H2W Logo

Santa Clarita, CA —– Motion Control – H2W introduces its most compact moving magnet actuator with a hole through the shaft. The voice coil actuator (NCM01-04-001-2IBH) can be operated under either open or closed loop position control and is ideal for controlled sinusoidal motion applications (1 to 1000 Hz for open loop applications and 1 to 125 Hz for closed loop applications). The NCM moving magnet type linear actuator has a precision ground 0.125” diameter shaft that is guided by precision manufactured high cycle low-wear plastic bushings. The shaft has a 0.059” hole that goes through the shaft which is ideal for routing a fiber optic cable, passing light through, or routing an air hose for vacuum or pressurized air.

The moving magnet voice coil has a 0.10″ [2.5 mm] stroke, generates 0.1 lbs [0.5 N] of continuous force and 0.3 lbs [1.3 N] of peak force. The actuator is driven in open loop mode by feeding a sinusoidal control signal into a servo amplifier which is in turn connected to the two leads of the actuator. The actuator can also be operated as a closed loop system by adding a programmable motion control and position feedback device.

Features:

  • High frequency operation
  • High acceleration
  • Compact size
  • Custom strokes and force configurations available

Motion Control – Miniature Voice Coil Actuators from H2W Technologies, Inc.

Linear Motion Miniature Voice Coil Actuators

Linear Motion - H2W Logo

Santa Clarita, CA — Linear Motion Actuators — H2W Technologies offers miniature versions of both our moving coil and moving magnet voice coil actuators. Additionally, we offer custom designed solutions to meet your application specifications.

H2W has built its smallest moving magnet voice coil actuator (NCM01-04-001-2IB)to date, with an outside diameter of 0.40 in [10 mm] and a length of 0.735 in [18.8 mm]. It has a stroke of 0.10 in [2.5 mm] and generates a continuous force of 0.10 lbs [0.45 N] and a peak force of 0.30 lbs [1.35 N]. It weighs just 0.20 ounces [5.7 grams]. This actuator utilizes a hardened shaft and sliding contact bushing to ensure long life, and is ideal for oscillatory motion. The compact design allows the actuator to be used in a number of handheld applications. Moving magnet voice coil actuators have built-in bearings so there is no need for the customer to add mass or complexity to their motion system to integrate a bearing, and there are no moving leads to worry about cable management.

Our smallest moving coil voice coil actuator (NCC01-04-001-1X) has an outside diameter of 0.44 in [11.1 mm] and a length of 0.36 in [9 mm]. It has a stroke of 0.13 in [3.2 mm] and generates a continuous force of 0.06 lbs [0.27 N] and a peak force of 0.18 lbs [0.8 N]. It weighs just 0.20 ounces [5.7 grams]. The bobbin has been constructed of plastic to prevent any damping forces that a metallic bobbin would create. The compact design allows the actuator to be used in a number of handheld applications.

H2W Technologies Releases Highest Force Moving Magnet Voice Coil Actuator!

H2W Tech Motion Control High Power Moving Magnet Voice Coil Motor

H2W Logo

Santa Clarita, CA — H2W Tech introduces its highest force (135 lbs, [600 N] peak force) moving magnet actuator. This NCM series voice coil actuator (NCM08-35-450-3LB) can be operated under either open or closed loop position control, or force control and is ideal for high force motion control applications. This moving magnet type linear actuator incorporates high energy product neodymium magnets in conjunction with a precision layer wound winding to obtain maximum motor efficiency. It has a precision ground 0.500 in diameter hardened steel shaft that is guided by two recirculating linear ball bushings (sliding contact bushings are available for high acceleration and high frequency oscillatory applications). An optional hollow shaft is available for routing a fiber optic cable, passing light through, or routing an air hose for vacuum or pressurized air.

The NCM08-35-450-3LB moving magnet voice coil has a 0.750 in [19 mm] stroke, generates 45 lbs [200 N] of continuous force and 145 lbs [600 N] of peak force. The actuator can be driven in open loop force mode by feeding a control signal into a DC linear or brush type servo amplifier which is in turn connected to the two leads of the actuator. The actuator can also be operated as a closed loop positioning system by adding a programmable motion controller and a position feedback device.

Features:

  • High force and acceleration
  • Built in linear bearing system
  • Compact size
  • Custom strokes and force configurations available

Lower Cost Motion Control Moving Magnet Designs from H2W Technologies!

Santa Clarita, CA —– Typically a Motion Control H2W Moving Magnet Actuator has precision bushings and shaft which cause the moving magnet design to be cost prohibitive. However not every customer requires a bushing with high tolerance precision, and thus H2W has the ability to modify the linear bearing systems of our voice coil designs to accommodate a lower cost bushing and shaft. The pictured actuator has a custom shaft and housing to accommodate a customer’s specific cost, envelope, and shaft requirements

Voice Coil Actuators are typically for applications requiring short strokes, however, H2W offers varying strokes from their stock actuators and can modify any of these models with a short lead time to accommodate many specification modifications. Additionally, typically voice coil actuators have been intended for low force applications, however H2W Technologies offers forces up to and exceeding 100 pounds of continuous force and 300 pounds of peak force at 10% Duty Cycle.

The moving magnet style actuator is provided with supplied internal bushings and a hardened steel shaft or hard anodized aluminum shaft. H2W currently stocks actuators up to 3 inches of stroke, and has built moving magnet actuators with a stroke as long as 5 inches, and up to 12 inches can be built upon request.

The NCM10-14-028-2BX is an example of one our lower cost moving magnet motor designs. – Click here for additional information.
