Fast Linear Modules Provide High Precision with Direct Drive Linear Motors, for Industrial Automation

PI introduces two new collection of direct-drive linear modules, geared for machine builders and system integrators. The V-855 and V-857 product households had been designed for high-load and excessive responsibility cycle industrial precision movement purposes the place conventional actuators or linear slides with lead-screw or timing-belt drives should not exact, sturdy or dependable sufficient.

As a result of maintenance-free and friction free high-speed linear motors, better productiveness with shorter cycle occasions and quicker return on funding will be achieved. The brand new, ready-to-install linear motor modules are helpful for all high-performance purposes, the place positioning or scanning with clean, vibration free movement, minimal monitoring errors, and brief settling occasions are required.

Closed-Loop, Excessive Load, Lengthy Journey, and Speedy Acceleration with Quick Settling

The brand new closed-loop linear slide module / actuator product households present excessive load capability to 220 lbs (1000 N) and enormous journey ranges as much as 47” (1200 mm) with extremely repeatable minimal incremental movement of 100 nanometers! Place suggestions is by way of built-in linear encoders, out there all the way down to 1nm decision.

Acceleration is as fast as 5G’s and prime speeds of 196”/sec (5 m/sec) will be reached. Due to the play-free and backlash-free direct-drive mechanics, settling occasions are extraordinarily brief, and bidirectional repeatability is superb.

Multi-Axis Movement – Stacking of Two Linear Modules

For X-Y purposes, the V-855 and V-857 linear modules will be stacked orthogonally. For XYZ purposes, PI affords the V-817 stage household.

OEM and Industrial Precision Movement Functions

The V-855 and V-857 linear stage modules had been designed with industrial efficiency and affordability in thoughts, and ease of integration for machine builders and system integrators.

Excessive Efficiency Industrial EtherCAT-based Movement Controllers

PI supplies EtherCAT-based high-performance industrial movement controllers – as much as eight axes will be operated from one 19” rack and EtherCAT makes it very straightforward so as to add extra.

Utility Fields

Industrial precision automation for digital meeting of sensors, cameras, and optics. Metrology and non-contact inspection (X-ray and optical). Semiconductor wafer positioning, wafer processing and inspection. Automated laser micro-machining and welding, laser chopping, testing and sampling methods for medical gear.
