MAR-23-2-2.1 Traction Drive. These highly efficient 2-Way gearless traction drives with only six moving parts use an engineered traction fluid with a coefficient of friction of just 0.1 to 0.12. The MAR-17-2-2.1 and MAR-23-2-2.1 Traction Drives have demonstrated an up to 84% reduction in motor torque ripple when measured at the output shaft of the motor and then measures at the output shaft of the traction drive. The MAR17-2-2.1 Traction Drive is designed for speeds to 3600 rpm with 10 to 20 in/lbs of torque, and the MAR-23-2-2.1 Traction Drive is rated for 3600 rpm with 20 to 30 in/lbs of torque.

Having no metal to metal contact these compact, high efficiency drives generate up to 72% less heat after 24 hours of continuous operation, and these permanently lubricated traction drives typically last three times longer than conventional gearboxes, They also create up to 38% lower dB at 3000 rpm than conventional gearboxes which is less than a typical home appliance. Even though there is no metal to metal contact there is no slippage or lost motion between the input and output shafts.

Operating at temperatures that are lower than a motor’s, with low vibration, and no torque losses from 10 to 3000 rpm, these traction drives permit a motor to operate at peak efficiency. Applications for these 2-Way traction drives which can operate in explosive environments (ie. zone 1 and 21) include: Medical (including patient handling), pharmaceuticals, wafer handling, robotics, conveyers, sorting, pumps, assembly, battery operated vehicles, and other power transmission and motion applications.

These revolutionary drives are available with an optional overriding clutch. Incorporating standard NEMA mounting dimensions, these drives can be easily integrated into new and existing applications.

About Rolling Motion Industries (RMI)-

About Rolling Motion Industries (RMI): In 1993 John Pawloski and his brother Ray took over the family business, Jewelers Machinist Co. They realized they needed to switch from outdated conventional thread grinders to CNC thread grinders. As a result, Jewelers Machinist Co is recognized as the source of some of the most complex thread grinding in the industry. The concept for the RMI traction drive came from John in 2007. Working in that high precision industry aided John in the development of the RMI Traction Drive.

In the years that followed, the design of the individual components and formula of the engineered traction fluid were finalized, testing was completed, a patent granted, and production begun. The RMI Traction Drive is one of the most efficient ways to transmit power from one point to another. Utilizing rolling motion, RMI is able to transfer power at various ratios with minimal energy loss. Tested against V-belt, direct drive, chain, and gearbox setups, RMI Traction Drives offer energy saving benefits through true efficiency rating percentages up to 98%. The high efficiency of the traction drive allows electric motors to run at their peak efficiency ranges.

There are many applications where it can be used from automotive to industrial to medical. The RMI traction drive can be used in the electric vehicle market and precision applications. Offering benefits such as low backlash and no back driving, it set a new standard for “high efficiency”.

The New Sales Funnel – Adapting to Change

Motion Control Marketing – Adapting to the New Marketing Paradigm

A message for Motion Control Marketers

The role marketing is expanding!

As a marketer of technical products I make an effort to view the sales process as a consumer.  Fact – All consumers are not alike.  Speaking only for myself, although, I believe there are many like me, that want to do their own research, and ONLY talk to sales when they are ready to.

Depending on the consumer it may be early or late in the sales process.  Perhaps the sales funnel should reflect an overlap rather than have a line at which the process switches from marketing to sales.  That said, consumers need to be aware of a product, have their interest aroused, have cause to consider the product, and have an interest in purchasing the product.  Marketing today necessarily has a bigger role in the sales process than in years past.

Years ago (pre-internet) a potential customer saw a product release or an ad in a magazine, circled a number on a “Bingo Card” and got a sales call made on him.  Today the potential customer sees a product release or ad and starts to do his own research.  In addition to some reviews, he will find data sheets, application notes, videos, dedicated web pages, and blogs online (products of the marketing department) all of which will be carefully reviewed before a sales person is ever called.

Developing and implementing an effective Business-to-Business marketing program for technical products that:

Creates Awareness of …

Generates Interest in …

Causes Consideration of …

Raises the level of Intent to …

and

Aids in the Evaluation of …

Does not have to be expensive! 

However, It does have to be well planned …       … and that plan has to be carried out.

For large companies the marketing program can include: Paid Advertising, Product Releases, an expensive interactive Website, a Blog, Data Sheets and Brochures.  All effective tools to create Awareness, Interest, Consideration, etc.

For smaller companies an effective reasonably priced, affordable marketing program can include: Product Releases, a Website, perhaps a Blog, and Data Sheets.

Product Releases are great for creating Awareness of, they also generate Interest in, and cause further Consideration of your products, each time the release is seen in a different print or online publication.

The Website does not have to have an expensively developed “WOW” factor as much as it has to have the information needed to determine if your product is right for the prospects application, or if you have the capability of supplying a custom product to meet or perhaps even exceed his or her needs.

A simple inexpensive blog, can also be an effective marketing tool.

Data Sheets …   … Create a straight forward format for an online data sheet that provides the technical data needed helps in the Evaluation that then can lead to the Sale!

 For over 30 years I have been marketing exclusively Motion Control products. First as a Marketing Manager and then as Marketing Consultant.  I have enjoyed working with several companies for over 20 years.  Email me at dwtechcom@gmail.com and see how inexpensive an effective marketing program can be.

Voice Coil Positioning Stages – Overview –

The Voice Coil Positioning Stage is a compact, small footprint positioning stage. It is ideal for closed loop positioning applications with a short stroke where intricate position, velocity, and acceleration control is necessary.

Their compact size allows them to fit into small spaces. They have very low electrical and mechanical time constants. The low moving mass allows for high accelerations of light payloads.

The ironless core coil assembly has no magnetic attractive force to the stationary magnet assembly, which reduces the load on the bearing system, which increases the life of the bearing. There are no magnetic drag forces (hysteresis), which allows for higher accelerations.

These actuators are wound in such a way that no commutation is required for motion to occur. Electrical devices such as Hall Effects are not necessary. The result is a much simpler and more reliable system.

The VCS positioning stage incorporates the latest in linear motion technology:

Motors: non-commutated moving coil (NCC) or moving magnet (NCM) voice coil motors.

Bearings: Linear guidance and stiffness is achieved by using high precision ball slides or cross roller slides. Other types of bearings and bushings are available depending on the application.

Feedback: Non-contact optical or magnetic linear encoders with a center reference mark for homing. Typical encoder output is A and B square wave signals but sinusoidal output is available as an option. Analog feedback is available via LVDT or Force Transducer.

Limit Switches: Soft limits are typically used and monitored by the controller. But, if needed, end of travel limit switches may be included at both ends of the stroke. The switches can be either active high/low (5V to 24V). The limit switches can be used to shut down the amplifier or to signal the controller that an error has occurred. The limit switches can be an integral part of the encoder or can be mounted separately if required.

Hard Stops: Hard stops are incorporated into the ends of the stage to prevent over travel damage in the event of servo system failure.

 

Advantages:

  • Small Size, High Force to Weight Ratio
  • High Accelerations
  • No Cogging or Commutation
  • Custom Designs with Quick Turnaround Times
  • High Flux Density Neodymium Magnets are Used
  • Low Cost Economical Solution

Applications:

  • Mirror Tilt and Focusing
  • Z Axis for Pick and Place Equipment
  • Medical Diagnostic Probes and Laser Beam Steering
  • Vision Inspection
  • Miniature Position Control
  • Clean room

Stages can be ordered for any stroke up to 2 inches and any continuous force up to 100 lbs. The stages are built as the orders are placed, they are not stocked, as each customer requirement is different.

It should be noted that for both types of actuators (NCC & NCM) used for these stages, longer strokes are available but the efficiency or motor constant (Km) decreases as the stroke increases. This is due to the fact that the motor constant is inversely proportional to the stroke. If higher efficiency is desired for longer stroke actuators, the coil assembly can be wound as a multiphase coil and then it will have to be commutated. Please consult the factory for long stroke applications.
