Brushless Linear Motors come in cog-free and iron-core models.

December 19, 2014

Operating at speeds up to 240 ips, cog-free BLS Series is intended for long-stroke, high-speed, closed-loop applications. Iron-core BLD Series, with forces of more than 500 lb continuous, is designed for long-stroke, high-force, closed-loop applications. Both are available with motor coils featuring Hall-effect assemblies for trapezoidal commutation, or without Hall effects if used with linear encoder and commutation is achieved through software.

Three-turbine Wind Tower provides near zero downtime.

December 15, 2014

Integrating 3 turbines in row or series, INVELOX™ Wind Funnel System captures, concentrates, and accelerates wind before delivering it to turbines safely located at ground level. Multiple turbines in single tower means nearly zero operational downtime since maintenance can be done on one turbine while others continue producing energy. In addition, with INVELOX capacity factor at 60–90% and turbines installed at ground level, maintenance costs and failure are greatly minimized. Read More

Linear Voice Coil Actuator delivers peak force of 0.5 lb.

December 12, 2014

With outside diameter of 0.375 in., Model LAH04-10-000A features operating stroke of 0.157 in. Moving magnet design offers optimized heat dissipation. By allowing magnet to move and keeping coil fixed, any heat generated by coil assembly can be conducted away. No moving wires and high heat dissipation make VCA suited for high duty cycle applications such as pick and place machines, remotely controlled switching, medical and laboratory equipment, military and aerospace.

Blank Feeder features fully automated tooling change.

December 12, 2014

Based on CompactTransfer and designed for blanks up to 4,100 x 2,100 mm, HighSpeedTransfer (HST) employs linear servo technology and comes with press simulation software that determines safest, most efficient travel curve. At 6 m distance between press centers, up to 15 strokes/min are feasible. Respectively, theoretical max acceleration for horizontal and vertical axis is 25 adn 15 m/sec². Unit fastens to press frame in travel direction, and all modules mount above floor.

Sensor Bearing protects against power surge damage.

December 12, 2014

Serving as ready-to-mount, plug-and-play unit incorporating shielded sensor and deep groove ball bearing, SKF Sensor Bearing is equipped with EMC filter, offering protection against potential damage to bearing's sensitive electronics from power surges or electric discharges, particularly in AC electric motor applications. Depending on application, bearing can measure range of operating conditions, such as speed, position, and direction of shaft, among others. Read More

Fractured Race Spherical Bearings support high load and wear.

December 9, 2014

Manufactured using 52100 bearing steel, GEZ Series suits high-wear and increased-load applications in industrial markets. Strength of steel prevents race from being molded around ball, so slight fracture allows ball to be inserted. Hardened and ground surfaces allow for full ball to race conformity, which reduces wear and localized stress while promoting smooth operation. Also available, sealed version keeps grease in and debris out. All varieties are coated for corrosion resistance. Read More

Intelligent Stepless Motor is deisgned for reliability.

December 8, 2014

Based on hybrid step motor, 42 x 42 x 70 mm iMOT172S XM-CAN reaches peak torque of 500 mNm at 1,000 rpm without gearbox. One PCB integrates magnetic encoder and iPOS motion controller that utilizes Technosoft MotionChip™ technology and provides 7 I/Os. Configuration, tuning, and local programming of iPOS drive can be done using EasyMotion Studio platform, and absolute single-turn position sensor provides 4,096 counts/revolution for speed and position control accurate down to 5 arc min.
