Linear Shaft Motor achieves sub-micron motion profiles.

Featuring cylindrical design, Linear Shaft Motor is able to use 100% of magnetic flux, which cuts coils at 90° angle. Ironless unit has no cogging issues and does not produce Eddy currents, minimizing heat generation. Additionally, motor does not have inherent airflow restrictions, which also cuts heat production. Since motor does not dump heat into work point, it enables precise and accurate...
