Direct drive modules increase throughput

Direct drive modules increase throughput
A new range of direct drive linear modules that integrate a linear motor, cable management, bearing rail and position sensor makes it easier for machine builders to build high throughput multi-axis systems rapidly and affordably. 

By taking care of the mechanical alignment and integrating a long life bearing rail for supporting the load, Copley Motion Systems aims to improve the accessibility of linear motors in single and multi-axis applications. The Copley ServoTube Module complements its ServoTube High Rigidity self-contained Z axis solution. Engineering time is reduced because the module is fully integrated. Copley say this also reduces risk and can improve time to market because, unlike in-house integration, the linear motion subsystem's characteristics and parameters are predetermined.

The ServoTube module combines the company's unique magnetic design and built-in position sensor to provide 350 micron position accuracy. Its industry standard 1V peak-peak sine/cosine output provides convenient feedback for many standard rotary servo motor drives. Using Copley Controls' own self-tuning Xenus and Accelnet servo amplifiers with its PC-based motion engineering tools, engineers can get off to a flying start with any application. Alternatively, popular drives from manufacturers such as Siemens, Parker, B&R are also supported.

The ServoTube module is available in two versions: an industrial drive with strokes up to 1323mm and peak forces 312-1860N and a compact version with shorter strokes of up to 825mm.
