Application Story - In "Off-Roading" the LM76 Black Racer Bearing is a Winner!
Anyone who's worked on cars knows how critically important ball joints are to steering and suspension. They also know what happens when ball joints fail!
E. Longmeadow, MA -- Motion Control - Application Story - When an aftermarket manufacturer of off-road steering and suspension systems needed an upper ball joint bearing, they called LM76. These systems are purchased by off-road vehicle owners who want to upgrade their OEM steering and suspension units for hard-hitting environments. Pounding, shock, sand and debris are all part of the mix when it comes to extreme off-roading and LM76 Black Racer bearings are right at home. According to company engineers, after a year of brutal testing, Black Racer met all design goals and exceeded expectations.
Air Bearing Linear Motion Positioning Stage from H2W Technologies!
Santa Clarita, CA -- H2W introduces its latest high precision air bearing linear positioning stage (ABS-012-12-030-X). The ABS series stage incorporates five magnetically preloaded air bearings for both load carrying and lateral guidance. The base of stage is constructed using a lapped granite surface plate and the lateral guidance is controlled by a granite straight edge that is mounted to the base. The non-contact 3 phase brushless linear motor operates in conjunction with a high resolution linear encoder for closed loop operation.
MICROMO Introduces The New IEH2-4096 Integrated Encoder Best in its Class!
Clearwater, Florida - The new Motion Control FAULHABER IEH2-4096 integrated encoder offers higher resolution, an expanded operating temperature range and improved speed control, especially in the low speed range. The new model lengthens the motor by just 1.4 mm and can be combined with numerous precious metal commutated DC micro motors. Because these are used in very small machines and assemblies, size plays a decisive role.
With the Motion Control IEH2-4096, the previous components sensor and circuit are replaced by one single chip Hall module. This newly developed circuit board is more thermally robust than the previously used magneto resistive sensors and integrated circuits.
NEW Lower Price for Powerful Microstepping Drive from Servo2Go!
A powerful stepper drive available from Servo2Go costs the same as a competitors drive without a built-in power supply!
Greenville, DE -- The Motion Control STAC5 provides up to 5 amps per phase from a high bus voltage with sophisticated current control, delivering high torque over a board range of speeds. An advanced anti-resonance algorithm with electronic damping allows for maximum torque utilization and fast settling times.
The Motion Control STAC5 is available in 120VAC and 220VAC versions, both housed in a compact package.

LM76's FDA/USDA Compliant Linear Bearings Are - "THE" Only Solutions!
E. Longmeadow, MA -- What do you do when you’re motion control linear actuator bearings are including cheese debris? Particularly when your cheese slicing system requires FDA/caustic washdown compliance and FDA inspectors are on site reviewing all process operations for included debris which can propagate harmful bacteria.
Maxon Motor Introduces the EC-4Pole 32 HD Motor with Planetary Gearhead!
The new maxon EC-4pole 32 HD motor has been designed for extremely rough operating conditions, particularly applications in deep drilling. This 480 W motor can withstand 200 °C, 1000 G, -5000 m and 1700 bar.
Fall River, MA -- Deep drilling technology (called “downhole drilling” in the field of oil and gas exploration) makes it possible to recover oil and gas from depths of more than 2500 m. By combining deep drilling with directional drilling (dynamic position alignment of a bore in the earth), previously unreachable oil reserves are being opened up, with drilling depths of approx. 5000 m and drill lengths of up to 11000 m. The development of specialized electronics and motion control drives has made it possible to better monitor and control many functions across the entire drilling process. For instance, it is now possible to dynamically measure and adjust the position of the drill head during the drilling process.
