StepSERVO motors take on labeling and packaging for food and beverage

StepSERVO closed loop integrated motors with the Step-Servo Quick Tuner software and built in Q Programmer are well suited for labeling and packaging for food and beverage applications. StepSERVO integrated motors provide closed loop servo control of position, velocity and torque using high torque step motors. The result is higher acceleration for faster machine cycles, and

Inside the lab with StepSERVO

Applied Motion Products investigated how closed loop step motor systems outperform traditional open loop step motors in terms of torque. To demonstrate that, Applied Motion Products used two equally sized step motors. On the one hand, researchers used a conventional motor that they’ll drive open loop with a basic microstepping drive. On the other hand, researchers used a StepSERVO closed loop integrated

Robotic arm for real-time MRI guidance

Fannin Innovation Studio, an early-stage life science commercialization firm, and the University of Houston have formed a startup company around the college’s robotic arm technology, which enables interventions using real-time MRI guidance. GuidaBot is developing a robotic, four-degree-of-freedom manipulator designed to work within the powerful magnetic field of an MRI, allowing physicians to perform interventions

Dunkermotoren Expands Portfolio of Brushless DC Servo Motors

Dunkermotoren continues to expand their portfolio of brushless DC Servo motors. A relative of the well established BG series, Dunkermotoren introduced their new, compact BG 32 servo motor, a 32 mm diameter motor with output power ranging from 10 to 20 Watts. Dunkermotoren has carefully matched the BG32 to various control electronics, encoders, brakes and

Sterilizable Drives from maxon motor

maxon motor launches two sterilizable drives for use with or without planetary gearheads in high speed medical applications of up to 90,000 rpm. The drives are characterized by their high nominal speed, extremely low-noise and low-vibration operation, marginal thermal emission and small size. The drives are identical and possess equal performance data and characteristics. 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

Direct Drive Rotary Servomotors

CARTRIDGE DDR direct drive rotary servomotors eliminate mechanical transmission parts. They use pre-engineered components, an integrated, factory-aligned high-resolution feedback device, and operate without bearings. They now come in five frame sizes from 4.25 in. square to 13.78 in. square with four stack lengths per frame. CE marked and UL listed for global application, the motors

Renewed Wind for Respirator Market

Sixteen mm Brushless Motors weigh 33 g and give 50 W of power to 60,000 rpm, with 39 dB operation. “With an average 3 dBA reduced noise level and 10% lower inertia, these 16 mm brushless motors represent the lightest weight, quietest and most energy efficient motors ever available from Portescap. They will maximize patient

CT Series Step Motors
