PERFORMANCE MOTION DEVICES, INC.
Our new MC58113 IC is a motion
breakthrough in price and performance.
Supporting Brushless DC, step, and DC
Brush motors; this powerful yet tiny IC
features high performance FOC current
control, advanced S-curve profiling, and
direct PWM signal output. Constant
innovation – it’s why PMD’s motion
technology is at the heart of so many
medical, industrial, semiconductor,
and automation control applications.

Compact Rotary Stage
This compact SRT Rotary Table with direct drive servo motor
technology (DDR) eliminates backlash, reduces the number
of mechanical components, and provides stiff mechanical
system for highly dynamic applications. Pre-tapped mounting holes and a hollow-through shaft permit a variety of
machine designs. It is fitted with precision four point contact
preloaded ball bearings. Low and high speed (1,000 RPM)
windings and resolution to 0.2 arc-sec available. It is also
equipped with a high-accuracy encoder mounted directly
to the rotor to provide improved positioning accuracy and
eliminate backlash, positioning delays, and maintenance
requirements. The rotary table can be used as a flexible
indexer, providing programmable, rapid indexing. It can also
be used for replacing mechanical transmissions such as
gearboxes, timing belts, and rack and pinion reducers.

Thomson Industries Inc. introduces a new express shipping service for its SB Series power off brakes. It offers
customers 24 to 48 hours shipments on most options in
the series, including all 10 available frame sizes. SB Series
products are further designed to withstand severe environmental conditions. They have a class H insulation system
that covers temperatures up to 180°C and a fully potted
coil that resists environmental contaminants such as dust,
dirt, and humidity. They come as standard with a zinc plating to protect from rusting. The SB brakes are designed to
give longer life and work in almost any environment. They
are resistant to high shock loads, work well in temperatures
up to 180°C, and are resist to dirty, dusty conditions. Custom variations of the SB Series brakes, including adaption
for use in rigorous outdoor environments, are available.

The Velmex BiSlide positioning stage’s modular design makes
it configurable for a multitude of different motion-control applications. Multi-axis positioning systems can be quickly and easily
assembled using this system. The design is ideal for scientific,
medical, industrial, optical, inspection, and scanning applications. The systems can be used to position, align, measure,
test, fixture, and machine. Constructed with hard-coat anodized,
aluminum dovetail ways, and smooth motion PTFE bearings;
BiSlide assemblies deliver higher rigidity for longer life and
more precise movement. The assemblies have a load capacity
of 300lbs. (13kg.) horizontally and 100lbs. (45.4kg.) vertically.
Straight-line accuracy is 0.003” (0.076mm) over entire travel
distance. Repeatability is 0.0002” (0.005mm). Since BiSlide
components are interchangeable, they can be easily recon-figured as the need arises. One, two, and three axis systems
are created by simply bolting together standard components
utilizing the advantages of T-slot framing.
