NEW MOTION CONTROL COMPONENTS AND TECHNOLOGY IN THE SPOTLIGHT!
"Gotcha Stick" from STI Features New Dimensions for Human Arm
Is Your Work Place Safe? ... STI introduces the new "Gotcha Stick" Safe Distance Scale. This three-segment safe distance stick accurately tests the allowable barrier opening size. It is based on the distance from the point of operation. It features English measurements on one side, and Metric measurements on the other.
CANopen Motor Controllers for Electric Mobility and Vehicular Applications!
Greenville, DE -- Motion Control - The DVC series motor controllers from Advanced Motion Controls are digital four-quadrant servo drives purpose-designed and built to operate today's modern mobile electric vehicular platforms. 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. The rigidity under moment and torsional loads is increased by this design. Larger ball size is used to enhance the load capabilities. This design offers equal loading in all directions while providing smooth motion.
Vadnais Heights, MN Motion Control Components - Nexen Group introduces the Flange Mounted Clutch-Brake Enclosed (FMCBE), offering food-production machine builders a clutch-brake with built-in hygiene features to prevent contamination. The FMCBE is BISSC-approved (Baking Industry Sanitation Standards Committee), and ideal for any environment where cleanliness is a primary concern. The FMCBE offers other significant advantages as well. Compared to electrically actuated clutch-brakes, Nexen’s air engaged clutch-brakes: last 2-6 time longer, use 1/3 less power, have 30% less reaction time, 40% more torque and 30% more thermal horsepower.
AxCent Servo Drives for Centralized Motion Control Systems Available from Servo2Go!
Greenville, DE -- Motion Control Components - Controllers - The AxCent™ Servo Drive (Axes for Centralized control schemes) product platform from ADVANCED Motion Controls brings the proven and powerful performance expected of ADVANCED Motion Controls, with improvements to the design architecture that utilize our years of experience in the industry and the latest advancements in modern servo system design.
Large Clear Aperture Rotary Table, Servobelt 350 from Intellidrives!
Philadelphia, PA, - Motion Control Components - The RTHP-B-350 features large clear aperture of 350 mm and provides arc-second resolution when driven from a micro-stepping or brushless servomotor controller. The low profile design is made possible by the use of compact precision bearing. The rotating carriage of the stage provides unlimited motorized rotation angle of the load up to 100kg and has large clear aperture to allow the passage of the optical path or cables directly through the stage.
The main body of the stage is made from lightweight anodized aluminum and can attach directly to an optical table or moving linear or XY actuators and can be mounted at any orientation.
