Introducing Galil’s New C Programming Library

This February Galil introduced a new C application program interface (API) library.  This library gives programmers access to powerful routines to interact with Galil motion controllers in a wide variety of application development environments.  The Galil C Library, or “gclib”, replaces the C++ GalilTools Communication Library.

HPGP High Torque Series of Harmonic Planetary Gearheads

Harmonic HPGP Gearhead

Harmonic HPGP Gearhead

The HPGP Harmonic Planetary® gearhead uses four planet gears to deliver High-Torque and High-Accuracy in a compact package. The gearhead incorporates continuous backlash compensation that ensures low backlash throughout the life of the gear. A large Cross Roller bearing serves as the output flange and can directly support large loads with high moment stiffness.

HPGP planetary gears are available with a flange output, smooth output shaft or a shaft with a key and tapped center hole.

  • Available in 6 Frame Sizes
  • Peak Torque: 12Nm to 3,940Nm
  • Ratios: 4:1 to 45:1
  • High Efficiency
  • Backlash < 3 arc-min (<1arc-min available as an option)
  • Repeatability ±20 arc-sec
  • High load capacity Cross Roller output bearing
  • Quick Connect™ coupling for easy mounting of any motor
  • Available with flange output, output shaft without key or shaft with key and center tapped hole

Closed-Loop Stepper Motor Performance Gains

A New White Paper from Galil Motion Control

Galil White Paper PicModern motion controllers can include the ability to run stepper motors with encoder feedback, resulting in true closed-loop motion control. This mode of motor control is very similar to standard three-phase brushless servo motor control, where the three phases are offset 120 electrical degrees. With steppers, the motor has two phases offset by 90 electrical degrees. The benefits of closed-loop control with stepper motors include greatly improved velocity smoothness and reduced power consumption compared to open-loop steppers and much higher torque at low velocity compared with traditional three-phase brushless servo motors…

New 610 Series Positioning Stage from Lintech features 7,780 lbs (3530 kg) Load Capacity

Lintech 610 Positioning Stage

Lintech 610 Positioning Stage

Now available from LinTech is the totally enclosed 610 series low-cost positioning stage.  This large load capacity totally enclosed positioning stage is available in stroke lengths from 6 to 60 in (150 to 1520 mm) and ships in ~2 weeks.

The Lintech 610 series screw driven linear enclosed slides are designed to maximize performance while minimizing physical size and cost.  These linear positioning systems use a low friction, preloaded, recirculating linear ball bearing system, which ride on precision ground linear rail guides.  The linear rails are mounted to an extruded aluminum base, which offers a rigid support over the entire travel of the table’s carriage.  The load is mounted to a precision machined aluminum carriage, which has threaded stainless steel inserts for high strength and wear life.  There are 38 different acme & ball screw options that offer high efficiencies and long life at an economical price.  These linear tables are designed to allow for numerous options.  They include EOT & Home switches, linear & rotary encoders, power-off electric brakes, motor wrap packages, and versatile mounting brackets for multiple axis applications.

Features include:

  • Self lube linear bearings
  • Enclosed IP-30 rated system
  • Shorter length since no waycovers  used 
  • Rigid screw support for high critical speed
  • Side access holes for screw nut lube input
  • Profile rails for high rigidity & load capacity 
  • Switch wiring slot with connector on end plate
  • Wide rail & bearing spacing for high moment loads
  • NEMA, Rockwell, Parker, Mitsubishi, Yaskawa mounts
  • Many options for screw, brake, encoder, switches etc.

Lintech’s website also has a time saving sizing app for the 610.  This allows for selection of the travel, screw type, and input of application parameters.  This then provides all inertia values, maximum speed, and required torque without looking up any specifications from the 610 catalog.  This program also can be used on smart phones or an iPad.  There is also sizing for all other systems as well.    Click on the link below to launch the sizing application.
