Using the OSP-E…BHD and BV belt driven actuators from the Parker Origa System Plus modular concept actuator range, Micromech have created a standard XYZ gantry assembly configurable to suit many applications.
A stepper motor is part of a total mechanism that produces the necessary torque and speed (required load point) to provide motion to a load – to move it, focus it, lift it, inspect it
Watch Now on Demand
R.T.A.’s excellent range of stepper drives is available from Micromech. Apart from being high quality and extremely cost-effective, R.T.A’.s stepper drives offer EtherCat among a host of other features.
When it comes to point-to-point motion in high-speed automated systems, high-performance positioning often comes with a price. Although pick-and-place, inspection, dispensing and scanning machines require micron precision from a linear positioning stage, that level of precision is difficult to find in an economical device.

Are you interested in frameless motors but daunted by the challenge of integrating one into your design? This concern has kept many machine design engineers from embedding these power and torque dense motors into their applications.
A stepper motor is a simple two phase brushless synchronous motor containing a segmented magnetized rotor and a stator consisting of a prescribed number of electromagnetic coils. When energized, these coils create north and south polls that push or pull the segmented magnetized rotor to make it spin.
Thomson precision-formed ball screws with P3 accuracy for precision applications
From the surface of Mars to the depths of the ocean, from the core of the earth to the core of the human body, Kollmorgen motion systems take on the most extreme environments.
The Akribis DGH series is a range of high precision modular direct drive linear slides utilising a direct drive linear motor positioning system.
A servo drive should be selected based on the specific servo motor used in the application. The motion requirements of the driven mechanism determines the voltage and current requirements of the servo motor – the key information required when selecting a servo drive.
The MC404-Z is a low cost panel mount Motion Coordinator, targeting high volume stepper applications. With just one version that has all features as standard, there is no requirement for axis configuration with Feature Codes before use.
Do you need a servo system, or can a more-affordable, easier-to-configure stepper system meet the requirements of one or more axes?
Micromech offers two series of Nippon Pulse high-performance, single-axis linear stages: nanopositioning SCR stages, and Acculine SLP stages. Both series are ideal for small-scale or limited-space applications
A stable servo system is essential for optimal machine performance, durability, safety, and consistent machine performance, which improves overall machine operation. Servo systems operate in various degrees of stability, with a fine line between stable and unstable.
After many years of working at Micromech on our sales team, Alan Spinks is to retire at the end of April.
The new Trio DX4 range of drives and motors is available from Micromech now. The all range new servo drive and motor packages that provide performance and dependability. Optimised in every detail to do more with less and with features to deliver scalable servo-based solutions in demanding motion centric machine automation.
