Design Features

  • High velocity to 3 m/s and high acceleration to 3 g
  • High-power linear brushless servomotors
  • Customizable Z and theta axes
  • Noncontact linear encoders
  • Optional machine base and risers

Linear Motor/Linear Encoder

Aerotech's high-performance BLM series brushless linear servomotors drive the AGS10000 to speeds of 3 m/s and accelerations of 3 g. Both single and dual forcer designs are available. Feedback is from a rugged noncontact optical linear encoder. Resolution options range from 5 nm to 1.0 µm. Optimized to account for thermal expansion, the design ensures high accuracy under all operating conditions.

Rugged Design

Since the linear motor is a noncontact device, there is no backlash, wear or maintenance. The bearings are preloaded linear motion guides with wiper seals and grease fittings and are mounted to provide optimized stiffness and load distribution.

Cable Management System

Extensive R&D has resulted in an optimized cable management system (CMS) that has been field proven to be the industry's most reliable design. Large bend radii and high-flex cables ensure that the AGS10000 provides millions of cycles of maintenance-free operation. In the unlikely event of a component failure, a modular design ensures that part replacement is fast and easy.

All customer cabling and pneumatics can be routed through the system e-chain. Connectors are provided at the workpiece and at the opposite end of the e-chain, greatly simplifying final machine integration.

Turnkey Operation

Aerotech's years of experience manufacturing precision positioning and control systems can be leveraged by acquiring a turnkey system. Typical options include Z-theta mechanisms, risers to accommodate automated parts handling equipment and machine bases that are designed to accommodate the entire electronics subsystem.

Aerotech manufactures a wide range of high-performance amplifiers and advanced motion controllers that are optimized for high-performance automation applications.
