Providing high power from battery supplies, the DVC series features a compact design, IP65 construction and multiple operating modes for controlling either permanent magnet brushed or brushless motors. Whether for traction / propulsion, steering, lifting or any other electrically driven actuation, the DVC series is the newest member in a long line of successful motor controlling solutions from Advanced Motion Controls.
Motion Control Application - 3-D Laser Scanner Uses JVL's MAC Motors!
Birkerød, Denmark and Morrow, OH (USA) -- Laser scanning is used to measure an object by scanning it with a laser and digitalising the data. Using this information, it is possible to copy or modify the scanned object in various ways using Scantech´s CAD/CAM system CARSO. The scanner system is used for restoration work, scaling models, and creating industrial moulds. For example, it is possible to scan a marble figure that is deteriorating, and use the CAD/CAM system and a 3-D lathe to produce a true copy of the pristine original. It is thus possible to save a lot of manual work.
Multi-axes Motion Control Systems with IntelLiGent Actuators from Intellidrives!
INTELLIGENT ACTUATORS are highly programmable, integrated actuators with a motor, encoder, amplifier, controller, USB communication, and IOs.
Philadelphia, PA, -- Motion Control Components and Systems - These stages come fully pre-configured and enable true out-of-the box controls. They are perfect for the confines and requirements of the laboratory and are also applicable for use in manufacturing environments. Rotary stages incorporate precision worm-gear drive mechanism and bearing components for accurate positioning performance over the lifetime of the product. Linear actuators are fitted with ball screws and linear ball bearings for accuracy and repeatability in precision applications.
Lintech's: MR, ARC & HRC Profile Rail Linear Recirculating Bearings are available from Electromate!
Vaughan, Ontario, Canada -- Motion Control -Lintech’s MR, ARC & HRC Profile Rail Linear Recirculating Bearings incorporate two or four rows of re-circulating balls arranged in a 45 degree contact angle with the raceway.
