Application Note: Advantages of coupling of linear motors

Does your machine need a power upgrade or do you want to expand an existing design?  Coupling two linear motors is an easy and effective way of increasing the available force.  Herewith you are not just limited to using identical motors.  Various combinations can be made, as long as the motor force constant is the same.  This Application Note discusses some details of a ‘coupled application’.

Advantages of technical solutions like a coupling of motors are usually highly case-specific.  Are you thinking about a solution with either one large motor or a couple of smaller ones?  We have listed some common benefits.

Cost effective

Besides the clear advantages of ‘more force’ in a coupled motors application, there are important cost and logistics advantages. Keeping inventory of a similar coil assembly in stock for multiple machines and applications reduces cost and filed support issues. Existing designs can have multiple force capabilities standardizing on existing parts. As linear motor cost is a function of magnet size using dual coils of a smaller motor significantly adds value. This advantage becomes more apparent for longer magnet tracks.

Possible Couplings

Though the motors always have to be connected to a drive in parallel, mechanically it is possible to align them in series or parallel. Motors can move on different magnet tracks to provide even force to a larger gantry or move on the same magnet track to improve the force in one line. In both cases the total force of all motors equals the sum of individual forces.

New Torque Motor Family from Tecnotion

Tecnotion adds QTR Frameless Torque Motors to its direct drive product offering.  With low axial height and high torque density, the QTR bridges the size-performance gap.

Direct Drive Motors, also know as Torque Motors, are permanent-magnet direct drive motors that rotate along an axis.  They can be used wherever a rotary movement is required and offer numerous advantages over conventional servo drives.

Torque Motors from Tecnotion are extremely compact, provide an extremely stiff drive train, eliminate the need for time-consuming mounting procedures, are virtually maintenance free and can be integrated directly into the machine structure, while the spacious open inner diameter enables wire and cable feedthrough.  To top things off the entire series comes with completely sealed stators and integrated temperature protection and measurement sensors.

Tecnotion QTR

The direct drive technology of brushless torque motors is an ideal way to enhance productivity, accuracy, and dynamic performance of applications.  This technology lowers costs, shrinks space requirements, and reduces wear and tear.  Torque motors eliminate the need for mechanical transmission components such as gearboxes, belts and speed reducers.  This reduces transmission losses and eliminates the cost and maintenance required for additional components.  And because there is no contact between rotor and stator, there is no mechanical wear, meaning less maintenance and longer life.

Tecnotion QTR Product Overview

Tecnotion QTR Product Overview

At first glance the QTR series stands out because of its cast design, which differentiates it from other torque motors by providing a low thermal resistance and very high torque density, as seen in the QTR’s very flat design, large inner diameter and low stator and rotor mass.  All motors come equipped with integrated temperature sensors and high voltage insulation.  Rather than flying leads, the QTR series is provided with braided power and sensor cables with strain relief integrated in the stator housing, reducing the rate of wear and potential failure.

The QTR motor series offers a very flat design for lower axial height and high torque density.  Features such as a large inner diameter, strain-relieved cable exit, integrated temperature sensors, low thermal resistance, and low stator and rotor mass differentiate the QTR products from other torque motors currently available.

With three outer diameters – 105, 133, and 160 mm – and five build heights, ranging from 17 mm to 92 mm, the QTR series suits applications in markets such as Semiconductor, Medical, Machine Tool, Printing, Rotary tables, Factory Automation, and Robotics. Continuous torque ranges from 1.4 to 63.5 Nm, and speed ranges from 190 rpm to 6918 rpm.

New TM12 Iron Core Linear Motor by Tecnotion BV

Almelo, Netherlands – The rare earths present in the permanent magnets of linear motors are a cost-intensive factor.  Against this background, the linear motor specialist Tecnotion expands its product portfolio with a new iron core motor: the TM12 is the third in the TM series, producing the same force as motors containing larger, more expensive magnets.

Tecnotion TM12 Iron Core Linear Motor

Tecnotion TM12 Iron Core Linear Motor

With the addition of the TM12 even applications which require the force from larger motor series are now covered by this new motor.  These applications no longer need wider and therefore more expensive magnet plates.

With the 241mm long coil unit of the TM12, a continuous force of 240N and an ultimate force of 480N can be achieved.  In addition, there is the possibility to couple two motors on the magnet track, which increases the available continuous power to 480N.  The dimensions of the motor are compact: the total installation height including magnet plate is only 40mm, the width of the magnet plate is only 50mm. Speeds of 10 m/s are possible.

Especially in applications with long strokes that require long magnet tracks the TM12 represents a cost-effective alternative.  The potential applications are endless: due to the low cogging one can think of use in industrial printers. But machine tooling or cutting systems are also perfect examples where the TM12 can be used.

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

Tecnotion Linear Motors Pass CSA Certification

Tecnotion takes pride in the continuous improvements in product quality, safety and performance.  We are excited to announce that our entire iron core series are now fully certified for CSA!  With the addition of the CSA certification to the CE certification a milestone has been reached.   The certification applies for series TM, TL TB and TBW.

Tecnotion Linear Motors

Tecnotion Linear Motors

The iron core series completely meet the rules of certification for USA and Canada.  The products are eligible to bear the CSA mark.  The CSA International certification ensures increased quality and safety and it provides better opportunities at the North American Market.

To accomplish the CSA certification minor changes have been made to the iron core series.  All iron core motors now contain the same black casting compound.  The new casting material has improved flame retardant properties and is more environmentally friendly.  The cable diameter of the TM-series has been decreased.
