Compact linear motors get direct to the point

Compact linear motors get direct to the point

A compact new direct drive linear motor combines a slim form factor with high speed and 25g acceleration. Copley Motion Systems says its STB11 motors provide ten times the speed and ten times the life of ballscrew actuators making them ideal for boosting productivity in high speed point-to-point positioning applications.


STB11-based positioning stages have the same form-factor as ballscrew linear drives, enabling an easy migration to next-generation performance. The motor's integral solid-state position


sensor eliminates the expensive and delicate external encoder traditionally required in linear motor systems, making it rugged for applications requiring up to an IP67 rating. The elimination of external encoders also simplifies integration compared to traditional linear drive technologies.
