The direct-drive Linear Servo Slide system from IntelLiDrives is a linear motor solution that eliminates wear, friction, backlash and compliances associated with mechanical transmissions, such as ball and lead screws, rack & pinion, belts, and gearboxes.
The Linear Motor Forcer features non-contact design and low cogging for fast and accurate positioning. A carriage support double rod bearing system is integrated into the slide to support moving carriage and to provide dynamic stiffness and precise straightness of travel. Bearing rollers are magnetically pre-loaded by the carriage against the magnet track.
An integral Linear Encoder provides precision non-contact linear position feedback with a resolution of 1 micron. An encoder index mark provides “home” position with repeatability to 1 micron.
A cable transport module with high flex robotic cable is installed and pre-wired to the amplifier. The actuator can be mounted up-side down and vertically. Also, multi-axes gantry and XYZ arms can be easily constructed using multiple Linear Servo Slides.
The main features of the Linear Servo Slide include:
- Turn-key, linear motor solution
- Modular design
- High speed (3 m/sec) and acceleration
- Zero backlash
- Integrated cable track
- Low profile
