High output force in an 86.4 mm x 34.3 mm cross section
Continuous force to 397.6 N (89.4 lb); peak force to 1590.4 N (357.5 lb)
High-energy rare-earth magnets used in magnet tracks for high acceleration capability
Non-magnetic forcer provides high force with zero cogging for super-smooth velocity and position control
Follows the 2011/65/EU RoHS 2 Directive
Aerotech's "U-channel" BLM series linear motors are 86.4 mm x 34.3 mm in cross section and have proven ideal for both high-accuracy and high-throughput applications.
BLM series motors are direct drive and consist of a noncontacting forcer and "U-channel" rare-earth magnet track. This design eliminates backlash, windup, wear and maintenance issues associated with ball screws, belts, and rack and pinions.
The noncontact design of the forcer and magnet track results in a maintenance-free system.
