ETEL Introduces the LMS -- a High-Force Ironcore Linear Motor

SCHAUMBURG, IL--(Marketwired - January 07, 2014) - ETEL is proud to introduce the latest in linear motor technology, the LMS ironcore linear motor series. Boasting a patented anti-cogging design, these linear motors offer a significant advantage for thermal-drift-sensitive precision machines, and are the perfect solution for many demanding motion control applications.

With this introduction, ETEL broadens its already sizeable linear motor offering, simultaneously providing a product with substantially higher continuous force than its existing LMG linear motor series. And since the mechanical integration is similar with both series, easy upgrades are now possible.

The extension of ETEL's ironcore linear motor range opens new application potential in many different markets, from high-end automation to demanding semiconductor / electronic motion systems. The LMS series can be used in any machines where a high power density is required together with a high dynamic for mid-range moving masses.

And because of the anti-cogging design, the new LMS linear motors enable an exceptional peak force density in the magnetic gap, as well as unparalleled thermal efficiency, again important for thermal-drift-sensitive machines.

The LMS series boasts continuous force up to 664 N, peak force up to 2'760 N with speeds up to 15 m/s.

Other outstanding characteristics include:

  • Compact design
  • Low force ripple
  • 600VDC compliant and much more.

ETEL S.A. is based in Switzerland with exclusive North American distribution through HEIDENHAIN Corporation in Schaumburg, IL. As a leading international supplier of direct drive and motion control components and integrated systems, ETEL supports high tech industry with linear motors, torque motors, positioning stages, and motion controllers/systems.
