Low-inertia hollow-core voice-coil or moving-coil linear motors from Moticont feature high acceleration, precise positioning to less than one micron (0.00004 in.), high reliability, and low cost. The cleanroom friendly, non-commutated motors are available in 23 off-the-shelf standard sizes with open apertures of 0.125 in. (3.2 mm) to 2.000 in. (50.8 mm). The linear motor’s hollow core allows for optics, illumination, laser beams, or cables to pass through.
For easy integration into new and existing applications, these motors are available in five standard outside diameters of 0.625 in. (15.9 mm) up to 3.750 in. (95.3 mm). Stroke lengths are from 0.125 in (3.2 mm) to 2.500 in. (63.5 mm), and continuous force ratings are from 5.0 oz (1.4 N) to 16.3 lbs (72.4 N), and peak forces are from 15.7 oz. (4.4 N) to 51.5 lbs. (228.9 N) at a 10% duty cycle. Applications include positioning, medical diagnostics and testing, laser beam steering, dynamic vibration absorption, optical focusing, laser cutting & welding, scanning, assembly, and wafer handling.
Low inertia, high acceleration, high speed, and zero cogging, are the benefits of moving coil or voice coil linear motors. When used in a closed-loop applications with an optional position sensor, resolutions of less then 1 micron are achievable, for millions of cycles. If longer than standard strokes, higher forces, or customized mounting are required, consult Moticont’s team of engineers. All of Moticont’s voice coil motors are available as complete plug-and-play systems, including, position sensor, controller, amplifier, power supply, and if required with a linear slide.
