Dec. 4, 2020
Motion-control device also is for haptic feedback in medical instruments; work holding and clamping; packaging; scanning; and pharmaceutical uses.

VAN NUYS, Calif. – MotiCont in Van Nuys, Calif., is introducing the LVCM-016-010-01 linear voice coil actuator for laser machining and drilling; laser beam steering and filtering; vibration damping; and wafer handling.

The LVCM-016-010-01 linear actuator is a miniature brushless DC servo actuator with high acceleration and deceleration and low inertia. Clean with zero cogging, and efficiency.

The power electronics device also is for haptic feedback in medical and surgical instruments; assembly; work holding and clamping; sorting; packaging; sampling; scanning; and pharmaceutical applications.

At 0.625 inches in diameter it is smaller than a penny and the length at mid-stroke it is 0.63 inches, which is less than a stack of 12 pennies. This miniature voice coil actuator has a continuous force of 5.9 ounces; a peak force of 18.6 ounces; and features a 0.125-inch stroke.

The LVCM-016-010-01 features high accuracy and repeatability when operated as a DC servo actuator in a closed servo loop using a position sensor.

Each end of linear actor has two 2-56 UNC-2B threaded mounting holes in the housing and two 2-56 UNC-2B threaded mounting holes in the coil end on 0.250-inch centers.
