Servo2Go introduces Vacuum Stages & Actuators

Servo2Go.com has just added Zaber's New Low and High Vacuum Stages & Actuators to its broad range of high performance cost effective linear slides and actuators.

November 21, 2011 - Servo2Go.com has just added Zaber's New Low and High Vacuum Stages & Actuators to its broad range of high performance cost effective linear slides and actuators.


Only a 5 pin feed-through is required to operate multiple Zaber positioners in a vacuum chamber.
The high-vacuum units are vacuum rated to 10^-6 torr. All components are chosen for low out-gassing and low CVCM.

The low-vacuum units are vacuum rated to 10^-3 torr and use vacuum compatible greases and epoxies. All have non-anodized components.

Zaber\'s devices can do a complicated series of moves with free software.

Kit version includes a power supply, data cables, and a serial adapter.

Reduce Wiring/Feedthroughs by daisy-chaining devices with built-in controllers inside the vacuum chamber: Two or more devices can be daisy-chained inside a vacuum chamber, eliminating the need for extra feedthroughs. Just solder the signal wires directly from one device to the next in the chain.: Power to vacuum devices is transmitted through the data cables, eliminating the need for extra feedthroughs. A Zaber T-DSUB9-P (included with kits) is used to splice the power into the data cable - it is connected to the data cable outside the vacuum chamber.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
