Ultra Precision Linear Motor Stages with Built-in Controllers - X-LDM-AE

Zaber's X-LDM-AE Series devices are motorized linear motor stages suited for applications demanding outstanding precision, throughput, and reliability.

A centrally mounted linear encoder results in 1 µm position accuracy and consistent movement steps down to 25 nm. X-LDM-AE devices feature high efficiency ironless linear motors, providing high speed and acceleration, while minimizing heat generation to improve repeatability. Both the drive and encoder are non-contact and have no moving cables, resulting in a high lifetime system.

Features include:
• 80 nm repeatability; 1 µm accuracy; 25 nm minimum incremental move
• Direct position measurement from 1 nm resolution linear encoder
• Up to 1.2 m/s speed; up to 3.5 g acceleration
• 60 - 210 mm travel options
• Non-contact ironless linear motor for ultra precision, high dynamics and zero backlash

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.
