With acceleration values of 140 ms², a linear motor direct drive offers fast acceleration with precision, such as is required for the assembly of small parts, the co. states. The electric linear motor drives ELGL-LAS, DNCE-LAS and DFME-LAS accelerate at 1.5 to 4 times the rate of all other electric and pneumatic drives used in automation technology. They are also two to three times faster than electric axes with a spindle or belt drive, with an accuracy of 10 µm. Cuts assembly time and is suitable for use where both high speeds and high rates of acceleration are required, the co. says.
