The Drives & Motion Division of Yaskawa America, Inc. is pleased to announce the introduction of Sigma Trac II series linear servo motors stages to the Sigma-7 servo family.

Sigma Trac II combines a Yaskawa SGLF2 series linear motor with linear bearings, high resolution absolute optical scale, cable management, and optional bellows to create a turnkey linear stage. Leveraging the industry-leading performance of Sigma-7 servo amplifiers, system designers and automation end users can design smaller, faster, more accurate linear motion systems for additive manufacturing, packaging, material handling, machining, and assembly applications.

Features include:

  • Peak force output up to 540 N
  • Speeds up to 5 m/s
  • High reliability with 10 million double-stroke design life
  • Absolute encoder feedback with 9.765 nm resolution
  • Zero maintenance
  • Integrated cable management
  • Stroke lengths up to 1340 mm
  • Optional bellows and X-Y adapter kit

“Our expertly designed, manufactured, and tested mechatronic solutions can reduce your time-to-market”, stated Bryan Knight, Linear and Direct Drive Product Marketing Manager. “This new linear stage design will allow machine builders to create innovative mechanisms that are smaller and faster than ever before.”  By using the latest linear motor and magnet technology, Yaskawa has packed more performance in a smaller, lighter linear motor. When combined with Sigma-7 servo amplifiers, Sigma Trac II linear motor stages provide short settling time for greater repeatability in highly dynamic movements that are typical in packaging, assembly, and additive manufacturing applications. Sigma Trac II stages are available in 3 coil sizes and 13 base lengths, making it is easy to select the optimal linear servo motor stage for your application.

Cost Saving With VFDBy Elmir Rahimpour, Former Automation & Integration Specialist, WEG Canada

In conventional applications, pumps or fan should be run at full speed, then pressure or flow should be controlled with a control valves hence some energy will be wasted when you throttling control valves. One of the major usages of VFD is cost saving through energy saving.

But we want to look from different angle of cost saving which is capital saving through removing some instrumentation and control valves and utilize VFD with built-in PLC.
