Zaber is proud to release its new T-G-LSM Gantry Systems


Zaber’s Gantries are designed for multi-axis applications where load and travel requirements exceed the rated cantilever load specs of Zaber’s simpler XY or XYZ systems. In addition, Zaber’s Gantries are designed for use where access is required to the entire area under the system. A synchronized pair of lead-screws provide very low backlash and high stiffness. Zaber’s Gantry systems include a base-plate with a full M6 on 25 mm grid of mounting holes, integrated high flex cable and cable management system.

Electrophysiology: Piezos Enable Faster Solution Switching


Electrophysiological studies require fast motions of a double-bore (theta-glass) pipette across cell membranes. With a cell held in a patch clamp and monitored electrical-ly, one bore of the pipette flows a buffer solution, while the other carries a drug or other chemical. By quickly sweeping the pipette so one bore or the other suffuses the cell, its electrophysiological response can be correlated to the chemical environment.

Zaber offers the G-LSQ Gantry Systems with Controllers


Zaber’s G-LSQ series gantry systems are based on the robust and fast T-LSQ series linear stages. These systems offer a complete turn-key solution including 2 T-MCA controllers, power supplies, and all the accessories needed to operate the system. They are available pre-assembled on a custom breadboard, or as separate components, ready to be integrated into your own setup. The G-LSQ series gantries are designed for multi-axis applications where heavier loads require additional support or where access is required to the area under the system. A coupled leadscrew design provides high stiffness for quick and precise response. These gantries will support loads up to 18 kg and can move at speeds up to 330 mm/s.

Drop-in replacement actuator from Tolomatic improves coolant head positioning accuracy in gear-grinding machine


A powerful and compact Tolomatic RSM rod-style screw actuator is modified to more accurately position a heavy coolant head and improve productivity.

As the company that pioneered the development of the bevel gear used in vehicle differentials, Gleason Corporation demands that its latest automated gear grinding machines be in the forefront of efficient and high-quality gear production. One key to quality is making sure that the work piece is well lubricated and does not become overheated during the grinding process.

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.

T-LST High Load Linear Stages are Computer Controlled


Zaber's T-LST series products are computer controlled motorized linear stages with a variety of lead screw pitches and travels. They are stand-alone units requiring only a standard 48V power supply. A potentiometer knob at the end of the unit permits smooth manual control; turn it fully to get maximum speed. The stages connect to the RS-232 port of any computer and can be chained with up to 254 units per chain. They can also be chained with any other T-Series products. Convenient 6-pin mini din cables on the unit allow for direct interconnection between units in close proximity.
