Animatics releases Harmonic Linear actuator
Santa Clara, California - Animatics released the Harmonic Linear Drive Series (HLD), an innovative linear belt drive solution providing high accuracy and low cost without the need for a gearhead or brake. Instead of using a fixed belt to move the load, the HLD uses a recirculating belt, folded back upon itself and routed over subtly different diameter pulleys yielding gear reduction by way of the Harmonic Drive Principle, without the cost or backlash of a separate gearhead. This technique is so revolutionary, it has patents applied for in more than 30 countries.

The system has a low price to performance ratio. It is priced to attract large quantity OEM buyers as well as the smaller cost conscious System Integrators and stands to be the most cost effective alternative to mid to long stroke ball screw actuators available.

The HLD is available in standard stroke lengths from 100mm to 3200mm and equivalent pitch ratios from 2.5mm/rev to 12.5mm/rev. Custom strokes are available. These fully integrated units are shipped with the patented Animatics SmartMotor technology to provide an all-in-one Closed-Loop Brushless Servo Motor, Drive Amplifier, Optical Encoder, I/O, Field bus option, belt actuator and bearing support.

The HLD60 produces standard thrust up to 450 Newtons, with an average moment loading of up to 150Nm. Each unit provides a near Zero Backlash solution with bidirectional repeatability approaching 60um and unidirectional repeatability of less than 20um.

OEM Dynamics Linear Systems are manufactured, tested and shipped in one integrated assembly. They are available in several bearing load configurations including Internal Roller, and single or twin external profile rails. Fieldbus Options include Profibus, DeviceNet, CANopen, and Ethernet.
