TBW Series Iron Core Linear Motor from Tecnotion

The TBW series is the water cooled variant of the TB series.  It features a fully integrated, highly efficient cooling system which enables the TBW to reach even higher continuous forces than the standard version and sustain extreme accelerations while maintaining its submicron position accuracy.  Since heat is not dissipated into the machine’s construction, it is especially suited for applications where thermal management is an issue.

Tecnotion TBW Linear Motor

Tecnotion TBW Linear Motor

This type of motor has a low magnetic resistance. The ironcore and the magnet closing plate are excellent flux conductors, so only the magnets and a single airgap contribute to the resistance in the circuit.  Due to this low resistance, the ironcore motor’s operation involves a strong flux, yielding high forces and excellent efficiency.  That makes this type a real workhorse with the following main features:

  • high peak force density
  • high continuous force density
  • relatively low heat dissipation

Motion Control for Newbies

Motion Control For Newbies
Check out the latest publication from the maxon academy, Motion Control for Newbies, a practical introduction to motion control.  132 pages.

The basic approach of this textbook, like many, is a practical and experimental one; however, it is reversed from most.  Instead of first explaining the theory of motion control and then applying it to specific examples, here we will start with hands-on experimenting on a real maxon EPOS2 P positioning control system by means of the EPOS Studio software and explain all the relevant motion control principles/features as they appear on the journey.  Therefore, the text contains mainly the exercises and practical work to do.  Background information can be found in the colored boxes.

This is primarily a textbook about motion control and not about programming a PLC. Therefore, the programming part should be considered as an introduction on how to program the motion control aspects.  It is not a full PLC programming course.

Motion control is mechatronics.  It is the combination of mechanics and electronics, of actuators (motors) and sensors all controlled by software.  In this textbook, we identify and define the role, behavior and mutual interaction of the different elements of a motion control system.  However, we need to know the basic internal construction and working principles of the elements only to a limited extent, but rather look at them as a black box.  Given a certain input, what comes out of the box?  How is this output generated and which parameter can be used to influence the output?  For instance, we will not explain how feed forward control must be implemented, but we will explain the basic idea of it and how the parameters will look during axis tuning… click on the link below to download the complete textbook.
