Product Announcement from H2W Technologies
A new series of low cost, high performance linear stepper motors has been introduced by H2W Technologies, Inc. Traveling at speeds up to 80 in/sec. [2 m/sec], with strokes to 144 in. [3.6 m], and acceleration to 1G, these 2 and 4 phase linear steppers are ideal for: Pick-and-place, wire bonder, parts transfer, semiconductor, and other robotic applications. Capable of up to 50 lbs. [222 N] of continuous force and 65 lbs. peak force [289 N] this new series of single axis linear steppers has the motor, bearings and positioning system integrated into a compact package.
H2W Technologies linear stepper motors are capable of very precise position, velocity and acceleration control when integrated with a microstepping drive and indexer. The resolution of the 2 phase motors is, one full step equals .010 in. [250 microns] and one microstep equals .00004 in. [1 micron], and the resolution of the 4 phase motors is, one full step equals .005 in. [125 microns] and one microstep equals .00002 in. [.5 microns]. Ideal for open loop positioning applications with light payloads a linear encoder can be integrated to provide a closed loop system.
- Low profile and small cross section
- High Speed
- Low cost positioning stage solution
- No servo tuning required ·Multiple forcers on a single plate
The step and direction signal from a microstepping driver is supplied to a moving, 2 or 4 phase "Forcer" [coil and magnet assembly] via a power cable. The ground "Platen" [track] is hard chrome plated and surfaced for use with roller bearings or air bearings. Various 2 & 4 phase "Forcers" can be integrated with "Platens" of varying widths from 1.25 in to 3 in. [31.8 mm to 76.2 mm] for precise sizing of an application. Linear steppers can also be custom designed to meet customer specifications and "platens" are available as bars, single piece tubes, and welded tube assemblies.
H2W Technologies is dedicated to the design and manufacture of linear and rotary motion products that are used in the motion control industry. The complete line of linear electric motors includes: single and dual axis linear steppers, DC brush and brushless linear motors, voice coil actuators, and AC induction motors. Also offered is a complete line of ball screw, lead screw and belt driven positioning stages.
Other motion control products include: limited angle torque motors for compact, limited angular excursion rotary servo applications, 3 phase brushless rotary servo motors with matching digital servo amplifiers and permanent magnet linear brakes for fail-safe, zero power braking for baggage handling and people moving applications as well as amusement park rides.
With over 75 years combined experience in the linear and rotary motion field, the H2W Technologies team of engineers offers the optimal solution to the most demanding motion control requirements.
