Aerotech’s “U-channel” and “flat” brushless linear servomotors have proven ideal for robots, actuators, tables/stages, fiber optics/photonics alignment and positioning, assembly, machine tools, semiconductor equipment, electronic manufacturing, vision systems and in many other industrial automation applications. Aerotech linear motors are direct drive and consist of a noncontacting forcer coil 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.
