New ServoBelt™ Rotary and More At ATX West

The latest addition to our ServoBelt Rotary (SBR) line will debut at the ATX West 2011 Show in Anaheim, Calf., February 8 – 11. The new SBR 50 packs all the advantages of the original SBR 100 into a smaller package that makes it a cost-effective alternative to direct-drive motors in precision, light-duty rotary positioning applications. The new SBR features a through hole of 50 mm, half that of the original SBR but still very large for its overall size. Like the larger SBR 100, which will also be on display at the show, the new model offers a geometric accuracy of 2.5μm TIR or better at any point on the stage and a resolution of 16 arc-sec with a repeatability of ±40 arc-sec. SBR 50 has a gear reduction of 2.68:1.

Other Bell-Everman automation products on display at the show will include:

  • ServoBelt Linear. Our ServoBelt linear axis technology will be on display in both a 3-meter dual-carriage version and a Cartesian pick-and-place robot built around a pair of ServoBelts. Read more about the ServoBelt Linear here or download the technical specs.
  • Direct Drive Rotary Stages. Our DDT rotary stages will be shown in sizes that highlight its low-profile, large through-hole and accuracy. The DDT100S, for example, measures just 50 mm high and 100 mm across, making it easy integrate into OEM machine designs. It offers a geometric accuracy of 1.5mm TIR or better anywhere on stage. Download the specs here.
  • KAOS OEM. Thanks to its low moving mass and inherent stiffness, this two-axis Cartesian servo stage offers fast accelerations–up to 2g continuous and over 5g peak–with a minimum investment in linear motor force. Read more about the award-winning KAOS here or download the technical specs.
  • LowBoy ServoNut. With a geometric accuracy of 10μm TIR or better at any point on the stage, this affordable low-profile ball-screw drive targets metrology and light- to medium-heavy mechanical processes. Axial repeatability is 2μm with 1μm encoder. The LowBoy ServoNut is highly configurable with a range of chassis and stage mounting options.

All these systems and more are up and running under full power, so you can see them in action if you stop by our booth (#4544).
