Kollmorgen introduces the next generation of stepper motors

Kollmorgen introduces the next generation of stepper motors, the PMX series, adding smaller 08, 11 and 14 frame sizes to the traditional 17, 23 and 34 frame size offering. Thanks to a wider range of sizes and options, OEMs now have added flexibility to meet multiple performance and application needs from a single motion source.

Pneumatic Step Motor is First Fully MRI-compatible Motor

Engineers at Johns Hopkins University are investigating the use of a robot (MrBot) that can operate within the closed bore of magnetic-resonance imaging (MRI) equipment to help physicians perform remote biopsies of tumors under MRI guidance. Researchers involved in the project say that MRI is ideal for this type of application because it is the

Selection Tips for Motors for Microscope Stages

Microscopes have been around since the 17th century. Since then, developments have increased the viewable area, the speed at which objects are located, and throughput. The microscope stage has been a major player in making these developments possible. Motorized versions have eliminated lateral stage drift, and enabled the gathering of sequential images of two or

Parker Introduces Improved Lead Times on Stepper Motors

(Rohnert Park, CA)— Parker’s Electromechanical Automation Division announces it isincreasing stock inventory and reducing lead times on select LV and HVstepper motors. Stock quantities of select motors have been dramaticallyincreased to offer competitive lead times on these high-performance,cost-effective motors. The LV (Low Voltage) series includes 11, 14, 17, 23 and 34 frame sizemotors, while the

A 42 mm Hybrid motor with attached drive electronics, yields a compact, RoHS compliant package. PRO Series hybrid stepper motors are precision designed for medical technologies and semiconductor manufacturing applications. They

Step Motor Automates Filter Changes

Tofra Inc., has provided microscope automation hardware and software since 1993. As with many applications, the amount of physical space available to accommodate a product continues to shrink. That’s one of the reasons Ilya Ravkin, president, turned to All Motion Inc. for his company’s new generation of products with built-in controllers. The new Focus Drive
