START FOR A NEW LINEAR MOTOR SERIES FROM DUNKERMOTOREN
With the SL 38 product family, Dunkermotoren, a brand of AMETEK, is presenting the first size of the new linear motor series “ServoLinear”. The SL family impresses with great performance and flexibility.
The strengths of the SL 38 motors lie particularly in their speed, force, and acceleration.
The peak forces of the new linear motors reach up to 3700 N at an acceleration of more than 200 m/s2. Applications that previously used slow spindle motors or inaccurate belt drives can now be driven much faster and more precisely with the new SL 38, thus increasing the application’s output significantly.
To meet the diverse requirements of a wide range of industrial applications, a total of five versions of the SL 38 have been developed. These are all based on the same base motor, which has been adapted to fit the special requirements of the respective application area. Starting with the component, for example, it is installed as a "ready-to-use" module or with an anti-rotation mounting plate in the TwinGuide version. For harsh environmental conditions or for operation in the food industry, the SL 38 is also available in a stainless-steel version. This option has uniform stainless steel surfaces, hexagonal screw connections and special hygienic seals, to guarantee protection classes of up to IP69K.
A special feature available in all versions is the optional water-cooling system, which allows the continuous forces of the motors to be doubled.
The different versions of the SL 38 family allow the ServoLinear product to be used with great flexibility. The high force capabilities are required in fields like special machine construction. The acceleration and high speeds, in turn, ensure shorter cycle times and thus achieve an increase in output. This means that production processes can be carried out much faster and more accurately. Further sizes, e.g. for use under strict installation space specifications, will be added to the ServoLinear series in the near future, covering an even wider performance range.
