Linear Motors Description:

Aerotech's family of  "U-channel" brushless linear servomotors includes the BLMUC, BLMC, BLM, BLMH, and BLMX series motors. Travel lengths are unlimited due to Aerotech's stackable magnet track system with symmetrical mounting-hole pattern. Continuous force ratings range from 32 N (7 lb) to 1,186 N (266 lb). Peak forces range from 130 N (29 lb) to 4,744 N (1,064 lb).

Aerotech's "U-channel" and "flat" brushless linear servomotors have proven ideal for robots, actuators, tables/stages, fiberoptics/photonics alignment and positioning, assembly, machine tools, semiconductor equipment, electronic manufacturing, vision systems, and in many other industrial automation applications. Aerotech linear motor products are direct drive and consist of a noncontacting forcer and "U-channel" or "flat" rare-earth magnet track. This design eliminates backlash, windup, wear, and maintenance issues associated with ball screw, belt, and rack and pinion based motion control and positioning systems. The noncontact design of the forcer and magnet track results in a maintenance-free system. Aerotech manufactures a complete line of linear motors to meet the needs of your industrial automation application.
