Expert motion control: Elmo Motion Control launches inertial platform stabilisation solution

Elmo’s inertial platform stabilisation solution impresses with its miniature Platinum Lion network motion controller. With EtherCAT communications and cycle times of less than 250 microseconds, the multi-axis controller delivers high-precision axis and IO synchronisation with a jitter...

Redefining the kilogram as the Unit of Mass: Heason's vacuum compatible and non-magnetic motion system updated for continuing research

The manipulator was used as part of the enabling technology for the world-wide Avogadro Project that was formed to redefine the kilogram as the SI unit of mass in terms of the Planck constant and the atomic mass of Silicon-28. On the 20th May 2019, on World Metrology Day, the global metrology...

Show preview: Heason Technology at DSEI 2019 at ExCel - London, Stand S3-102 - 10th - 13th September

Spinea are a prominent distribution partner for Heason, producing high precision zero-backlash reduction gear units with high-torque capacity and especially suited to high accuracy positioning tasks where extreme axial and radial rigidity is essential. As a gear reducer and radial-axial...

Allied Motion's EPS power steering system provide all-in-one solution for steer-by-wire storage and retrieval vehicles

For AGVs, an optional patent-pending feature for the EPS removes the need for time consuming homing routines at power-up or the need for external position sensors by integrating absolute position feedback for the turning wheel. The power steering system can also be used with Allied Motion’s...

Cost and time efficient linear motion: Thomson MLA series hybrid stepper motor actuators available from Heason Technology

Typical stepper motor driven positioning mechanics, including stepper actuators, drive a lead screw that translates the motor’s rotary motion into linear motion and force by way of a captive nut. This requires additional support components and an external anti-rotational device for the...

High power density, safe motion and unparalleled servo performance: Kollmorgen AKD2G dual axis Servo Drive and AKM2G Servo Motor

The drive’s novel modular design includes expandable I/O and expandable memory, multiple choice servo feedback and fieldbus interfacing plus Kollmorgen’s unique single-cable technology - offering optimal choice and flexibility for user-specified motion tasks. Time and cost saving...
