H2W Technologies Launch Miniature XY Brushless Linear Motor Positioning Gantry

Published on May 7, 2014 at 4:23 AM

H2W Technologies introduces a miniature XY brushless linear motor positioning gantry (SRS-002-007/003-003-01-XY), which is ideal for applications that require a low profile and more than 2 inches of stroke.

The stages are driven by brushless linear motors which are guided by precision recirculating linear ball bearing blocks and rails. Each axis incorporates 1 micron resolution linear encoders for position feedback.

The dual axis system can also be supplied with fully integrated electronics to operate the stage under synchronized dual axis closed loop motion control. Brushless linear motor driven positioning stage gantries are ideal for applications that require precise synchronized control of motion profiles for customer payloads.

The bottom axis has a 1.75 in [44.5 mm] stroke; and generates 5.1 lbs [22.6 N] of force at 100% duty and 20.4 lbs [90.4 N] of force at 10% duty. The top axis has a 2.75 in [70 mm] stroke; and generates 2.7 lbs [11.9 N] of force at 100% duty and 810.7 lbs [47.7 N] of force at 10% duty. The stage dimensions are 5.25 in [133 mm] x 5.25 in [133 mm] x 2.77 in [70 mm].

Features:

  • Compact size
  • Low profile
  • 2 axis motion control
  • Custom strokes, forces, and feedback resolution configurations available
