  appliedStepSERVO Integrated Motor Design

Providing High Torque at Low Speeds

 is the next evolution in step motor technology. Starting with a proven integrated motor design, we add a high-resolution 5000 line incremental encoder (20,000 counts/rev) and closed-loop servo firmware to create a motor that offers the best step motor performance available today.  StepSERVO motors offer the same high torque-at-low-speed and excellent holding torque characteristics of open loop stepping motors with the advantages of true closed-loop control.
  • Closed-loop servo control using high torque step motors 
  • High acceleration for faster machine cycles and greater productivity
  • Energy efficient, cool running
  • All-in-one compact solution
  • IP65 versions for wet and dusty environments
  • Stand-alone operation (stored Q programming)
  • EtherNet/IP, CANopen and Modbus/RTU options

 svlSVL Sheds Light on Verifying Laser-Cut parts

SCC75 Brick Light Illuminates an Alphanumeric Code

Companies that supply laser-cut metal parts often use line-scan cameras with unique lighting configurations to check the quality of their products. 

In a recent Vision Systems Design article, Smart Vision Lights SCC75 Brick Light®illuminates an alphanumeric code so the camera can capture an image clear enough for the manufacturer to complete the all-important task of comparing the code against its database to ensure it is using the correct part .

  d40Omron NX1P Entry-level Controllers

Makes Small-Midsize Production Machines More Productive and Smarter

The entry-level Machine Automation Controller NX1P leverages their expertise in advanced fine-tuning control to improve the performance of small and middle sized production machines.  The NX1P comes equipped with the built-in EtherCAT port and controls up to eight servo systems. Motion control for up to four synchronized axes increases machine speed and precision.
  • EtherNet/IP enables data sharing with a host PC and between controllers on different machines  
  • EtherCAT connects I/O devices, motion devices, vision systems, and safety controllers with a single cable
  • IO-Link master unit to reduce downtime monitoring sensor data

  densoVS-S2 6-Axis Robots

Medical and Pharmaceutical Robots

VS-050-S2  6-axis robots meet the strict hygienic demands of the medical and pharmaceutical industries. Automation in clean environments prevents the hazards of foreign matter from manual tasks, human error, and operator exposure.

The VS-S2 sooth surface prevents adherence of dust and dirt.  The robot arm is constructed without screws to maintain high sanitary levels. It offers sterility control for use in sterile environments and clean environments that employ H202 has 35% density (dry/wet) and UV exposure.
