When it comes to executing translational motions as efficiently and flexibly as possible, linear motors are generally used. Unlike rotating motors, linear motors do not produce rotating movements but rather linear movements that move in two directions. In this regard, QUICKSHAFT® linear motors open entirely new dimension for linear movements.
The high-performance and compact linear drives consist of a solid stator housing with a coil assembly and a multi-pole magnetic forcer rod. High-power magnets help the drive achieve its extraordinary force and dynamic speed performance. The drive is typically used in areas with high acceleration, high precision and high repetition frequency. Linear motors are therefore used in many different areas and open entirely new possibilities, such as a revolution for playing the piano or an ultimately precise microscope scanning stage, where a high accuracy can be decisive. The possibilities to use linear motors are almost endless.
Perfect position control
FAULHABER technology combines the speed and robustness of a pneumatic system with the flexibility and reliability features of an electro-mechanical linear motor. The innovative design with a 3-phase self-supporting coil and non-magnetic metal housing offers outstanding performance. The absence of residual static force and the excellent relationship between the linear force and current make the linear motors ideal for use in micro-positioning applications. Position control of the linear DC servomotors can easily be realised using the integrated Hall sensors.
