Self-locking, Non-Magnetic and Easy to Integrate: Piezo-Based Linear Drive for Automation Technology


Linear direct drives have advantages over rotating electric motors for rectilinear motions in automation technology because the latter always have to use a spindle to convert the driving force into translational motion. An often undesirable aspect of conventional linear motors is that they are not self-locking and thus require holding currents which are associated with heat dissipation, high energy consumption and “positional jitter”. Piezo-based linear drives offer a solution here.

Build it or Buy it: The Advantages of a Pre-engineered Sub-assembly Product Over a Component System


When constructing a linear guide system, the first choice is selecting what type of product to use: a pre-engineered sub-assembly (such as the Uni-Guide) or a component system (such as Profile Rail Technology [PRT]). Both have clear advantages and disadvantages; a component system allows the designer to tailor-fit the system to the application; however a pre-engineered sub-assembly product can save thousands on pre-installation costs: time to design, selection, research and planning.
