Linear Motor Magnetic Tracks
By DE StaffMotion Control Machine Building
ETEL’s MWD+ magnetic tracks boost performance of company’s LMG/LMS linear motors.
ETEL has introduced its MWD+, a track with stronger magnets for the company’s existing LMG and LMS linear motors that enables up to 15% higher continuous and peak forces, the company says. All MWD+ magnetic tracks share the same physical profile as their MWD counterparts. Because of this, a user can increase performance by either upgrading to MWD+ or going from the LMG to an LMS motor which has extra height but otherwise shares the same mechanical profile and magnet tracks. Both of these options allow ETEL component users to increase the performance of a system with minimum mechanical changes.
