Optimised Motion Series

Optimised Motion Series

Optimised Motion Series: low-cost with optimised performance

A package that makes moving and positioning easier than ever before while being significantly cheaper than conventional electrical solutions.

In the package: motor controller (drive system) with servolite technology including suitable cabling

Everything has a unique type code, making it easy to configure and order the right size and combination. This reduces the workload in your purchasing department and saves time, because the individual parts no longer have to be assembled.

Plus: quick parameterisation and commissioning thanks to web server/browser concept

Product in OMS at a glance

Electric cylinder EPCO

Electric cylinder EPCO

Making positioning easy and dynamic with the electric cylinder EPCO. It has a ball screw drive and non-rotating, plain-bearing piston, and always has a permanently mounted, perfectly tuned motor. The optional guide unit makes it even more powerful.

  • Available in 3 sizes with strokes of up to 400 mm
  • Optional guide unit with recirculating ball bearing guide with high load bearing capacity for absorbing lateral forces and protection against torsion at high torques
  • Always with permanently fitted, optimally tuned motor and flexible, freely selectable 4 x 90 motor connection
  • Cost-optimised controlled operation without encoder or controlled servo operation with encoder
  • Optional proximity sensor for homing or position sensing

Toothed belt axis ELGR

Toothed belt axis ELGR

The application-optimised toothed belt axis ELGR in cost-optimised design is ideal for applications with comparatively low requirements in terms of mechanical load, dynamic response and precision. The flexibility of the ELGR, as well as its diverse range of uses make it ideal for simple applications requiring cost-effective solutions.

  • Available in 3 sizes for payloads of up to 6.8 kg
  • Long service life at an operating performance of 5,000 km
  • The motor position is freely selectable at both ends of the axis and can be retrofitted at any time
  • Optional end-position sensing by inductive proximity sensors with a repetition accuracy of ±50 μm (radial)

Rotary drive ERMO

Rotary drive ERMO

The rotary drive ERMO is the ideal complete solution for rotating and aligning parts and workpieces. Thanks to the very precise, backlash-free ball bearing, it is particularly suitable for high loads, and can also be used as a simple rotary indexing table, e.g. at manual workstations.

  • ERMO is notable for its very long service life of over 5 million cycles.
  • Sealed hollow shaft for the through-feed of energy or sensor cables or tubing
  • Optional energy through-feed for continuous turning
    – pneumatic, e.g. for grippers
    – electric, e.g. for sensors or for transmitting IO-Link® signals
  • The motor can be rotated 3 x 90° during installation and the position can be changed at any time
  • Adjustable swivel angle up to max. 270° with external mounting kit
