Moticont (Van Nuys, CA) has added the LVCM-016-010-01 Linear Voice Coil Actuator. At 0.625 in. (15.9 mm) it is smaller in diameter than a penny and the length at mid-stroke it is just 0.63 in. (15.9 mm) long which is less than a stack of 12 pennies. This new miniature voice coil actuator has a continuous force of 5.9 oz (1.6 N) and a peak force of 18.6 oz (5.2 N), and features a 0.125 in. (3.2 mm) stroke. Additionally:
- The LVCM-016-010-01 Linear Actuator is a miniature brushless DC servo actuator which has high acceleration/deceleration and low inertia.
- Clean with zero cogging, and highly efficient, it is ideal for: Haptic feed back in medical/surgical instruments, assembly, work holding and clamping, sorting, laser machining and drilling, packaging, sampling, scanning, laser beam steering and filtering, vibration damping, wafer handling, and pharmaceutical applications.
- The LVCM-016-010-01 Linear Actuator features very high accuracy and repeatability when operated as a DC servo actuator in a closed servo loop using a position sensor.
