New DMC-500×0 EtherCAT Master Multi-Axis Motion Controller from Galil Motion Control

Galil DMC-500x0 EtherCAT Master Multi-Axis Motion Controller

Galil DMC-500×0 EtherCAT Master Multi-Axis Motion Controller

The DMC-500×0 EtherCAT Controller is Galil Motion Control’s newest entry in its latest generation of digital motion controllers.  Incorporating all of the features of our flagship Accelera series controller and designed with compatibility and flexibility in mind, the DMC-500×0 allows integration of remote EtherCAT drives into new and existing applications with just a handful of configuration commands.  The DMC-500×0 is offered in 1 through 8 axis formats.  Axes 1 – 4 can be configured as either local or EtherCAT drives while axes 5 – 8 can be configured for additional EtherCAT drives.

Unique to the motion control industry, this ability to mix and match local and EtherCAT drives on the same controller provides increased flexibility for any application.  In addition, the DMC-500×0 is fully compatible with Galil’s internal servo and stepper motor amplifiers as well as third party external drives.

ATR: The Fastest Direct Drive Rotary Motor by Akribis Systems

Akribis ATR Direct Drive Rotary Motor

Akribis ATR Direct Drive Rotary Motor

The ATR is another revolutionary direct drive motor from Akribis Systems.  The patent-pending design provides the motor with super high torque and low rotor inertia at the same time.

In our ATR design, we replaced the conventional rotor back iron with another set of coils.  The removal of the back iron significantly reduced the rotor inertia.  And the additional inner coils result in much higher torque output.  These combined features give ATR unparalleled dynamic performance.

Features include:

  • Super high torque and low rotor inertia
  • Excellent dynamic performance
  • Fastest direct drive rotary motor
  • Various sizes with air/water cooling options
  • Ideal for indexing applications

Galil White Paper: Advanced Applications of Electronic Gearing

Part 1 of 3: Tension Control on Spindle Wheel

Introduction

Electronic gearing in motion control allows for a slave axis to follow a master axis with a programatically set gear ratio.  There are certain applications that obviously lend to an electronic gearing solution, but there are some challenging applications where the functionality of electronic gearing can greatly simplify a solution in a manner that may not seem obvious at first.  This series of three papers will discuss how electronic gearing can provide simple solutions to different motion control challenges.

Tips for Designing Clean Room Equipment

Mechanical components intended to run in clean rooms for wafer fabrication must comply with uniform industry standards that dictate the number and size of particles they can generate.

As the computer and electronics industries pack more circuits on semiconductor wafers, particle generation in the clean rooms where they are processed becomes more critical with each generation.  In many applications, mechanical positioning stages are a large contributor to contamination.  Suppliers are required to follow special design criteria that ensure a positioning stage’s cleanliness according to certain standards…

Custom Rotary Positioning Stages from Bell Everman

A guide to ServoBelt Rotary and Direct Drive Theta modification

While off-the-shelf rotary stages will do the job in most cases, sometimes your application requirements call for a customized stage.  It may be something as simple as a special bolt hole pattern on the top of the stage.  Or you may need a way to secure a workpiece in the stage center opening.  Or you may need to squeeze a rotary positioning device into a tight space.

Whatever your requirements, we can help.  We’ve introduced accessories and modular design features that make it easy to customize our standard Servo-Belt Rotary (SBR) and Direct Drive Theta (DDT) rotary stages. And in cases where our standard rotary platforms can’t be modified to fit your requirements, we can often design and build one-of-a-kind rotary motion systems to your specifications.

Submersible/Harsh Environment Linear Shaft Motor

Nippon Pulse Linear Shaft Motor Family

The Linear Shaft Motor, from Nippon Pulse America, has no backlash, no wear and provides extremely smooth motion.  Because the Linear Shaft Motor is a simple mechanical design consisting of only a forcer (coils) and magnetic shaft, it is virtually maintenance free, creates minimal noise and operates well in harsh and wash down environments.

The Linear Shaft Motor is also an ideal replacement for more traditional linear motion systems including ball-screws, belt drives, piezo motors, u-channel motors, and rack and pinion linear actuators.  The Linear Shaft Motor provides greater energy efficiency, precision, accuracy, repeatability, and cost efficiency than similar linear systems.
