The BLMFS5 Series flat linear motors from Aerotech provide 25% more power in an equivalent envelope than traditional models.This is achieved through a proprietary process and laminated iron-core design.
According to the companys press release, the moving forcer coil assembly contact Hall-effect devices and a thermal sensor and is a compact, reinforced, ceramic epoxy structure. The forcer utilizes steel laminations to produce more force for a given forcer coil length than traditional designs, probiding higher performance with continuous force ratings to 377 N (85 lb.) and peak force ratings up to 1,500 N (399 lb).This makes it suitable for high speed, point-to-point motion applications that require high continuous and peak force ratings but also require a low profile solution. In addition, the attraction force generated from the steel lamination can also be used as a bearing pre-load.
Motors offer high peak force in its standard configuration and are available with higher power magnets that can be used to increase output force.
Suitable for any application requiring high levels of positioning resolution and accuracy in a low profile package, the motors have stackable magnet tracks.
