Motion Control Tutorial – What is a Voice Coil Actuator?

Motion Control – Understanding the Basics of a Voice Coil Actuator   A voice coil actuator, also known as a non-commutated DC linear actuator, is a type of direct drive linear motor.  The name “voice coil” comes from one of its historically first applications: vibrating the paper cone of a loudspeaker.  They are currently used […]

Motion Control Application- Vacuum Compatible Maxon Motors for Extreme Conditions!

Maxon Motor spent several months working alongside Instrument Design Technology (IDT) to customize a small, brushless motor to perform in the extreme vacuum conditions of the synchrotron. This article highlights the challenges in the design.   Fall River, MA — Motion Control Components Application – The Diamond Light Source particle accelerator in Oxfordshire has been […]

Linear Motion Control – High Torque Rotary Voice Coil Actuators!

  Santa Clarita, CA —– Linear Motion Control – H2W Technologies has developed several high torque rotary voice coil actuators, otherwise known as a limited angle torque motors or LATs. The model TWR-015-346-2RC was designed to allow for a low moving mass (68 grams per coil) and inertia, as well as dual independent coils to […]

Motion Control Tutorial – Slotted vs. Slotless Motor Technology

When first introduced, brushless DC motors, despite their many advantages, were cast as a costly alternative to brush-commutated motors and were typically only specified for low-power applications where long life was the primary desired requirement. Without the mechanical brush-commutator mechanism that would wear and eventually result in motor failure, brushless motors could be relied upon […]
