Made for applications in packaging, robotics, medical instruments, assembly, semiconductor manufacturing, engraving, inspection and pick-and-place, IMS' newest NEMA 42 high torque brushless motor has fully integrated drive and control electronics, promising a high starting torque, built-in regeneration circuitry, high positioning accuracy, stability at low speeds, and no dithering at zero speed. It allows greater inertia mismatch and doesn't need tuning. Options include input voltage of 120 or 240 V ac, two motor lengths, internal or remote encoder, control knob for manual positioning and integrated planetary gearbox. It comes in both step and direction (Microstepping) and fully programmable (Motion Control) versions, with aluminum housing for interfacing to standard industrial circular connectors and cordsets.

The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
