Linear Motors and Linear Actuators for Advanced Automation
Driven by semiconductor industry requirements, linear motor manufacturers have steadily increased precision, reduced prices, developed multiple motor types, and simplified integration into automation equipment. Modern linear motors provide 0g peak acceleration and 10-meters/second velocity, deliver unmatched dynamic agility, minimize maintenance, and multiply uptime. They have moved beyond specialized semiconductor industry usage to provide advanced performance in hosts of applications. In fact, with ten times the speed and ten times the operating life of ballscrews, linear direct drive technology is often the only solution for modern productivity-enhancing automation.
