Motion Control – Closed-Loop Integrated Stepper Motors feature magnetic or absolute encoder feedback Available from Electromate!

Motion Control - Electromate offers JVL Closed Loop Integrated Steppers

Motion Control - Electromate-Logo

 

 

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Components — JVL presents a new innovative closed-loop stepper motor technology for its NEMA 23 & 34 integrated stepper motor range from 0,1 to 12 Nm. JVL, the European leader in the development of integrated servo and stepper motor technology, has now again developed a new and unique product in the field of integrated motor control.

New Innovative Technology

JVL closed-loop integrated stepper motors, QuickStep®, provide higher torque, faster acceleration, torque control, stall free operation and quieter movements than traditional step motor systems. QuickStep do this with greater efficiency and less motor heating because motor phase current are regulated up and down according to need. Performance of JVL closed-loop steppers are similar to servo motors, but with higher torque and often without need of gearbox, resulting in a more inexpensive solution. Design safety factors have always been high for stepper motors to ensure stall-free operation – now with QuickStep closed-loop control design can be very close to the limit resulting in even lower costs. QuickStep is a true closed-loop control system that compensates step angle errors during a movement and correct errors within a full step. If load becomes too high speed is lowered and position errors will always stay within two full-steps. Smart digital design and very high update rates (36 MHz) means there is no need of any manual adjustment or setup. It works like a perfect stepper motor benefitting from the servo motor technology.

Advantages compared to open loop stepper motors

  • Position feedback and control
  • Fast and easy commissioning. No tuning needed
  • No stalling. No step losses at all
  • Torque control
  • Much faster positioning and more cycles per second

Automation Motion Control – Closed-Loop Integrated Stepper Motors in size NEMA34

Birkerød, Denmark – Automation Motion Control – JVL presents a new innovative closed-loop stepper motor technology for its NEMA34 integrated stepper motor range from 3 to 12 Nm. JVL, the European leader in the development of integrated servo and stepper motor technology, has now again developed a new and unique product in the field of integrated motor control.

JVL closed-loop integrated stepper motors, QuickStep®, provide higher torque, faster acceleration, torque control, stall free operation and quieter movements than traditional step motor systems.

If load becomes too high speed is lowered and position errors will always stay within two full-steps. Smart digital design and very high update rates (36 MHz) means there is no need of any manual adjustment or setup. It works like a perfect stepper motor benefitting from the servo motor technology.
100% Automatic Setup No need to adjust any parameters. JVL closed-loop stepper motors always work fast and efficient to adapt motor to application. Extremely high update frequency: 36 MHz (where other suppliers have down to only 1 Hz update time). Calculations are made in FPGA and not in slow microprocessors.
Energy Saving Like servo motors QuickStep always runs at lowest possible current. This reduces the need for cooling and results in a more “green” solution.
Stall-Free Operation And No Losing Of Steps By always monitoring the actual rotor position, the control algorithm ensures that the motor does not lose any steps and it cannot stall. If the rotor is blocked mechanically it just continues right away when the obstruction is removed.
Torque Control Mode The torque can be adjusted “on the fly” by the user or by the motor’s embedded PLC program. Applications that were previously impossible for a stepper motor can now be achieved.
Higher Acceleration & Speed Stall-free operation means you do not need to worry about setting the motor to a very high acceleration ramp. The motor simply moves the load with the highest possible acceleration at any given time. The result is a much faster machine with more cycles per day.
Factory Loaded Linearization The motor and encoder are calibrated during factory production in order to reach a very high mechanical precision.
Older Motors Are Supported The Closed-loop control mode is backward compatible with older motors equipped with H2-type encoders. By updating the firmware, the user’s application can benefit from the stall-free operation with very high accelerations and lower power consumption.
Full Torque Available The motor is capable of using the full torque according to the torque-velocity curve and therefore the need to have a safety overhead when dimensioning the machine is much less. Smaller motor = lower costs.

Automation – Dual Axis Linear Motion Stepper Motors!

H2W Technologies Dual Axis Air Bearing Stepper Stage

H2W Logo

Santa Clarita, CA — Automation – Linear Motion — H2W Technologies’ dual axis linear motion stepper motors are ideal for open loop positioning applications requiring 2 axis of motion in a single plane. They can perform at speeds of up to 80 in/sec [2 m/sec] and strokes of up to 20 in x 30 in [0.5 m x 0.75 m]. Linear stepper motors are capable of very precise position, velocity, and acceleration control when coupled with a micro-stepping drive and indexer.

The moving assembly called the “forcer” is supported by magnetically preloaded air bearings that are imbedded in the active surface of the forcer. The bearings are designed to support the customer’s payload and to maintain the required 0.0005 in to 0.0010 in [12 to 25 micron] gap between the platen and the forcer.

The step and direction signal for each linear motion axis comes from two separate micro-stepping drives (2 or 4 phase). A 2 axis indexer is required to send step and direction signals to the drivers. For 2 phase motors, the full step is 0.010 in [250 microns] and for 4 phase motors the full step is 0.005 in [125 microns]. With micro-stepping, resolutions in the order of 0.5 to 1 micron are achievable.

The dual axis linear stepper motor is a complete 2 axis, single plane air bearing positioning system with the motor, the bearings, and the positioning system all built into one compact package. Integrating linear encoders with the stepper motor allows for a hybrid, closed loop positioning system.

Advantages:

  • Low profile and small cross section
  • High Speed
  • No servo tuning required
  • Multiple forcers on a single platen

Applications:

  • Pick and Place
  • Wire bonders
  • Parts transfer
  • Fiber optic
