New! Motion Control Components & Technology Added 7-23-2014
NEW MOTION CONTROL COMPONENTS AND TECHNOLOGY IN THE SPOTLIGHT!
"Gotcha Stick" from STI Features New Dimensions for Human Arm
Scientific Technologies, Inc. (STI), introduces the new "Gotcha Stick" Safe Distance Scale. This three-segment safe distance stick accurately tests the allowable barrier opening size based on the distance from the point of operation. It features English measurements on one side, and Metric measurements on the other.
Linear Stepper Positioning Stage from H2W Technologies!
Santa Clarita, CA -- H2W introduces the LSS-060-04-006-ME linear stepper positioning stage which is part of the LSS series family. This stage has a stroke of 60 in [1500 mm] and generates 6 lbs [26.6 N] of continuous force. It incorporates a 1 micron resolution linear encoder, which when operated under closed loop control, improves system accuracy and repeatability.
MICROMO Launches FDM0620 Series - Setting New Standards for Stepper Motors!
Clearwater, Florida - Motion Control -Stepper Motors - With the new FDM0620 series, MICROMO presents a high performance FAULHABER stepper motor with minimal size. Setting new standards for compact drive systems, all components (including connections) are in a housing that measures just 9.7 mm in length and 6 mm in diameter. With this combination of minimal space requirements and maximum power, reliability and production quality, the FAULHABER Group continues its success story in the field of micro motors and expands its family of stepper motors in the 6 to 22 mm diameter range.
Hollow Core Linear Voice Coil Motors from MotiCont!
Van Nuys, CA - The high performance compact positioning voice coil driven linear stages are used in positioning applications where high speed, high acceleration or high accuracy is required..
The hollow core motorized linear stages are fully self-contained. Each stage utilizes a voice coil motor, a linear carriage system, an optical quadrature encoder feedback device and a home switch. The standard positioning resolutions of 1 micron through 29.95 microns are available for immediate delivery. Other resolutions are available upon request.
Shimpo Drives Announces Its New STH Servo-Driven Rotary Actuator!
Greenville, DE -- Shimpo Drives announces its new Motion Control STH servo-driven rotary actuator. The STH is a mid-performance rotary actuator that sets a new price/performance point in rotary positioning.
A Motion Control Shimpo Able servo reducer is the interface between the servo motor and STH output actuator. The Able gearbox features simple mounting of nearly any small to medium servo motor and gives the complete STH package net ratios ranging from 12:1 through 324:1.
BURLINGTON, MA -- Steinmeyer announced a name change of its Feinmess Dresden subsidiary. It will be known as Steinmeyer Mechatronik. Since 1992, the Feinmess Dresden subsidiary has been part of the international Steinmeyer Group, responsible for designing and manufacturing high precision positioning systems. This name, and also logo, change allows the company to strengthen its appearance and brand recognition in the market place. Furthermore this brings all of the Steinmeyer knowledge and know how under one global brand representing the highest precision and quality to our customers.
High Force Air Bearing XY Voice Coil Positioning Stage!
Santa Clarita, CA -- H2W introduces its latest custom XY voice coil positioning stage (VCS08-700-08/350-AB-01-MC-XY) which is guided by precision air bearings. This minimizes the amount of friction and reduces the pitch, yaw, and roll in the system. The stage is driven by three NCC series moving coil type linear actuators which are guided by parallel air bearing shafts. It is operated under closed loop position control. This system was designed specifically for an accelerometer testing application.
