motion control - electromate logoVaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Components — Bishop-Wisecarver invented the DualVee® guide wheel over 50 years ago in four sizes of carbon steel as a component-based problem solver for harsh, debris-laden environments. It’s 2019. They now offer product options that include UtiliTrak® linear guides, LoPro® linear actuators to complete actuated system solutions.

LoPro® Linear Actuators excel in high speed, long length and dirty environments. UtiliTrak® is constructed with DualVee Motion Technology® in vee and vee/crown designs, and using MadeWell® Crown Rollers, and are perfect for commercial applications in need of a compact, easy-to-install, and low maintenance solution.

Automation – World’s Smallest Commercially Available Ball Screw!

 

Steinmeyer Offers Worlds Smallest Commerically Available Ball Screw

Steinmeyer  Logo

BURLINGTON, MA – Automation -Steinmeyer, Inc. offers the “world’s smallest commercially available ball screw.” These ULTRAMINIATURE ball screws are available in diameters as small as 3 millimeter with a choice of two pitches – 1 millimeter or 0.5 millimeter, making this product ideal for medical applications, among others. Steinmeyer offers an extensive range of miniature screws from 16 mm diameter (with up to 30 mm pitch), down to this incredibly tiny 3 mm diameter. The ball screws are equipped with one of four types of ball nuts (cylindrical, flange, etc.), with or without preload. And, as with all other Steinmeyer ball screws, custom lengths are available with journals machined to a control drawing.

These Ultraminiature motion control ball screws are manufactured from standard tool steel (52100), hardened and then precision ground to meet ISO tolerances from P0 to P5. Stainless steel material is available as an option. Such high efficiency ball screws provide the perfect precision linear drive mechanism for a wide variety of medical devices. Because ball screws offer significantly higher efficiency compared to lead screws, they require smaller and thus lower power motors. This not only saves battery life on portable devices, but the high efficiency also means lower heating and much longer life. And they are capable of being back driven, an important prerequisite when it comes to tactile systems. The higher the efficiency, the better the force feedback!

The Steinmeyer group is comprised of two manufacturing divisions located in Germany. August Steinmeyer GmbH & Co. KG (located in Albstadt) has been setting standards for high precision ball screws for over 40 years and prides itself on high quality, innovative designs to meet demanding customer requirements. Our Feinmess Dresden (FMD) division has been producing an extensive line of high precision positioning systems for well over 130 years.

Motion Control – Miniature DC Servo Motor Controller, The ESCON 50/5 OEM Module!

Motion Control – Maxon Precision Motor’s newly released DC servo motor controller, the ESCON 50/5 OEM module. This mini OEM plug in module is a 4 quadrant Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) servo motor controller that can efficiently control permanent magnet brushed DC motors (PMDC motors) and Brushless DC servo motors (BLDC motors) containing hall effect sensors, with power levels up to 250 watts.

Maxon Logo

Fall River, MA — Motion Control – The OEM module features exceptional motor control properties and also contains very fast digital current control bandwidth capabilities enabling peak DC motor current (and therefore torque) control. Speed control of DC motors is devoid from drift whilst remaining dynamic. The DC motor speed can be controlled from 0 rpm up to 150,000 rpm. A completely configurable broad range of functions can be set to operate form the onboard analogue and digital inputs.

The motion control DC motor speed can be set for open or closed loop with preset current/torque levels or the motor torque and direction can be set with analogue inputs. The inputs can be scaled and midpoints independently set with the “Easy to use Servo Controllers” PC Graphical User Interface (GUI) allowing fast implementation integrated into difficult motor control applications. Detailed design guides are supplied allowing easy integration onto the main equipment PCB. There is also an evaluation board for easy initial test and measurement.

This DC servo motor controller can also be used with an external potentiometer or the integrated on board potentiometer. For applications with existing PWM signals available this can also be used as a set value input. Full 4 quadrant control can be achieved with brushless motors using only hall sensors. A DC tacho or encoder can be optionally used with the DC motor for tighter feedback loops and digital inputs can be switched for activation in a particular motor direction of rotation.

Protection features are inbuilt on the motor controller against overcurrent, overtemp, undervoltage and overvoltage. Transients and short-circuits on the motor are also covered. The maximum allowable motor currents can be configured easily on the USB connection with the PC GUI.

When combined together, the maxon DCX, GPX and ENX form a high-precision, robust drive system ideal for any application from aerospace to medical to robotics. In fact anywhere that requires a compact, powerful, quiet and strong drive system. With just a few clicks of the mouse, it is possible to configure a powerful DCX drive with reliable and a fast delivery. In addition, detailed product data may be viewed immediately online and 3D CAD data for the configuration is available for downloading.

The small sized electronic motor controller has a 98% efficiency and can be used on common 12V, 24V and 48V DC systems making it suitable for process control, robotic and manufacturing equipment applications.

Comprehensive documentation and software are included with every motion control component delivery, and are also available for you to download from our website at www.maxonmotor.com.
