Spread of linear motors continues unabated …
and new features keep axes cool
My next stop was the Chieftek MD&M booth — a company that makes linear motors for precision applications. Here, Tony Chou greets a couple show attendees.
Tony also showed me an array of iron-core an ironless linear motors for various applications … notice the specially shaped channel and slider. This geometry — a patented shape — helps dissipate and boost linear-motor output.
Here’s Tony also showing me the reinforced carriage end from their traditional recirculating-ball linear rail.
