Motion Control Tutorial – Linear Induction Motor: How it Works.

What is all the hype about the Hyperloop? How does it move? What is the technology that makes it possible?

H2W Technologies Linear Induction Motor Tutorial

H2W Logo

 

Santa Clarita, CA —– Motion Control Tutorial – How Does a Linear Induction Motor Work? – Linear induction motor (LIM) theory is most easily understood as a rotary motor that has been cut and unrolled to generate linear motion, instead of rotary motion. It is comprised of two parts, the primary and secondary, which interact with one another only when power is applied. Either the primary or the secondary can be fixed while the other moves.

H2W Technologies -Motion Control - Tutorial - Linear Induction Motor Tutorial

 

When three-phase AC power is applied to the primary, a travelling electromagnetic flux wave is induced and moves relative to the primary. The wave induces an electric current in the conductive reaction plate. The induced electric current interacts with the magnetic flux to produce a linear force. The speed of the motor can be varied by changing the input frequency using an adjustable frequency drive.

The primary consists of a three-phase coil assembly, equivalent to the stator of a rotary motor. The three-phase coils are wound and inserted into a steel lamination stack along with thermal protection components. The coil windings and stack are then encapsulated in a thermally conductive epoxy.

The secondary, known as a rotor in a traditional rotary induction motor, is a reaction plate. This plate can be comprised of aluminum or copper, and a steel backing. The reaction plate length is equal to the length of the coil plus the stroke. A bearing system is required to maintain the air gap between the primary and secondary.

See the YouTube Video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJD5d2-b5ZI

Linear induction motors can be manufactured in a wide range of force outputs, speeds, and footprints. For single-sided assemblies, the reaction plate consists of 1/8″ thick aluminum backed by a 1/4″ thick steel plate, and for double-sided assemblies the reaction plate is 1/8” thick aluminum or copper only. If the reaction plate is round and it has a center shaft with rotary bearings, the system will produce rotary motion.

H2W Technologies Linear Induction Motor Tutorial - Drawing

 

Why Use a Linear Induction Motor?

Linear induction motors are ideal for H2W Technologies Linear Induction Motor Tutorial - Drawingapplications that require rapid movement of large payloads. Linear induction motors can achieve speeds in excess of 1800 inches per second (45 m/s) and accelerations in the range of 3 to 4 g’s. Standard LIMs can produce forces in the range of 720 lbs (3200 N) at a 3% duty cycle. Multiple motors can be used in conjunction with each other to generate larger forces.

Linear Induction Motor Applications

LIMs can be found in theme park rides, water rides, people moving systems, high speed transportation and maglev propulsion applications. Here are some well-known examples:

Hyperloop

Hyperloop is a high-speed transport system for passengers and goods, incorporating reduced pressure tubes, pressurized pods, linear induction motors, and air compressors. Linear induction motors are used to propel and decelerate the pods over the tracks and through the tubes. The LIMs are reversible so the same motor that propels the pod in one direction down the track can be used to propel the pod back to where it started. The pods could potentially “float” on an air bearing to eliminate friction.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disneyland Resort

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is one of the first roller coasters to use linear induction motors to accelerate cars out of the station. This allows the cars to start moving at high speeds from a stationary state, without the typical hill-and-chain start. The LIMs are also used to park cars in storage.

California Screamin at Disneyland Resort

California Screamin utilizes LIMs to launch the cars of the roller coaster. They are used again further into the ride to accelerate the cars as they travel over the hills.

Tomorrowland Transit Authority at Walt Disney World, Magic Kingdom Park

Linear induction motors power Tomorrowland Transit Authority (formerly known as the People Mover), moving large cars at smooth, slow speeds through Tomorrowland.

Dawwama at Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi, Yas Island

The first section of Yas Island’s Dawwama water coaster is powered by LIMS. At each of the hills, the linear induction motors launch the tubes through the uphill sections. This method of propulsion in water coasters is called hydromagnetic technology.

Thunder Rapids in White Water Bay, Six Flags Fiesta Texas

Thunder Rapids, to open in 2017, will be the first water coaster is the USA to utilize hydromagnetic technology. Linear induction motors are combined with turbine technology to keep the tube speeding along the slide and over the hills.

Motion Control – Super Accurate Magnetic Scales Equals Quality of Optical Scales!

Electromate offers Bogen IKS9 Magnetic Scale

Motion Control - Electromate-Logo

 

 

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Conponents–BOGEN develops and produces high-precision variable magnetic scales and measuring systems to measure angle, distance, position.

As the available space for position measurement is always tight, BOGEN has introduced a more compact version of the magnetic measuring head IKS9. In addition to the existing design style with an 11 mm wide body, the measuring head IIKS9. is now available in 9 mm width to be used in the most confined spaces. Despite reducing the package size, the IKS9. benefits remain the same – the highest accuracy for magnetic measurements with freely selectable resolutions. The IKS9. impresses customers in automation, instrumentation and motion control applications with an extremely high accuracy and a particularly high degree of modularity

BOGEN magnetic heads comply with the relevant national and international standards (ISO, DIN, IATA, ABA, etc.) and can be used with various magnetic coercivities. Special solutions for reading magnetic ink (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition: MICR) and for recognizing and validating banknotes are also a part of their product portfolio

BOGEN has been developing and producing magnetic heads for demanding applications since 1951. Their core competence is in the design and implementation of customer specific magnetic solutions for applications such as access control in multi-storey car parks, for the detection of credit card information in ATMs or magnetic sensors for the reliable validation of bank notes.”

Motion Control – Cooled Ball Screws from Steinmeyer!

Motion Control Components - Steinmeyer Cooled Ball Screws

Steinmeyer Logo

 

Steinmeyer Ball Screws are specially manufactured for dynamic performance

BURLINGTON, MA –Motion Control Components – When manufacturers use CNC milling machines or machine tools to serially manufacture parts, they expect gage accuracy to be maintained for all manufactured parts and, at the same time, a reduction in the machine’s total non-productive time. For the ball screw drive as a performing part in the power flow, this implies repetitive motion with high rapid traverse speeds and acceleration values. These high dynamic stresses cause unequal heating of the ball screw drive. Preloading increases this heating which seriously reduces the lifetime of the ball screw drive. The transfer of heat to other machine tool parts can adversely affect the accuracy of the work piece. These inaccuracies accumulate during the course of production, with very undesirable impact.

Separate consideration of shaft cooling

Gage accuracy with simultaneous high dynamic performance can only be maintained if operating temperatures are kept constant. It is not always the best solution to cool just one component in the ball screw. The non-uniform temperature rise in the components is accompanied by expansion in diverse directions. The shaft and nut cooling, as well as the type of preloading are separately considered in the initial design phase to ensure the options are correctly combined with the load requirements during the second stage of the design. As a longstanding development partner of renowned machine manufacturers, Steinmeyer offers production-proven solutions.

About Steinmeyer

Steinmeyer is the world’s longest continuously-operating manufacturer of commercial ball screws. In the realm of linear motion control, our company has become synonymous with precision, innovation, and exacting standards of quality.

Steinmeyer’s extensive product line is used widely in drive systems for industrial machines as well as precision positioning in optical instruments, medical devices, and other mechatronic applications. www.steinmeyer.com
