Motion Control – Custom Linear Mechanisms

Custom Linear Mechanisms from Steinmeyer …

motion control custom stages

Welcome to Where Precision Is.  You Can Turn to Steinmeyer for Design and Assembly of Custom Linear Mechanisms for your Precision Positioning Systems
Modern mechatronic systems consist of numerous precision components that must be assembled in complex configurations. Here, every detail counts.Steinmeyer Mechatronik, a division of August Steinmeyer GmbH, offers design and assembly services for a variety of demanding applications.We have deep experience in medical devices, laboratory instrumentation, optical inspection & semiconductor positioning. Our engineers can implement your finished design or optimize your concept.

For Example …

Linear Stage with Foldback Drive

Drive relocated to the rear

The task of this customer-specific OEM development was to create a travel path of 150 mm in 250 mm installation space, in which the load is wider than long. The available installation space had to be completely filled with an aluminum base body in order to achieve the necessary rigidity.

Integrated ball screw with synchronous belt

The ball screw was integrated between the base body and the moving carriage plate. It was also moved downwards via a pair of synchronized pulleys with synchronous belts. The transmission error of this additional transmission element could be minimized by optimally adjusting the pre-stress, thereby resulting in only a slight increase in repeatability errors. A compromise also had to be reached on the guiding system with regard to the guiding relationship. The lateral distance between the carriages had to be greater than the distance between the carriages in the direction of travel. Less stringent requirements for straightness made that acceptable.

Motion Control – Redundant Coil Voice Coil Motor Available from H2W Technologies, Inc!

Motion Control Redundant Voice Coil Motor from H2W Technologies!
motion control redundant voice coil motor

 

H2W Logo

Santa Clarita, CA —–

When three-phase AC power is applied to the primary, a travelling electromagnetic flux wave is induced and moves relative to the primary. The wave induces an electric current in the conductive reaction plate. The induced electric current interacts with the magnetic flux to produce a linear force. The speed of the motor can be varied by changing the input frequency using an adjustable frequency drive.

Each coil pair operates as its own voice coil.

Redundancy is a requirement on many flight systems in a special case when one coil faults, the other can be used to make the motor “fault-resistant”.

Other systems require simplified circuitry which would not allow the change of current polarity in order to change the direction, in these cases each coil can be used to drive the coil in a single direction. The challenge in manufacturing a redundant coil is ensuring the same performance no matter the coil, which requires precise manipulation of the magnetic circuit design, and the precise coil layout to ensure the identical operation and constants for each coil. This will allow the controls to seamlessly switch between the two coils.

There are two ways of accomplishing this coil redundancy. The most common way would be to generate multiple coils operating on individual magnetic circuits. This requires a longer coil and multiple magnetic circuits; however this is the most robust design and the least vulnerable to damage or interference from the redundant coil. The NCC08-18-025-2R2C is an example of the multiple coil design. An alternate method, which allows for the most compact solution, would be a multi-filar wind. This method only requires one magnetic circuit, which is why the length is shorter. In this case multiple coils are wound in the same winding space.

Quiet 3-to-1 Speed Reducers Using Traction Drive Technology Feature 98% Efficiency!

motion control speed reducer

 

RMI Drives-Logo

North Babylon, NY – Rolling Motion Industries (RMI) has released for production the next two in it’s series of highly efficient speed reducers. These 3-to-1 speed reducers use “game changing” traction drive technology. The MAR-17-1-3.1 and the MAR-23-1-3.1 Speed Reducers feature 98% efficiency and with only 6 moving parts they typically out last conventional gearboxes and speed reducers by a factor of 3. The MAR17-1-3.1 Speed Reducer is designed for input speeds up to 3600 rpm with 10 to 20 in/lbs of torque, and the MAR-23-1-3.1 Speed Reducer is also rated for speeds to 3600 rpm but with an input of 20 to 30 in/lbs of torque. As the output speed is reduced by a factor of 3 the output torque increases by a factor of 3.

Using an engineered traction fluid with a coefficient of friction of just 0.1 to 0.12 that cools and lubricates the traction drive these high efficiency speed reducers generate up to 72% less heat even after days of continuous operation. There is no slippage or lost motion between the input and output shafts even though there is no metal to metal contact as the traction fluid is continuously changing from liquid-to-solid-to-liquid as the driving and driven elements interface in the drive. Creating 38% lower dB at 3000 rpm than conventional gearboxes these people friendly speed reducers are ideal for use in medical equipment such as mobile hospital equipment and dialysis machines as well as pumps, blowers, fans, turbo and super chargers, conveyers, HVAC systems, and other power transmission and motion applications.

Having low vibration, and no torque losses from 10 to 3000 rpm, these speed reducers featuring traction drive technology lets a motor operate at peak efficiency while having a damping effect on a motor’s torque ripple. These revolutionary speed reducers are available with an optional overriding clutch. Incorporating standard NEMA mounting dimensions, these speed reducers 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”.
