The new LVCM-010-013-01 linear voice coil motor from Moticont is only 0.375 in. (9.5 mm) in diameter and the length at mid-stroke is just 0.81 in. (20.7 mm) long. However, this new miniature voice coil motor has a high force-to-size ratio with a continuous force of 1.0 oz (0.28 N), a peak force of 3.2 oz (0.88 N), and a 0.25 in. (6.4 mm) stroke.
A clean brushless dc linear servo motor which has high acceleration/deceleration and low inertia, the LVCM-010-013-01, is highly efficient, and suitable for a number of applications including haptic feedback in medical/surgical instruments, vibration damping, work holding and clamping, laser machining and drilling, assembly, sorting, packaging, sampling, scanning, laser beam steering and filtering, wafer handling, and pharmaceutical applications.
The LVCM-010-013-01 offers high accuracy and repeatability when operated as a dc servo motor in a closed servo loop using a position sensor.
This miniature linear motor has a 2-56 UNC-2B threaded mounting hole in the housing and a 2-56 UNC-2B threaded mounting hole in the coil end for easy integration into new and existing applications. A complete plug-and-play system including an encoder and servo controller is also available.
There are more offerings in this family of Moticont’s LVCM linear motors based on diameter of the motor, and over 50 models based on length of stroke and/or force to select from. To find the right motor for your application go to http://moticont.com/voice-coil-motor.htm.
