Moticont has introduced two high performance linear DC motor driven stages. The VCDS-051-032-01-B1-30 (pictured) and the VCDS-051-032-01-F1-30 linear voice coil stages feature high speed, high acceleration/deceleration, zero backlash, smooth motion, precise positioning of 30 microns, high reliability and low cost. These non-commutated stages are clean room friendly, quiet, and available off-the-shelf.
With a 0.97 in. (24.6 mm) travel length, a continuous force rating of 6.3 lbs (28.2N) and a peak force of 20.0 lbs (89.9 N) at a 10% duty cycle, these compact voice coil stages measuring just 2.000 in. (50.8 mm) wide by 5.000 in. (127.0 mm) long by 2.875 in. (73.0 mm) high, are ideal for applications such as: Positioning, assembly, laser cutting, welding and drilling, clamping, medical diagnostics and testing, and wafer handling.
Each of these linear voice coil stages features an optical quadrature encoder and home switch, and ball bearing linear guides. Easily accessible countersunk holes in the base allows for flexible and easy integration into new and existing applications. The 2.000 in. (50.4 mm) by 1.509 in. (38.3 mm) tables have a pattern of 8-32 UNC-2B threaded mounting holes for mounting tooling or fixtures.
If a longer travel, higher force, multi-axis configuration, or customized mounting are required, consult Moticont’s team of engineers. All of Moticont’s voice coil stages are available as complete plug-and-play systems, including: Position sensor, servo controller, amplifier, power supply, and an optional return spring.
