Inertially Optimized Motion Systems For 3D Printing and More At IMTS

Join us at the IMTS Show's Motion Drive and Automation Conference for a presentation on a new motion control system that delivers speed and precision to 3D printing, CNC and metrology applications. Bell-Everman founder Mike Everman will deliver the presentation—called Inertially Optimized Motion Control System Drives New 3D Printertoday, Tuesday, September 9th at 3:10 in McCormick West, Room W190.

New Online Configuration Tool For Sealed Linear Stages

We've just made it easier to configure our new SLS Sealed Linear Stages. Our new online configuration tool allows you to select travel length, drive options and accessories in minutes. And if you're ready for a quote, you can send your configuration to our applications engineering team. We'll have a price back to you within 24 hours.


New Sealed Linear Stage Provides Clean Motion For Dirty Machines

Linear stages in industrial settings often suffer from contamination problems. As manufacturing debris, particulate or liquid contaminants work their way into the stage, they can abrade or gum up the drive mechanism and bearings. Our new SLS Sealed Linear Stage keeps contamination outside the stage housing.

ServoBelt Linear Heavy

ServoBelt™ Heavy Quadruples Maximum Linear Force

From the moment we turned on the first ServoBelt Linear drive, we knew that we had a linear motor killer on our hands. Our non-traditional belt drive offered nearly all the accuracy of a linear motor but cost only a fraction as much money. The one limitation to ServoBelt technology had to do with maximum continuous linear force, which initially topped out at 38 lbf and then increased to 75 lbf.


ServoNut Replaces Linear Motor On Large Format Printer

With all the advances in digital printing technologies in recent years, today's large format printers can create visually stunning signs and displays. Yet even the highest-resolution print mechanism is only as good as the actuator that positions it.

Gandy Digital recognized the crucial role that actuators play when it designed our ServoNut Power Module into the table axis of a groundbreaking new printer called Pred8tor.

ServoBelt™ Rotary Gets Big

New model offers precision positioning for heavier loads

ServoBelt Rotary has become one of our most popular products, thanks to its combination of positioning performance, compact form factor and large through hole. Now even more applications will be able to reap these advantages.

SBR 50

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.


Servonut LowBoy Moves Into Micromachining

Our motion systems are often scaled up for large-format manufacturing applications, but we’ve recently taken our technology in the opposite direction to address miniature manufacturing. Case in point: We’re putting the finishing touches on a new 3-axis motion stage for a vision-guided CNC micromachining system.

ServoBelt™ Rotary Has The Right Moves For Bottle Inspection

Avid Corporation makes good use of ServoBelt™ Rotary’s large through-hole and easy installation in a unique vision inspection system for the packaging industry.

In bottle manufacturing operations, inspection is about more than just quality control. It’s also a matter of productivity since technicians can spend hours collecting bottle weight and dimensional data to ensure that molding machines and tooling are running properly. Avid Corporation has been making that quality data a lot easier to collect for more than two decades.

Custom ServoBelt™

A Smaller ServoBelt™ For Biomedical Machines

ServoBelt is shrinking. And for the makers of biomedical machines and lab automation equipment, smaller really is better.
