April 5, 2018 - Applied Motion Products introduced a closed-loop linear actuator the TBSM11 Linear Actuator. These actuators are designed for throughput processes that require linear actuators to start and stop quickly.
Based on Applied Motion Products’ StepSERVO Integrated Motor technology, the TBSM11 Linear Actuator features a ball screw shaft and nut assembly instead of a motor shaft. Ball screws and lead screws are available in a range of leads and stroke lengths to meet custom requirements.
The TBSM11 Linear Actuator provides more than 20 lb. of thrust force with position resolution of 0.005 mm per full step. With fully programmable, on-board motion control using Applied Motion Products’ Q Programming language, the TBSM11 Linear Actuators operate as stand-alone axes with motion profiles stored in non-volatile memory. Q Programming incorporates commands for various kinds of motion, I/O control and sequencing, and math functions that enable users to create all kinds of motion control sequences and algorithms. RS-485 ports enable network connections for multiple axes.
Units are desgned for use in a variety of automation tasks in electronics assembly, medical packaging, and test and measurement as well as in applications requiring accurate positioning such as feeding, pick-and- place and axis setup.
