Aerotech, Pittsburgh, Penn., is offering the PRO LM series of high performance, versatile linear motor stages in four different series with 38 different models in travels from 100 mm to 1.5 m. The PRO165LM, PRO225LM, PRO280LM, and PRO560LM make up the Aerotech PRO LM series of linear motor stages.
They all feature a linear motion guide bearing system and high-performance brushless linear servomotor to make them useful in industrial applications such as laser machining, medical component manufacturing, and other applications requiring precise, smooth motion in a production environment.
Aerotech’s high-power, cog-free linear motors drive the PRO LM series. The non-magnetic forcer coil provides high force with zero cogging for ultra-smooth velocity and position control. This zero-cogging design is ideal for applications requiring outstanding contour accuracy and smooth velocity profiling. Aerotech’s linear motor stages have zero backlash and no windup. The magnetic field of the linear motor is self-contained within the U-channel design.
Noncontact linear encoders with micron-level repeatabilities are standard on all PRO LM series stages. Either a line-driver output or amplified sine-wave output encoder is available. The optional HALAR factory calibration further increases the standard accuracy and repeatability.
