GREATER FLEXIBILITY AND DYNAMICS
Especially when more than two positions are required, when positions need to be changed by software, when motions are synchronized to a main drive, or when the dynamics and service life of a pneumatic cylinder are simply not sufficient, designers gladly turn to linear direct drives from LinMot.

SIMPLE START-UP
By integrating the control of position, speed, acceleration, and force, commissioning is made much easier. Motion parameters are
calculated when the project is laid out, and can be adopted directly during commissioning.

IMPROVED PROCESS STABILITY
Unlike pneumatic cylinders, where only the end positions are checked, the position of a linear motor is constantly controlled and monitored. This leads to much greater process stability, because very small deviations can be detected when needed.

REPLACEMENT PAYS OFF EVEN FOR SIMPLE MOTIONS
Due to high operating costs for pneumatics, the use of industrial linear motors pays off to an increasing degree, even for simple point-to-point motions with only two end positions. This is especially true when motions are performed regularly in cyclical operations, and pneumatic cylinders need to be oversized due to speed and load conditions. In this case, the energy and maintenance costs exceed the investment costs within a few weeks (see example, right).

SIMILAR CONFIGURATION MAKES REPLACEMENT EASY
Industrial linear motors have a cylindrical form factor and similar dimensions to pneumatic cylinders. For this reason, they are commonly used as replacements for pneumatic actuators in existing and new designs.

LinMot P04 Linear Motor

Manufactured by: LinMot
Sold and Serviced by Motion Technologies Pty Ltd. Ph +61 2 9524 4782. webenquiry@motiontech.com.au

At this year’s SPS IPC Drives conference, LinMot presents the newly developed model P04 linear motor. This motor has all the benefits of the familiar tubular linear motor and the additional advantage of an integrated linear guidance. The P04-actuator can be equipped with mechanical accessories which are known from pneumatics.

LinMot Overview

Manufactured by: LinMot
Sold and Serviced by Motion Technologies Pty Ltd. Ph +61 2 9524 4782. webenquiry@motiontech.com.au

LinMot® linear motors employ a direct electromagnetic principle. Electromagnetic force provides direct linear movement without the use of cams, gears, belts, or other mechanical devices. The motor consists of only two parts; the slider and the stator. The slider is a precision assembly that consists of a stainless steel tube, which is filled with neodymium magnets, that has threaded attachment holes on each end. The stator, consisting of coils, the bearing for the slider, position sensors and a microprocessor board, is designed for use in harsh industrial environments.

LinMot Linear Motor Guides

Manufactured by: LinMot
Sold and Serviced by Motion Technologies Pty Ltd. Ph +61 2 9524 4782. webenquiry@motiontech.com.au

Series H01 Linear Guides are compact guide units with integrated ball bearings or plain bushings, for operating LinMot P01 linear motors with standard or heavy duty sliders. H01 Linear Guides are used as load bearings, to resist external forces and rotational and bending moments, and as an anti-rotation device. They provide high-precision guidance and allow dynamic
and precise positioning of the load. The load is mounted directly to the front plate of the linear guide. Mechanical dimensions and
mounting options are compatible with pneumatic linear guides. The modular design allows simple addition of accessories, such as a mechanical brake or magnetic spring, for load balancing in vertical applications.

LinMot MagSpring

Manufactured by: LinMot
Sold and Serviced by Motion Technologies Pty Ltd. Ph +61 2 9524 4782. webenquiry@motiontech.com.au

MagSpring products can best be described as “magnetic springs”. The term “spring”, however, is to be understood to mean that MagSpring components generate a constant force over their entire working range, while the characteristic curve for a typical mechanical spring shows an increase in force with increasing displacement. The generation of force that is independent of the stroke makes MagSpring preferable for balancing weight forces in vertical drive applications.
