Flat Voice Coil Actuator Developed for Factory Automation



San Marcos, Calif., January, 2003 - BEI Kimco Magnetics Division of BEI Technologies, Inc. has introduced it's first flat voice coil linear actuator. The model LA05-30-001 is a thin, rectangular shaped linear actuator featuring a total stroke of 0.4" (10 mm), a continuous stall force of 3.4 lb. (15 N) and a peak force rating of 8.5 lb. (38 N) (for 10 seconds max.). It is a two-wire, hysteresis free, cog free, direct drive linear servo with infinite position sensitivity and features a linear force constant characteristic for simple control.

Model LA05-30-001 finds use in applications such as pick-N-place machines, where they can be mounted into actuator packs for moving individual components during high-speed auto-insertion type operations. The flat actuator is also used in weaving equipment, for selection of threads.

Unloaded acceleration capability is 80 g's continuous and 150 g's for 10 seconds.

Model LA05-30-001 features a housed sliding coil force arm that is supported by its own bearings. It also has an integral position sensor and can be supplied with a driver.

Basic dimension: 74 mm W x 78 mm L x 12mm thick.
