March 16, 2020 - Moticont has added two miniature linear voice coil motors to its LVCM family of Linear Voice Coil Motors. Sharing the same physical dimensions, each is 1.000 in. (25.4 mm) in diameter and the housings are 1.500 in. (38.1 mm) long. As every application is different Moticont offers two motor in the LVCM-025 Series of Voice Coil Motors. The LVCM-025-038-01 features a continuous force of 2.5 lbs (11.0 N) and a peak force of 7.8 lbs (34.7 N) and the LVCM-025-038-02 features a 1.000 in (25.4 mm) stroke, whereas, the LVCM-025-038-01 features a stroke of 0.37 in. (9.5 mm ) and the LVCM-025-038-02 features a continuous force of 16.4 oz (4.6 N) and a peak force of 51.9 oz (14.4 N).
Whether it is a longer stroke or a higher force that is required for an application, each of these clean, miniature brushless DC servo motors has acceleration / deceleration, low inertia, and zero cogging, making them suitable for: Assembly, sorting, laser machining and drilling, haptic feed back, packaging, sampling, work holding and clamping, scanning, laser beam steering and filtering, wafer handling, and medical and pharmaceutical applications.
Both the LVCM-025-038-01 and the LVCM-025-038-02 feature very high accuracy and repeatability when operated as a DC servo motor in a closed servo loop. Each linear motor also features a 10-32 UNC-2B threaded mounting hole in the housing and two 6-32 UNC-2B threaded mounting holes in the coil end on 0.50 in. (25.4 mm) centers for integration into new and existing applications. A complete plug-and-play system including an encoder and servo controller is also available.
If there a need for a still smaller or larger diameter motor, one with longer travel, or more force? There are 12 choices in this family of Moticont's LVCM linear motors based on diameter of the motor, and over 50 models based on length of stroke and/or force to select from.
