Linear Motors

Whenever translational motions need to be performed dynamically, with low friction and high flexibility, users choose linear systems.The core of the LinMot drive system consists of the control electronics, the servo drive, and the linear motors.

LinMot motors are electromagnetic direct drives in tubular form. The linear motion is produced purely electrically and wear-free, without any intermediate coupling of mechanical gearboxes, spindles, or belts. The linear motor consists of just two parts: the slider and the stator. The slider is made of neodymium magnets that are mounted in a high-precision stainless steel tube. The stator contains the motor windings, bearings for the slider, position capture sensors, and a microprocessor circuit for monitoring the motor.

The internal position sensor measures and monitors the current position of the linear motor not only when it is stopped, but also during the motion. Deviations in position are detected immediately and reported to the upper-level controller. LinMot linear motors can be positioned freely within the entire range of the stroke. In addition, both the travel speed and the acceleration can be controlled precisely. For more complex motions, arbitrary travel profiles can be saved as curves in the servo drive and executed by the motor at the desired speed.

  • Can be positioned freely
  • Extremely dynamic
  • Long service life
  • Adjustable speed
  • Monitored motions
  • Adjustable acceleration
  • Gentle motions
  • Programmable force
  • Can be synchronized

Speeds of up to 7.3 m/s and accelerations of over 780 m/s2 allow very short positioning times and high cycle rates

The design of the linear motors makes them standard elements in the field of machine design, where they are commonly used to replace pneumatic drives and mechanical cam discs. With LinMot linear motors and simple guides, the engineer has all the components needed to design complete linear drive systems.
