Linear stepper travels at 80 in./s

NOVEMBER 16, 2009--Compact, industry-standard, 12-lb linear steppers (53 N continuous force, 16 lb, 71 N peak force) travel at 80 in./s (2 m/s), with 1-µm (0.00004-in.) resolution, and can operate in any axis.

NOVEMBER 16, 2009--Compact, industry-standard, 12-lb linear steppers (53 N continuous force, 16 lb, 71 N peak force) travel at 80 in./s (2 m/s), with 1-µm (0.00004-in.) resolution, and can operate in any axis. The steppers feature 1G acceleration and are appropriate for new and existing gantry robots; pick-and-place systems; wire bonders; parts transfer; and fiberoptic, semiconductor, medical, and other precision robotic applications. Available with a hard chrome solid or hollow platen in lengths up to 144 in. (3.65 m), longer travel can be achieved by supplying the platens in sections. The resolution of the two-phase or four-phase motors is determined by the driver. One full step equals .010 in. (250 µm) and one microstep equals .00004 in. (1 µm). The stepper can also be operated as a brushless linear servo with up to 5travels at 80 in./sG acceleration and no loss of accuracy.

PRESS RELEASE

Low Cost, High Performance, Linear Stepper Motors For New and Existing Applications

Santa Clarita, CA -- Choose an easily integrated, low cost, high performance, 2-phase or 4-phase, linear stepper motor from H2W Technologies to improve the performance of an existing motion control system or create a new high speed, high accuracy system. These, compact, industry standard, "12 lb. Linear Steppers" (53 N continuous Force, 16 lbs, 71 N peak force) travel at 80 in/sec. [2 m/sec.], with 1 micron [0.00004 in.] resolution, and can operate in any axis. Additionally, these "12 lb. Linear Steppers" feature 1G acceleration and are the ideal choice for any of the following: New and existing gantry robots, pick-and-place systems, wire bonders, parts transfer, fiber optic, semiconductor, medical, and other precision robotic applications.

Available with a hard chrome, solid or hollow "platen" (track) in lengths up to 144 inches (3.65 meters), longer travels can be achieved by supplying the platens in sections, the H2W Technologies, industry standard, "12 lb. Linear Stepper" is capable of very precise position, velocity and acceleration control when integrated with a microstepping drive and indexer. The resolution of these 2-phase or 4-phase motors is determined by the driver. One full step equals .010 in. [250 microns] and one microstep equals .00004 in. [1 micron]. Ideal for open loop positioning applications with moderate payloads, the "12 lb. Linear Stepper" can also be operated as a brushless linear servo with up to 5 Gs of acceleration and no loss of accuracy.

Capable of generating 12 lbs. [53 N] of continuous force these single axis linear steppers have a forcer [motor], air bearings, side guide bearings, and platen [track] integrated into a compact, low-profile, package. The forcer connects to a motion control system via flying leads or "D" connector. Multiple forcers can operate on a single platen at the same time. Linear steppers can also be custom designed to meet a particular application's requirements. Complete motion control packages including and indexer and driver for open loop operation or encoder, motion controller, and driver for closed loop brushless servo motor operation are available from H2W Technologies.

H2W Technologies, Inc. is dedicated to the design and manufacture of linear and rotary motion products that are used in the motion control industry. The complete line of linear electric motors includes: Single and dual axis linear steppers, DC brush and brushless linear motors, voice coil actuators, and AC induction motors. Also offered is a complete line of ball screw, lead screw and belt driven positioning stages.

Other motion control products include: Limited angle torque motors for compact, limited angular excursion rotary servo applications, 3 phase brushless rotary servo motors with matching digital servo amplifiers and permanent magnet linear brakes for fail-safe, zero power braking for baggage handling and people moving applications as well as amusement park rides.

With over 75 years combined experience in the linear and rotary motion field, the H2W Technologies team of engineers offers the optimal solution to the most demanding motion control, requirements.
