Announcing MOTIONEERING® Online

Announcing MOTIONEERING® Online – Kollmorgen has revamped, modernized and put online one of the most respected applications sizing programs of the last 20 years.  You now can access this application sizing and selection tool where ever you have access to the internet.  This initial launch of MOTIONEERING Online is just a start of a series of releases that will empower you to optimize solutions for your toughest applications.  Sizing frameless motors and drive systems has never been easier.  Using a mechanism project concept for collecting and saving multiple axes of load information, MOTIONEERING® Online can automatically calculate application results and compare against a catalog of systems – recommending the most optimized set of Kollmorgen system solutions available.

Versatile units-of-measure selection options for mechanism and motion profile data-entry, with the ability to convert data into other available units, makes this a convenient international tool.  A user-friendly Help file teaches program functions and algorithms used to provide results.

Live Webinar- EtherCAT as a Master Machine Control Tool

Join us for a Live Webinar Presented by Galil Motion Control on March 3, 2015 11:00am EST

There is an increasing demand in the automation and motion control industries for a localized motion control solution that can coordinate motion between multiple remote components.  Previously, field bus protocols such as Modbus or Ethernet/IP have been implemented to address remote I/O connectivity.  Although successful in moving data across automation networks, these protocols lacked the real time performance necessary for a distributed motion control system.

The EtherCAT communication protocol provides a high speed, low overhead communication scheme that allows efficient, deterministic communication between motion controller and remote components.  Based on CANOpen and streamlined specifically for point to point transmission of real time data, the EtherCAT standard is quickly becoming the preferred choice for centralized control of tightly coupled motion between remote components.  This presentation is aimed at designers of automation and motion control systems with a basic understanding of Ethernet/IP and EtherCAT communications.  Topics will include an overview of the communication scheme, physical layout and applications where EtherCAT is the right solution.

CSF Series Mini Gearheads from Harmonic Drive LLC

Harmonic Drive CSF Mini Gearheads

Harmonic Drive CSF Mini Gearheads

The Harmonic Drive CFS series of mini gearheads provide high positioning accuracy in a very compact package with a 4-point ball bearing mounted in the main shaft.  The CFS mini gearhead series comes in four types; the 2XH-F, the 2XH-J, the 1U and 1U-CC.  Each gearhead is designed for servomotor and specific applications.

Gearhead Type 2XH-F
This gearhead is designed to be coupled directly to a servomotor.  The motor shaft is attached directly to the gearhead input element.  The output of the gearhead is a flange.
Gearhead Type 2XH-J
This gearhead is designed to be coupled directly to a servomotor.  The motor shaft is attached directly to the gearhead input element. The output of the gearhead is a shaft.
Gearhead Type 1U
This gearhead is easy to use and has both an input and output shaft.  It also allows for pulleys to be used for the input to the gearhead.
Gearhead Type 1U-CC
This gearhead is designed to be coupled directly to a high performance small servomotor.
