Press Release Summary:
Designed to eliminate backlash, friction, and wear problems associated with mechanical transmissions, Linear ServoSLide(TM) incorporates brushless non-contact linear motor with low cogging for accurate positioning. Plug-and-play unit features 100-2,000 N force and 100 mm to 5 m stroke with 5-25 micron accuracy and 0.1-10 micron resolution. Limit sensors establish end of travel and home positions.
Original Press Release:
Linear ServoSlide(TM) Integrated Linear Servo Motor Solution
IntelLiDrives, Inc. released a new Linear ServoSLide(TM), pre-engineered linear servo motor slide, designed to eliminate backlash, friction and wear problems associated with the mechanical transmissions, such as ball/lead screws, rack & pinion and gearboxes
Linear ServoSLide(TM) features brush-less non-contact linear motor design with low cogging for fast and accurate positioning
Double rail bearing system is integrated into the slide to support moving carriage and to provide dynamic stiffness and precise straightness of travel
Precision non-contact linear position feedback with selectable resolution from 0.1 to 10 microns is mounted in the carriage to minimize thermal drift
Limit Sensors are incorporated to establish end of travel and "home" positions
Slide components are mounted in the high strength extruded aluminum housing precisely machined to provide outstanding straightness and flatness for installation in horizontal or vertical orientations.
Linear ServoSLide(TM) incorporates connector panel to provide "plug-in" connectivity and quick disconnect for all signal and power requirements as well as cable transport module with high flex robotic cable installed and pre-wired to the connector panel.
Multi-axes systems - gantries and XYZ robotic arms - can be easily constructed using multiple Linear ServoSLides(TM).
