Motion Control – Integrated StepSERVO™ Motors Are Available from Electromate!

Automation – Integrated Step Motors fAutomation - Integrated Stepper Motors Available from Electromateuse step motor plus drive and control components into a single device. Integrated steppers offer a space-saving design that reduces wiring and saves on cost over separate motor and drive components.

Motion Control - Electromate-Logo

Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada — Automation motion control – Integrated Stepper Motors – Ideally suited for applications such as packaging and labeling, automated test and measurement, automated assembly and life sciences, StepSERVO™ motors from Applied Motion Products provide the next evolution integrated step motor technology. Starting with a proven integrated motor design, we add a high-resolution incremental encoder and closed-loop servo firmware to create a motor that offers the best step motor performance available today. StepSERVO™ motors offer the same high-torque-at-low-speed and excellent holding torque characteristics of open loop stepping motors with the advantages of true closed-loop control. These advantages include the ability to create peak torques from the motor up to 50% higher than the normal torque range of the same step motor running open loop. Closed-loop also means the motor only draws current when it needs it, so step motors now run cooler than ever before.

StepSERVO™ motors feature:

  • NEMA frame size 17, 23 and 24. StepSERVO motors utilize 5000 line incremental encoders (20,000 counts/rev)
  • NEMA frame size 11. StepSERVO motors utilize 1024 line incremental encoders (4,096 counts/rev)
  • Closed-loop servo control using high torque step motors
  • High acceleration for faster machine cycles and greater productivity

Motion Control – Application – 3-D Laser Scanner Uses JVL’s MAC Motors!

Motion Control Application –

Scantech´s newest portable 3-D scanner utilises 2 JVL MAC motors

Servos from JVL used in 3D Scanner

JVL Logo

Birkerød, Denmark and Morrow, OH (USA) — Motion Control Application – Laser scanning is used to measure an object by scanning it with a laser and digitalising the data. Using this information, it is possible to copy or modify the scanned object in various ways using Scantech´s CAD/CAM system CARSO. The scanner system is used for restoration work, scaling models, and creating industrial moulds. For example, it is possible to scan a marble figure that is deteriorating, and use the CAD/CAM system and a 3-D lathe to produce a true copy of the pristine original. It is thus possible to save a lot of manual work.

Servos from JVL used in 3D Scanner

Mounted directly on a CNC machine, Scantech´s 3D laser scanners make the CNC an effective copying machine. Scantech´s products are fully compatible with all modern CNC machines, and increase both the machine’s productivity and potential.

Typical applications are in the stone and wood carving industries, but also in the foam and footwear industries and in the manufacture for example of industrial moulds. The machines are sold directly to well-known machine manufacturers throughout the world.


Servos from JVL used in 3D Scanner

The new St 400 scanner is a portable scanner that can be used anywhere. For motion control in the x- and y axes, Scantech chose JVL´s MAC motor MAC140-A1 with MAC00-B1 modules, owing to their compact design with motor, encoder, driver, and controller integrated in the same unit. The 2 MAC motors are connected to the same RS485 interface and are controlled via serial commands from a PC. JVL´s Active X (OCX) is used as the driver between Scantech´s C++ software and the MAC motors.
