MOTION CONTROL: Applimotion’s LARC Series available up to 1 meter in diameter. Driven by customer demand and new applications in large size with large scale through hole, Applimotion has expanded its offering to cover the need. Moving items at large diameters has always been a challenge when the mechanical structure cannot support a full size motor and the torque of a full size motor is not required. The LARC motors offer a good alternative at a reasonable price.
These motors remain true to the ULT ultra-thin origins with very low profile construction and operate from traditional three phase brushless dc or brushless ac servo drivers with voltage ranges from 12-30V. Hall device options are available.
LARC motors are offered with 360 continuous rotation magnet track or with arc-segments of magnets if you motion is limited to a certain angle.
Applimotion continues to quickly react to customer feedback providing unique motor options in short lead times. The ULT motor line has evolved over the last 10 years with over 200 different models to choose from. The LARC motors are just the next step in integrated motor motion.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
