Reduce friction in machine-guard doors


The word ‘hybrid’ is used in engineering to describe a system where two technologies are combined together. igus® has now achieved this with a completely new type of cost-effective hybrid linear bearing that both rolls and slides.

The new hybrid bearing, DryLin® WJRM, was developed with the goal of reducing driving force, especially in applications involving the manual adjustment of machine-guard doors, partitions and adjustable locks, or for light handling tasks. For this purpose, igus took the advantages unique to sliding and rolling movements and combined them.

Long Stroke Actuator


H2W has released NCM Actuators that are available from stock with strokes up to 3 inches, and longer strokes are available upon request. Although Voice Coil Actuators are traditionally shorter strokes, H2W now offers longer stroke actuators from stock. The moving magnet style actuator is provided with supplied internal bushings and a hardened steel shaft. H2W currently stocks actuators up to 3 inches of stroke, and has built moving magnet actuators with a stroke as long as 5 inches, and up to 12 inches can be built upon request.

XY / XYZ Nanopositioning Stage for Super-Resolution Microscopy


Auburn, MA, PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P. -- the inventor of Piezo-Z focusing systems—has added two new multi-axis stages for super-resolution microscopy applications, providing highly accurate motion with sub-nanometer resolution over travel ranges of 200 µm in XY and XYZ.

For all Major Microscopes: Leica, Nikon, Olympus, Zeiss The new PI nano1x3 ™ series XY and XYZ nanopositioning stages are designed for inverted microscopes from the four major players Leica, Nikon, Olympus and Zeiss. The low profile design of 20 mm (0.8”) facilitates the integration.

IDEA Drive - Programmable Actuator with Graphic User Interface


Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions introduces the Haydon IDEA™ Drive stepper motor linear actuator. The IDEA Drive is an integrated linear actuator, electronic drive, and control unit fully programmable with an easy-to-use patent pending GUI (Graphic User Interface). Programming the actuator is through the use of on-screen buttons instead of complicated proprietary programming languages.

A unique benefit of the IDEA Drive GUI is the automatic population of the motor and drive parameters based on entering the actuator part number when prompted by the user interface.

Smooth guidance - Linear guidance in the food industry


A cutting machine’s in-feed uses pillow blocks from the igus® DryLin® linear range on its guidance mechanism used to center blocks of cheese weighing up to 187 pounds.

The arms of this centralizing unit are mounted on the pillow blocks and then guided smoothly up from beneath a conveyor. The position of the guides means they are subjected to severe washdowns, are potential bacteria traps and inaccessible for maintenance.

Multi-axis Crossed Roller Positioning Stages Designed for Harsh Environments


H2W has released a number of custom designed Multi-axis Crossed Roller Positioning Stages, or XRS, capable of producing high speeds in unique motion profiles. The photo above shows a XRS designed to operate at -200C. The XR Positioning Stage is a compact, small cross section open or enclosed positioning stage for short stroke linear servo applications (up to 12 inch stroke). It is driven by either an iron core or ironless core 3-phase brushless linear motor and guided by 2 sets of parallel cross roller bearings. The dual parallel rail sets offer excellent load carrying capability.
