  • Rotary Knife Cut-Off System
    of two conveyors, a transfer slide and lift/gripper mechanism similar to the diagram shown. Equip each conveyor and ball screw transfer mechanism with the Emerald Series SERCOS servo packages controlled by the EMC-2100 Emerald automation controller. Establish a communication link to the packaging
  • Stepper Linear Actuators Simplified
    What is a "linear actuator"? It is actually a simple stepper motor with a built-in leadscrew to directly convert rotary motion in form of discrete steps, into linear motion. Achieving linear motion internal to the motor eliminates the cost of designing a separate transmission mechanism
  • High-res moves
    Nanomotion motors work by generating ultrasonic standing waves. When motor elements are preloaded (compressed) against a bearing structure, the motor works as a friction drive, pushing a mass to produce linear, rotary, or spherical motion depending on the coupling mechanism. Many fields
  • Low Cost Automation Tutorial: The Flow of Low Cost Automation (LCA) Concept - 3 (The Flow of Mechanical LCA)
    An LCA element "Mechanical cam/link mechanism" appeared as schemes to repeatedly produce mass quantities of goods (Ford-ism) developed. This was an advancement from the first generation LCA elements of rotary to linear motion conversion to use as labor, and the advancement was based on the human
  • ATLANTA Rack & Pinion Drives Featured in Motion Systems Design Magazine Article
    The November 2011 issue of Motion Systems Design Magazine features ATLANTA Rack and Pinion Drives in an article titled "Separating Rack & Pinion Myths From Reality". Rack and pinion drives are an age-old mechanism widely used for converting rotary motion into linear motion. However, myths
  • Medical Device Link .
    Tubing cutter features variable feed rates Flexibility is one of the key characteristics of a rotary-blade tubing cutter. The WC600D unit from (Syracuse, NY, USA) is designed to cut flexible nylon-reinforced polyurethane and PVC hose, rubber hose, and other materials measuring between 12.7 and 28.5
  • Setting the stage for good machine design
    mechanism and so a thorough evaluation of these components is critical to project success. The application will define whether the positioning stage is linear, rotary, or incorporates a combination of stages into a multiaxis system. Even in fairly straightforward single-axis applications, there
  • Motor Technology: Tubular Linear Motors
    The tubular linear motor has only two components, the rod and the forcer. This simple configuration for providing linear thrust is used as the base for all motion solutions. Linear Electric Motors provide direct thrust for the positioning of a user's payload. They eliminate the need for a rotary
