  1. Zero-Backlash Servo Rotary Indexing Table from Sankyo Automation

    The Sankyo Automation RollerDrive® Reducer is a precision gear reducer that uses a zero backlash roller gear mechanism. The unit is constructed from an input shaft and a turret (output shaft) that is assembled with roller followers. The roller followers are preloaded against a screw-like input shaft to eliminate backlash.High Speed Indexer
    Sankyo servo indexing tables offer a constant lead cam with a servo motor drive for programmable motion. Sankyo servo indexing tables provide fast highly accurate motion, with the added capability to move medium to heavy loads. The preloaded cam & turret provides a high performance zero-backlash servo indexing table for all your automation needs.

  2. High Performance Servo Gearbox is ideal for Cyclic or Continuous High Speed Applications

    The SPH inline planetary gearbox is GAM’s latest solution for today’s demanding motion control challenges. With helical gears, the SPH is designed for dynamic and cyclic applications and can also be optimized for high speed and continuous duty applications.

    GAM SPH SERVO GEARBOX

    It is available in six frame sizes with nominal torque ratings from 15 to up to 900Nm. The SPH features precision cut helical gears that are ground for smoothness, quiet operation, and high accuracies.  The face width of the SPH gears are up to 70% longer than the gears in comparable gearboxes on the market, which means more tooth contact and greater overall torque density.  To carry the higher torques, SPH gears

  6. New 52mm Brushless DC (BLDC) motor design

    Maxon motors new optimisation of the High Torque 52mm brushless motor gives even greater performance.

    Maxon EC-i 52mm BLDC Servo Motor

    Maxon EC-i 52mm BLDC Servo Motor


    The EC-i 52mm brushless DC motor from maxon has had the iron-wound internal rotor motor redesigned from 7 pole pairs to 8 pole pairs. This significantly reduces the vibration and noise output of the DC motor. Available in three voltage outputs, 18, 24 and 48V the 52mm 180 W brushless DC motors produce up to 6,000 rpm.
    With a correspondingly optimised magnet ring, the brushless EC-i motors with iron windings offer a very high torque density and a low cogging torque.

  8. New DMC-3x014-Box 1-Axis Controller box w/ internal 20W linear brushless servo drive w/ sine commutation

    Galil DMC-30014Galil is introducing a new single axis linear drive package: the DMC-3×014. The new DMC-3×014 contains a 20W linear brushless servo drive with sinusoidal commutation. The transconductance linear amplifier has an operating gain of 0.2 A/V, with a current loop bandwidth of 4 kHz. The amplifier can drive brushless motors and voice coil motors operating at up to 1 Amp continuous, and 2 Amp peak at 15-40 VDC.
    Trapezoidal commutation can have discontinuities and produce a torque ripple. This is because the torque characteristics of the motor are only taken into account in six zones. With sinusoidal commutation, the torque characteristics of the motor are mapped to all positions, resulting

  9. Application Note: Advantages of coupling of linear motors

    Does your machine need a power upgrade or do you want to expand an existing design?  Coupling two linear motors is an easy and effective way of increasing the available force.  Herewith you are not just limited to using identical motors.  Various combinations can be made, as long as the motor force constant is the same.  This Application Note discusses some details of a ‘coupled application’.
    Advantages of technical solutions like a coupling of motors are usually highly case-specific.  Are you thinking about a solution with either one large motor or a couple of smaller ones?  We have listed some common benefits.
