See what parallel linear-shaft motors can do for you. In general, they act as a single unit and operate using only one encoder and servodriver.
Check out how the engineers and technicians at Rahal-Letterman-Lanigan get their BMW M3s ready to tackle the track in American Le Mans Racing Series racing.
Watch a video on hybrid motion, which combines the best of step motors and servo control, from an expert on the topic, Paul Kling from IMS Schneider Electric Motion. (8:45 minutes long)
This informative article not only outlines several techniques for damping stepper-motor resonances, it also explains where all those resonant vibrations come from.
Selecting a fractional-hp dc motor is easier and faster if you know how to handle a pair of motor constants. So here's the lowdown on the motor constant (Km) and torque constant(Kt), and how they relate to getting the right motor.
The ERN 1000 and 1100 Series of low-profile incremental rotary encoders with block commutation tracks are suitable for small-dimensioned servomotors. The encoders feature opto-ASIC-based photoelectric scanning with integrated interpolation. The device's electrical output at TTL levels with differential signals let them connect to most standard subsequent electronics for control of digitally controlled servomotors (up to edge lengths of 40 and 55 mm).
The new WX gearhead is available with two 33-A permanent-magnet dc (PMDC) motors. The high-torque gearhead is designed to drive applications such as conveyor systems, packaging equipment, metering pumps, medical devices, commercial appliances, and solar-powered outdoor equipment.

Realistic User Productivity Comparisons for Upgrade Decision Making
AutoCAD® users can appreciate the rock-solid dependable performance they demand from HP and Intel® processor-based workstations. The Intel® Core™ and Xeon® processor-based workstation portfolio includes a wide range of machines that fit multiple user segments, from entry, mobile, essential, and digital workbench users.
Return on Innovation: Making Individuals More Productive
The value proposition for equipping technical and creative professionals has drastically changed. The unprecedented combination of economic pressure and technological advancement has rewritten the rules of how to do more with less. Teams may forego new hires or do the same work with fewer staff, yet they can avail themselves to new tools and techniques. The challenge then becomes how to equip these valuable and fewer number of professionals to be more productive and innovative.

Time: 2:00pm ET/11:00am PT
Original Equipment Manufacturers rely on the success of their components. In order to meet or exceed final product requirements, engineers and buyers must develop a strategic partnership with their component suppliers who will help them navigate complex domestic and international standards, agency compliance, environmental regulations and mechanical, electrical, ergonomic, aesthetic requirements and often times government contracting. The sheer volume of related information represents a significant technical burden for engineers and buyers and contract administrators. Northwire’s engineers have created a technical course to enhance your competitive advantage.
