MICROMO Announces the New DMC-30019 Controller for the Piezo LEGS® Motor Series

MICROMO is pleased to announce that PiezoMotor Uppsala AB (Sweden), leading provider of linear and rotary high end positioning systems, is announcing the latest drive option for the high precision Piezo LEGS® motor series. The new DMC-30019 is a single-axis controller based on architecture from Galil Motion Control, Inc.


"Galil makes high end controllers that are widely used within areas like semiconductor, medtech, automation, optics and research" says Olle Lindkvist, Marketing Manager (PiezoMotor). "Engineers worldwide can now benefit from familiarity of the Galil control interface when they design systems using piezoelectric motors. The Piezo LEGS® motor, together with the new DMC-30019, gives outstanding performance in high precision applications."

The motion controller operates stand-alone or can be networked to a PC via Ethernet. Features include PID compensation with velocity and acceleration feed forward, program memory with multitasking for concurrent execution of four programs, and uncommitted optically isolated inputs and outputs for synchronizing motion with external events. Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, jogging, contouring, PVT, electronic gearing and electronic cam.

Like all Galil motion controllers, these controllers use a simple, English-like command language which makes them very easy to program. PiezoTools software further simplifies system set-up with real-time display of position and velocity information.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
