HEIDENHAIN now offers ETEL DynX stages in three sizes of direct-driven linear axes, three sizes of direct-driven rotary axes and one high precision ball screw-driven axes for vertical applications. Direct-driven servo motors are suitable for high-performance motion in automation applications, semiconductor and electronics industries that need to maximize throughput and flexibility.
ETEL DynX systems are pre-engineered to let designers concentrate on advancing their own core processes. The stages also help minimize risk on critical specifications, shorten project timeframes, reduce development costs for motion systems, and improve machine flexibility, serviceability and maintenance.
DynX direct-drive axes feature high precision recirculating ball bearings, high accuracy optical encoders, and iron core motors with zero backlash to deliver speeds to 3 m/sec, acceleration to 5 g, bidirectional repeatability of ±0.5 µm at ±3 sigma, absolute position accuracy of ±2 µm after calibration, and position stability of ±50 nm. The DynX linear series also has high mounting versatility, an easy-to-access interface, and options such as limit switches and Hall-effect sensors for easy integration.
DynX rotary direct-drive axes from ETEL have toothless motor technology for zero backlash along with zero cogging force, ideal for applications requiring speed stability. DynX rotary axes also include a high accuracy optical encoder, allowing for speeds up to 391 rpm, bidirectional repeatability of ±1.5 arc sec at ±3 sigma, position accuracy of ±3 arc sec after calibration, and position stability of ±0.2 arc sec. The DynX rotary series also a large hollow shaft, a low profile and low mass, and optional limited strokes and air purge to further simplify integration.
