For Example …

Linear Stage with Foldback Drivemotion control linear stage

Drive relocated to the rear

The task of this customer-specific OEM development was to create a travel path of 150 mm in 250 mm installation space, in which the load is wider than long. The available installation space had to be completely filled with an aluminum base body in order to achieve the necessary rigidity.

Integrated ball screw with synchronous belt

The ball screw was integrated between the base body and the moving carriage plate. It was also moved downwards via a pair of synchronized pulleys with synchronous belts. The transmission error of this additional transmission element could be minimized by optimally adjusting the pre-stress, thereby resulting in only a slight increase in repeatability errors. A compromise also had to be reached on the guiding system with regard to the guiding relationship. The lateral distance between the carriages had to be greater than the distance between the carriages in the direction of travel. Less stringent requirements for straightness made that acceptable.

Motion Control – Custom Linear Mechanisms

Custom Linear Mechanisms from Steinmeyer …

Welcome to Where Precision Is.  You Can Turn to Steinmeyer for Design and Assembly of Custom Linear Mechanisms for your Precision Positioning Systems
Modern mechatronic systems consist of numerous precision components that must be assembled in complex configurations. Here, every detail counts.Steinmeyer Mechatronik, a division of August Steinmeyer GmbH, offers design and assembly services for a variety of demanding applications.We have deep experience in medical devices, laboratory instrumentation, optical inspection & semiconductor positioning.

Motorized Aperture Stage

Highest precision and compact design

The aperture control is used to adjust a pass-through window for a power laser and makes it possible to confine a laser beam to any rectangular format. The pass-through window is formed by means of four individual apertures, which are positioned by two drives. The height and width of the window can be adjusted almost infinitely from fully closed up to a size of 25 x 25 mm (maximum open); the smallest adjustment step is 50 nm. The beam center is fixed and cannot be changed.

Driven by DC motor and precision spindle with belt deflection

Since the pairs of individual apertures must be moved synchronously to adjust the pass-through window, two individual apertures each are moved by one spindle. The aperture control is driven by a DC motor and a precision spindle with belt deflection – a design with advantages: Owing to right-hand and left-hand threads on one spindle, two counter-rotating movements can be generated with one motor. In addition, the flat design requires only a short installation length in the optical beam path. Since the pairs of individual apertures must be moved synchronously to adjust the pass-through window, two individual apertures each are moved by one spindle. In this process, the parallelism of the apertures that are arranged on opposite sides deviates only by a maximum of 10 µm.

FDA/USDA and 3A-Dairy Compliance Brochure features Linear Motion Components from LM76!

LM76

E. Longmeadow, MA — Motion Control Components – Linear Motion – Food processing and beverage plants’ wash down areas are unique environments that undergo harsh treatment from high pressure washers, steam, and a multitude of caustic chemicals used in the cleaning and sanitizing production equipment. OEMs and maintenance departments need to select components that will not trap contaminating debris and can be thoroughly evacuated following Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures (SSOPs). SSOPs are detailed schedules and procedures specifying what to clean, how to clean, how often to clean, and the record keeping used for monitoring.

A helpful component selection guide from LM76, “Linear Bearings, 6 Simple Steps – FDA Compliance, Wash Down Compliance,” details the linear motion components available from LM76 that are FDA/UDSA/3A-Dairy compliant. Included are: Foodstream electrodeless nickel plated pillow blocks, PTFE lined stainless steel bearings, ceramic coated linear bearings, self-aligning corrosion resistant linear ball bearings, and Thomson® Super SmartTM corrosion resistant, self-aligning, high load linear ball bearings. Shafting to compliment the type of bearing selected includes: Class L Stainless 303/304/316, 440C case hardened stainless, Rc 60 case hardened steel with an Armoloy coating and also Rc78 Class L for enhanced hardness and wear resistance. End blocks and shaft supports that have a ceramic or electrodeless nickel coating are also available, as well as new ETX Scraper Seals that prevents intrusion of contaminates adding another line of defense.

LM76 also designs and custom builds linear slides from Stainless Steel and other FDA wash down compliant materials

Shafting options include: Solid and hollow Class L RC60, 300 series stainless steel in lengths to 12 feet. FDA/USDA/3A-Dairy compliant, shafting features: Excellent corrosion and chemical resistance, custom machining to print, pre-drilling and assembly.

Highly Stiff Linear Axis for Optics

Construction of a flying telescope

The Max Planck Institute has built a helium-balloon borne telescope in the Sunrise project. This telescope hung from the balloon by means of a rope and ascended to heights of up to 24000m. The atmosphere is very thin at this altitude, and the conditions are similar to those in space. Such a balloon mission, however, costs only a fraction of a rocket launch with a conventional satellite, and represents an interesting alternative to space travel. Since the telescope hangs only on a rope, it bends due to gravity. Spherical mirrors were used, so that the bend of the optics could be compensated by simply shifting the optical components. The correction movements were achieved by the positioning systems shown here.

System with short strokes and excenter drive

The so-called M3 mechanism adjusts the tertiary mirror in the longitudinal direction and consists of a conventional carriage system and ball screw drive. For the M2 positioning system, which adjusts the secondary mirror in three translational degrees of freedom, a very short-stroke system based on an excenter drive was developed. Both positioning systems are driven by high-transmission miniature stepper motors with additional encoder feedback.

For Example …Motion Control Linear Stage

Demanding series production for a medical instrument

The task was to develop a motion unit for a computer tomography scanner which moves tungsten collimators during X-ray source rotation so that the X-ray beam can be adjusted to the minimum radiation dose required. The assembly itself is continuously moved in a circular path around the patient during use. A special challenge was the high acceleration caused by the rotation on a large diameter transverse to the direction of movement. This additional load requires a particularly stable construction with minimal potential for error.

Highest stability and reliability

Since this is used in a durable medical device, the requirements for functional safety and reliability are very high. The positioning system has been tested for three million application cycles and has proven this claim with statistical certainty in an endurance test.
