Short Stroke Actuators
ETEL (Schaumburg, IL) now offers short stroke actuators
in North America through parent company HEIDENHAIN
Corporation. These extremely reliable Z Standalone
Actuators are to be used in any application where force,
throughput, and long lifetime are required within a small
form factor. These actuators have been designed to cope
with the stringent requirements of turret testing handlers,
providing an average of ten independent Z axes for a
single machine. ETEL’s short stroke actuators are suitable
for all applications requiring pure axial movement over a
short stroke, especially when high dynamics and a small
footprint are key requirements.

EtherCAT Based Closed Loop Control for Pulse/Direction Drives
ACS Motion Control (Bloomington, MN) has strengthened its line of EtherCAT network products with the development of a dual/quad axis pulse/
direction drive interface module (PDICL) that delivers a closed loop motion
control system for stepper (or servo) motor drives with an incremental or
absolute digital encoder feedback device. Designed to help upgrade the
performance of systems utilizing less sophisticated motion control technology without having to redesign the entire system, the PDICL supports up
to four axes with up to four digital encoders (incremental or absolute) at a
maximum speed of 50 million counts per second.

Compact, Precision Ball-Screw Stage
with Linear Encoder
A compact, high-performance linear positioning stage,
Aerotech’s (Pittsburgh, PA) MPS75SLE features exceptionally smooth travel combined with outstanding
accuracy, repeatability, and positioning resolution capability to 25nm. Quick
and straightforward multi-axis configurations are made easily with other
MPS linear and rotary stages using the adapter brackets and mounting
compatibility inherent in the entire MPS stage family. The precision ground,
preloaded ball-screw coupled with a low thermal expansion linear encoder
provides outstanding accuracy, repeatability, and a positioning resolution
capability to 25nm. Anti-creep, crossed-roller bearings provide exceptionally
smooth travel and high-load capacity in a compact package.
