Series of ironless linear motors in kit form

AUM series: brushless, ironless linear motors

The AUM series belongs to the ironless linear motors. Due to the use of ironless technology, the linear motor does not generate any cogging force, and in combination with its low weight, optimal synchronization as well as highest dynamics are achieved.

Typical applications and industries for ironless linear motors are high precision axes in combination with air bearings for optical systems as well as dynamic equipment used for example in microelectronics.

Features:

  • No cogging (zero cogging)
  • Patented coil design for highest force density
  • Low intrinsic mass for highest dynamics
  • No magnetic attraction for interference effects
  • Peak forces from 11.9N to 16,200N
  • Continuous forces from 3.0N to 2,340N
  • Applicable up to 330VDC
  • High thrust force
  • High motor constant
  • High efficiency

Low energy consumption

Applicable to:

  • Point-to-point positioning at micrometer/nanometer level
  • High/low speed applications with high speed ripple or motion profile requirements
  • Precise force control

Application areas:

  • Handling, testing, inspection and assembly of Wafers/LCD/PV/Batteries
  • Laser processing machines
  • Measuring and testing machines
  • Digital printing equipment
  • Metrology equipment
  • machines for DNA sequencing
  • other (bio)medical equipment

ACR: curved, ironless linear motors

The ACR series belongs to the series of ironless linear motors. The technology of ironless linear motors is characterized by no cogging force and low intrinsic mass, which achieves optimum synchronization and maximum dynamics. Characteristic of the ACR series is the curved design, it can be assembled either as a limited angle or 360° movement. Typical applications are rotary table applications with very low overall height and large hollow shaft.

Features:

  • No cogging force (zero cogging).
  • High force density
  • Low weight for highest dynamics
  • Large hollow shaft
  • High speed for low cycle time
  • Very flat design
  • Configurable angle of rotation by attaching several magnetic tracks
  • Flexible combination of several motors and magnetic tracks
  • Applicable up to 330VDC

Applicable to:

  • Point-to-point positioning at micrometer/nanometer level.
  • High/low speed applications with high speed ripple or motion profile requirements

Application areas:

  • Handling, testing, inspection and assembly of
  • Wafers/LCD/PV/Batteries
  • Metrology equipment
  • Laser processing machines
  • Measuring and testing machines
  • Digital printing equipment
  • other (bio)medical devices

Servoregelung von Linearmotoren bei Nanometeraufgaben

Bei Aufgaben wie z.B. Mikrometer- oder Nanometergenaue Positionierung, oder bei Aufgaben wie z.B. verfahren mit Kriechgeschwindigkeit (hohe Drehzahlkonstanz erforderlich trotz variablen Drehwiderstands der Mechanik) , ist Rastmomentfreiheit bei Linearmotoren ein Muss. Das reicht aber bei weitem nicht aus, um das Aufgabenziel zu erreichen. Weitere Voraussetzungen sind: ein hochaufgelöstes Wegmesssystem sowie ein Linearservoverstärker (d.h. nichttaktender Servoverstärker oder Servoregler oder Servoumrichter). Im Bereich der hochaufgelöstes Wegmesssysteme bieten wir optische Wegmesssysteme an. Eine Überblick derer können Sie unter diesem Link finden. Als linearer Servoverstärker bieten wir unser eigenes Produkt der LWM-Familie an. Mehr Informationen finden Sie unter diesem Link. Die meisten Servoverstärker sind taktend d.h. verwenden Pulsweitenmodulation (d.h. Zerhacken der Spannung) um den gewünschten Strom einzustellen. Das Takten führt jedoch zum Stromrippel (d.h. überlagerter Wechselstrom). Der Stromrippel wiederherum führt zu Kraftwelligkeit.

Genau diese Welligkeit macht es schwieriger, anspruchsvolle Servoaufgaben wie z.B. Mikrometer- oder Nanometergenaue Positionierung, oder bei Aufgaben wie z.B. verfahren mit Kriechgeschwindigkeit erfolgreich in Betrieb zu nehmen. Als letzter und vielleicht wichtigster Erfolgsfaktor zählt die Erfahrung eines Inbetriebnahmeingenieurs, der öfter solche komplexen Systeme in Betrieb genommen hat. MACCON bietet genau solche Ingenieurleistungen an. Wir haben in den Branchen Halbleiter, Optik, Laser sowie Weltraum vielen Kunden mit unserem Erfahrungsschatz zum Erfolg verholfen.
