Motion Control – XYZ Voice Coil Positioning Stage from H2W Technologies!

H2W Technologies XYZ Voice Coil Positioning Stage

H2W Logo

Santa Clarita, CA —– Motion Control Components – H2W Technologies designed the VCS20-20-03-MC-01-XYZ as a 3-axis positioning solution where compact size and cost were important. Using voice coil motors, instead of 3-phase brushless linear motors, significantly reduced the overall size, weight, and cost of the system.

The VCS20-20-03-MC-01-XYZ is a closed loop voice coil driven XYZ positioning stage. It is ideal for three axis positioning applications. It uses H2W voice coil motors NCC20-18-020-1A (XY Horizontal Axis) and NCC03-15-050-2X (Vertical Z-Axis). The XY Horizontal Axis motors have a 2.00″ [50.8 mm] stroke; generate 2.0 lbs [8.9 N] of continuous force and 6.0 lbs [26.7 N] of peak force. The Vertical Z-Axis motor has a 0.25″ [6.4 mm] stroke; generates 5.0 lbs [22.3 N] of continuous force and 15.0 lbs [66.8 N] of peak force. The 1.0-micron resolution encoders allow for precise positioning. It comes supplied with precise linear bearings that allow for smooth and rigid motion. The motor coil is the moving part of the assembly in order to reduce the moving mass of the system. Power is supplied to the motor via a high flex, high reliability flat ribbon cable.

Features include:

  • Compact, small footprint positioning stage 
  • Light moving mass 
  • Three axes of coordinated motion

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

This new addition to Galil’s EtherCAT family is a pure EtherCAT controller with the ability to control up to 32 drives and 2 I/O modules. This space efficient package also provides uncommitted I/O for easy integration into any EtherCAT application.

The DMC-52xx0 is offered in 2, 4, 8, and 16 axis formats (32 axis coming soon). Coordinated moves can be done within banks of up to 8 axes allowing for minimal changes of Galil’s programming language. The DMC-52xx0 operates in Cyclic Synchronous Position mode (CSP). In this mode, the servo control loop is closed on the EtherCAT drive while the Galil controller sends motion profile commands at a rate of 1 kHz. Galil supports a host of EtherCAT devices for virtually any application. See the list below for more details.

Designed to solve complex motion problems, the DMC-52xx0 can be used for applications involving jogging, point-to-point positioning, position tracking, contouring, linear and circular interpolation, electronic gearing, ECAM and PVT. The DMC-52xx0 makes configuration and programming easy with just a handful of EtherCAT configuration commands and Galil’s intuitive, two-letter programming language.

The DMC-52xx0 comes with one Ethernet port for communication with a host PC and one EtherCAT port to communicate with EtherCAT drives. Multiple EtherCAT drives can be linked together in a daisy chain configuration and connected to the controller’s EtherCAT port, simplifying wiring and decreasing setup time. One USB port is also provided for alternative communication with a host PC. The DMC-52xx0 is packaged in a compact metal enclosure measuring 9.75” x 5.00” x 1.60” and is powered by a single 90-250 VAC supply.
