Motion Control Application – Open Screw Drive System Moves Heavy Sound Stage Sets Smoothly, Quickly, and Quietley!

Motion Control Application – High Speed Drive System

Problem: Move heavy sets on a sound stage smoothly, quickly, and most importantly quietly! Ball screws specified in the original design proved unacceptable due to the limited length of travel, screw deflection which resulted in a lack of smoothness, and high noise levels. A rack and pinion was also considered but the noise level was also too high and there was no room for a gearbox. Linear motors are quiet however the cost was prohibitive, and a belt system could not handle the heavy loads.

Solution: The new Streamliner Open Screw Drive System from Winner was selected by the production company to move the heavy sets on the sound stage.

Non-linearity is <±0.5% throughout the stages 5 mm range of motion. PVS-5.5 Parallelogram Voice Coil Stage is ideal for optical focusing and micropositioning applications such as: Semiconductor, medical, optical testing, scanning microscopy, circuit board assembly, and micro manufacturing.


The PVS-5.5 Parallelogram Voice Coil Stage features a high force, frictionless voice coil motor and infinite life flexure system that provides superior responsiveness and accuracy (positioning resolution 75 nm) over conventional leadscrew or belt drives and produces the least amount of electrical noise of any motor currently available. The stage can be mounted in a horizontal or vertical position and for easy integration tapped and clearance holes are provided in the base.

Motion Control – Voice Coil Motor with Internal Shaft and Bearing Features 63.9 lbs of Continuous Force!

Motion Control – Voice Coil Motor

 

MotiCont-Logo

Van Nuys, CA – Motion Control Components – Moticont has added a new high force voice coil motor to its GVCM family of voice coil motors with an internal shaft and bearing. The new GVCM-095-089-03 Linear Voice Coil Motor (also known as linear DC motor) features a continuous force of 63.9 lbs (284.1 N) and 202.0 lbs (898.4 N) of peak force at a 10% duty cycle. Guided by a long-life plain bearing that can allow side loads up to 3 lb (13.5 N), the precision ground 0.236 inch (6.0 mm) diameter shaft with an internal thread has a stroke length of 0.5 in. (12.7 mm). The quiet, efficient, smooth, cog-free motion of this low inertia brushless GVCM-095-089-03 Linear Voice Coil Motor is ideal for: Clamping, work holding, sorting equipment, assembly, medical devices, antenna positioning, testing, slide actuators, shutters, doors, valve actuation, wafer handling, and optical focusing.

This new voice coil actuator features: High speed, high acceleration/deceleration, zero backlash, high accuracy, high repeatability, and a high force to size in either direction, in a housing measuring just 3.75 in. (95.3 mm) dia. x 3.5 in. (88.9 mm) long. The housing and coil ends of the motor have threaded mounting holes in the housing and coil ends for easy integration into new and existing applications.

Is there a need for a smaller or larger diameter motor, one with longer stroke, or more force? There are currently 7 series of Moticont’s expanding line of GVCM motors based on diameter of the motor, and models based on length of stroke and/or force to select from with additional motors being added to select from.
