Zaber releases X-VSR-SV Series vacuum compatible vertical lift stages

  • Zaber Technologies

Four feedthrough wires are required to control all devices in the daisy-chain via serial port. These stages are vacuum compatible in high vacuum (10-6 Torr) or low vacuum (10-3 Torr).

igus introduces D3 dryve DC motor control system

  • igus, Inc.

For control and operation of the axes, igus’ D3 dryve now offers users a control system for simple movement. The D1 dryve is a control system for more complex tasks and allows a variety of tasks to be automated through a web-based interface.

Zaber introduces LSA-V Series of vacuum compatible miniature linear stages

  • Zaber Technologies

Zaber devices allow daisy-chaining in a vacuum chamber, decreasing cables and clutter. Only four feedthrough wires are required to control all devices in the daisy-chain via serial port.

H2W Technologies introduces VCS06-010-BS-01-MXY voice coil driven, XY positioning stage

The stage utilizes a custom low-profile design that utilizes an electromagnetic circuit design. The motor has a two-axis planar coil assembly that interacts with a common magnetic circuit.

Alliance Sensors Group releases LZ-19 Series linear position sensors

These LVITs are offered in nominal full scale ranges from 2.5 to 750 mm (0.1 to 30 inches) with stroke-to-body-length ratios such that the overall length for most sensors is 25 mm (1 inch) or less greater than the linear range of the unit.

Zaber releases X-RSW-SV Series vacuum compatible rotary stages with built-in controllers

  • Zaber Technologies

The integrated stepper motor controller and motor driver allows for control, and the worm gear allows for continuous rotation. Zaber devices allow daisy-chaining in a vacuum chamber.

Zaber introduces X-LSM-SV vacuum compatible linear stages

  • Zaber Technologies

The X-LSM-SV is designed with vacuum compatible materials to minimize outgassing and allow for faster pump down times. Zaber devices allow daisy-chaining in a vacuum chamber, decreasing cables and clutter.

  • AutomationDirect
  • AutomationDirect

IP65 Motors are available in single-shaft configurations and have a 1-ft. cable and locking connector. Extension cables with mating IP65 connector are available in 6, 10 and 20 ft lengths.

PI introduces A-351 MGS mechanical gantry system

  • PI Vision

The gantry is driven by linear motors and each axis is equipped with preloaded linear bearings. Applications include 3D printers, assembly, pick-and-place, alignment, inspection, and other industrial automation applications.

ABB introduces DCS880 DC variable speed drives

  • ABB

The DC VSDs are built on ABB’s all-compatible, common drive platform, sharing the same control panel, features and tools as recent- and future-generation ABB drives. Once users have learned one ABB all-compatible drive, they can use other all-compatible drives – both DC and AC.
