Absolute encoders: Simplified machine design, increased efficiency
With the ongoing trend of integrating more components into single units, the addition of absolute encoders can eliminate sensors and reduce machine startup time, increasing efficiency while lowering cost.
Linear motion using stepper-based linear actuators: Part 1: Linear Actuator styles
Stepper motor linear actuators are an optimal choice when converting rotary torque to linear force. The construction of these actuators allow for new designs that are more compact and reliable by replacing conventional system mechanicals such as rack and pinion sets, belt and pulley systems and pneumatic air cylinders with electric motor actuators.
