The BLMSC linear motor is Aerotech’s smallest “U-channel” linear motor measuring only 37.5mm x 22mm in cross section. With a high power density and force output, the BLMSC is ideally suited for space-constrained applications requiring high-acceleration or high force output.
- Aerotech's smallest linear motor: 37.5mm x 22mm cross section
- Continuous force to 27.7N; peak force to 110.9N
- Non-magnetic forcer coil provides high force with zero cogging for super-smooth velocity and position control
- Ideal for space-constrained applications
The motor consists of a noncontact forcer coil assembly with thermal sensor, optional Hall-effect devices, and “U-channel” magnet track. The design eliminates backlash, windup, wear, and maintenance issues associated with ball-screws, belts, and rack and pinions.
The moving forcer coil assembly is a compact, reinforced ceramic-epoxy structure. The ironless design eliminates cogging and eddy-current losses that otherwise would limit speed and produce additional heat.
These linear motors are ideal for any application that requires high levels of positioning resolution and accuracy. BLMSC series linear motors are forgiving to align, easy to assemble, and keep the magnetic field well-contained. Magnet tracks are stackable for any travel length. They are also suited for cleanroom use as they produce no particulates.
The BLMSC can be driven using standard Aerotech brushless amplifiers and controllers to provide a complete integrated system.
