New Formulae Handbook for Drive Technology

Maxon Formula Handbook

Maxon Formula Handbook

maxon motor provides effective help for drive selection.

The extensive collection with illustrations and descriptions includes formulae, terminology and explanations of the calculations that are relevant for drive systems.  A flow chart provides assistance in selecting the right drive for each purpose.

The Formulae Handbook lists the most important formulae in relation to all components of the drive system.  It makes use of a flow chart that supports quick selection of the correct drive.  Numerous illustrations and the clear descriptions of the symbols on the respective page make it easier for the reader to understand the formulae.

Roughly speaking, it is a collection of the most important formulae from the maxon catalog, as well as from the book “The selection of high-precision microdrives”, published by maxon academy.  The author of the book, Dr. Urs Kafader, Head of the maxon academy, gave the initiative to compile the Formulae Handbook to Jan Braun, technical instructor at the maxon academy.  The book “The selection of high-precision microdrives” contains extensive know-how from the 50-year long success story of maxon DC drives with low power (below approx. 500 W).  The new Formulae Handbook is intended for engineers, lecturers and students, as a perfect supplement to the above-mentioned book.

The Formulae Handbook consists of 58 pages in A5 format and is available free of charge in German and English.  © 2012 by maxon motor AG

GAM Introduces New SPH Helical Gearbox

GAM SPH Gearbox

GAM SPH Gearbox

Mount Prospect, IL – July 10, 2012 –  GAM Gear introduces the SPH series inline planetary gearbox.  Featuring helical gearing, the SPH brings a new level of power and precision to an extensive portfolio of gear technology which includes hypoid, spiral bevel, spur, and worm.

The SPH is designed specifically for dynamic and cyclic motion control applications and can be optimized for high speed and continuous duty applications as well.  The SPH gears are cut at an ideal angle to help reduce axial forces that are traditionally associated with helical gearing and then ground for reduced noise levels and improved smoothness and accuracy.  The gear teeth are also wider which allows for larger permissible torques relative to the frame size and heavy duty taper roller bearings enable large loading capabilities.

 
GAM SPH Gearbox

“Our customers have been looking for a high precision gearbox that can help maximize their machine performance,” said Craig van den Avont, President of GAM Gear.  “Helical gearing is a necessity as these applications require a combination of high accuracies, efficiencies, speeds, and torques. The SPH delivers.”

The SPH is GAM’s latest solution for today’s demanding motion control challenges.  Available in six frame sizes and nominal torque ratings ranging from 15 to 900Nm.

Key Features:

  • Helical Gears
  • Precision cut
  • Higher torque capacity relative to the frame size
  • Smooth and quiet transmission
  • Output dimensions match those of comparable gear reducers on the market
  • Several output configurations simplifies system integration

The new DMC-30016 controller contains a 1.4A/phase, 30V stepper drive in a compact 4.0” x 5.0” x 1.5” package. It drives a two-phase bipolar stepper motor in full-step, half-step, ¼ step or 1/16 step. The DMC-30016 is user configurable from 0.5A to 1.4A per phase in 10mA increments at 12-30VDC. No external heatsink is required.

The DMC-30016 controller/stepper drive is cost-effective at $645 U.S. in single quantity and $415 in quantities of 100.

Linear Shaft Motor in XY Stage Video

Nippon Linear Shaft Motor XY Table Video

Nippon Linear Shaft Motor XY Table Video

One of the features of the Linear Shaft Motor is the ease in which it can be used in a parallel configuration with only one encoder and one drive.  In this video, four Linear Shaft Motors are used in a high precision XY stage.  Two motors are wired in parallel on each axis and are used in a ‘moving shaft’ design.

The Linear Shaft Motor is the first linear servo designed for the ultra high precision market.  The design makes it 50 percent more energy efficient than competing linear motors.  The Linear Shaft Motor is a good choice to replace traditional linear motion system like ball-screws and belt-drives.

Note: the noise heard is not originating from this stage.
