Moticont has added two new linear DC motors to its LCVM series of linear voice coil motors.

The newest additions to the LVCM series share the same physical dimensions – each is 50.8 mm (2 in) in diameter and the housings are 127 mm (5 in) long. Features of these efficient, high acceleration/deceleration, low inertia, clean, zero cogging, brushless voice coil motors makes them ideal for: sorting, packaging, sampling, work holding and clamping, laser machining and drilling, scanning laser beam steering and filtering, wafer handling, and medical and pharmaceutical applications.

For applications requiring a longer stroke, the LVCM-051-127-02 features a stroke of 44.5 mm (1.75 in) with a continuous force of  61.5 N (13.8 lbs) and a peak force of 194.4 N (43.7 lbs). In comparison, the LVCM-051-127-03 has a higher continuous force of 99.5 N (22.4 lbs) and a peak force of 314.5 N (70.7 lbs) and a stroke length of 25.4 mm (one inch) for applications with a higher force to size ratio.

Both the LVCM-051-127-02 and the LVCM-051-127-03 feature very high accuracy and repeatability when operated as a DC servo motor in a closed servo loop. Each linear motor also features two 10-32 UNC-2B threaded mounting holes in the housing and two 10-32 UNC-2B threaded mounting holes in the coil end on 25.4 mm (1 in) centres for integration into new and existing applications.


A complete plug-and-play system including an encoder and servo controller is also available.
