series of high-performance linear motor stages are offered in four different
series with 38
in travels from
100 mm to 1.5 m. The PRO165LM,
PRO225LM, PRO280LM and PRO560LM all
feature a linear motion guide bearing system and high-performance brushless linear
high-power, cog-free linear
motors drive the PRO LM
series. The non-magnetic forcer coil provides high force with zero cogging for
position control. Aerotech's linear motor stages have zero backlash and no
windup. The magnetic field of the linear motor is self-contained within the
U-channel design, making these stages well-suited for high-performance
the stray magnetic fields generated by flat motor magnet tracks.
Noncontact linear encoders with micron-level repeatabilities are standard on
all PRO LM
series stages. Either a line-driver output or amplified sine-wave output
encoder is available. The optional HALAR factory calibration further increases
the standard accuracy and repeatability.
Sealed linear motion
guide bearings with integral wipers are incorporated to provide payload
capacity and long life. Both the metal waycover and tabletop are treated with a
hardcoat that is scratch-resistant and provides protection in the harshest
applications, while the tabletop utilizes stainless-steel Helicoilâ„˘ inserts to
protect mounting holes against thread wear. Several tabletop options are
available for metric or English mounting, as well as for direct interface with
our popular ADRS, ADRT, and AGR rotary stages. In addition, configurable cable
management options are available for single- or multi-axis systems.
One way to keep a Formula One racing team moving at breakneck speed in the pit and at the test facility is to bring CAD drawings of the racing vehicle’s parts down to the test facility and even out to the track.
Most of us would just as soon step on a cockroach rather than study it, but that’s just what researchers at UC Berkeley did in the pursuit of building small, nimble robots suitable for disaster-recovery and search-and-rescue missions.
Design engineers need to prepare for a future in which their electronic products will use not just one or two, but possibly many user interfaces that involve touch, vision, gestures, and even eye movements.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies.
You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived.
