Application Story - 3-D Laser Scanner Uses JVL's MAC Motors!
Scantech´s newest portable 3-D scanner utilises 2 JVL MAC motors
Birkerød, Denmark and Morrow, OH (USA) -Motion Control Application - 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.
Application Story - Shakespeare In a New Light With Flat, Brushless Motors!
Since 2011 audiences can see plays in a whole new light after a literally revolutionary development in theatre lighting with flat, motion control brushless motors playing a leading role.
Fall River, MA -Motion Control Application - The RSC Lightlock was developed by Vince Herbert, head of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Lighting Department. To address a problem that has plagued lighting designers for years the momentum of heavy, remote-controlled spotlights. Until now using flexible, lightweight support structures for these lights was out of the question. Attempting to stop would set the whole gantry swinging after each motorized movement, sending spotlights all over the stage and ruining the performance.
