A high-performance, two-phase, linear stepper motor from H2W Technologies (Valencia, CA) provides 1 micron [0.00004 in.] resolution and travels at 80 in/sec. [2 m/sec.]. It can operate in any axis, and features 1 G acceleration.
Ideal for open loop positioning applications with light payloads, the motor can also operate as a brushless linear servo with 5G acceleration and no loss of accuracy. It can generate 5 lbs. [22.2 N] of continuous force. This single-axis linear stepper has the forcer [motor], bearings and platen [track] integrated into a compact, low-profile package. The forcer connects to the motion control system via flying leads or D connector. The hard chrome plated platen comes in lengths to 144 inches (3.7 m).
