LinMot Product Family Overview

In the products and in the everyday life of NTI AG, these values are inseparable.
NTI AG is a global manufacturer of high quality tubular style linear motors and linear motor systems and thus focuses on the development, production and distribution of linear direct drives for use in industrial environments. Founded in 1993 as an independent business unit of the Sulzer Group, NTI AG has been in operation since 2000 as an independent company.
NTI AG headquarters are located in Spreitenbach, near Zurich in Switzerland. In addition to three production sites in Switzerland and Slovakia, NTI AG maintains a sales and support office LinMot® USA Inc. to cover the Americas.
The brands LinMot® for industrial linear motors and MagSpring® for magnetic springs are offered to customers worldwide. NTI AG maintains an experienced customer consultant sales and support network of over 80 locations worldwide.
For the realization of linear motion NTI AG is always a competent and reliable partner.

Mission
LinMot offers its customers a sophisticated and dedicated linear drive system that can be easily integrated into all leading control systems. A high degree of standardization, delivery from stock and a worldwide distribution network insure the immediate availability and excellent customer support. Our aim is to push linear direct drive technology and make it a standard machine design element. We offer highly efficient drive solutions that make a major contribution to the overall resource conservation effort.

LinMot Bottle Closure Application

LinMot linear rotary motors have been developed for closure and screw driving processes, allowing flexible closure and screw driving processes to be implemented easily.

  • One physical axis with independently programmable linear and rotary motions
  • Open parameterization of positions, linear speed, rotary speed, force and torque
  • Readout of torque, rotary speed, angle, vertical position, linear speed, and force
  • Can be integrated in any control system

LinMot Cost Optimisation for Linear Motor

LinMot Cost Optimisation for Linear Motor has the following features:

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, below).

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.

ADVANTAGES OF INDUSTRIAL LINEAR MOTORS

  • Freely positionable
  • Extremely dynamic
  • Long Service Life
  • Adjustable speed
  • Monitored motions
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Adjustable acceleration
  • Gentle motions
  • Hygiene (no air)
  • Programmable force
  • Synchronization capability
  • Low energy costs

LinMot Industrial Linear Motor Guides

LinMot Industrial Linear Motor Guides Series H01 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

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.
