Bosch Rexroth’s (www.boschrexroth.com) latest ironless linear motors feature four different sizes with graded lengths and a maximum force ranging from 20 to 1,700 newtons. This allows the motors to achieve a maximum acceleration of 300 m/s² and speed of up to 1,200 m/min.
Extremely dynamic, the MCL ironless product line can be easily integrated into machines, making them ideal for applications in semiconductor and solar technology as well as in assembly and handling technology.
Setting up some of the motor’s primary parts parallel or in sequence with each other will optimize the performance of the motor. Offering the highest flexibility in construction design, the motors’ compact design allows its primary and secondary parts to be mounted in various planes.
The MCL product line of linear motors also comes with an optional Hall sensor unit to enable it to determine the initial commutation’s position.
Unlike ironcore motors, the MCL linear motors offer a distinctive ironless design of the primary part that features three-phase winding. Completely compound-filled, the three-phase copper winding is not inserted in an iron core. The motor’s primary part carrier is utilized for heat removal and for mounting the primary components. Enclosing the primary part, the U-shaped secondary part features permanent magnets. This means that slots cannot attract the forces between the primary and secondary components. With linear force constant, the motor delivers compact, cost efficient rail systems. The relatively small mass movement of the primary components enables the linear motors to provide a high degree of dynamics with precision.
