Thanks for stopping by to watch Scott Equipment Company’s video demonstrating the movements of a Linmot Motor. Linmot linear motors employ a direct electromagnetic principle. Electromagnetic force provides direct linear movement without the use of cams, gears, belts, or other mechanical devices. The engine consists of only two parts: The slider and the stator. The slider is made of neodynium magnets in a high precision stainless steel tube. In the stator are the motor windings, the bearing for the slider, the position detection and temperature sensors for thermal monitoring of the motor. Our demonstration shows how the Linmot motor is controlled through a HMI/PLC configuration. We’ve programmed 8 different movements to show you how you can leverage the Linmot motor. As you watch us go through the sequences, notice how the slider is programmed to move at different lengths and speeds. Machine design engineers have found numerous situations where linear direct drives provide distinct advantages over pneumatic actuators. These include: If more than two end positions are needed, if the positions are to be changed by software, if running synchronously with a main drive is required or the dynamics/life of a pneumatic cylinder is simply no longer sufficient. Due to the high operating costs of pnuematic cylinders, linear motors may also prove to be a cost efficient alternative in simple point to point motions even with only two end positions. Please feel free to contact Scott Equipment Company with any Linmot Motor questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
