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.

Powerflex 755tThere’s a contaminant that has long troubled water and wastewater operations, and you won’t find it in the water.

Harmonic distortion is like a pollutant on a power line. It can cause electrical equipment to act erratically or shut off, resulting in unplanned downtime. And it can frustrate workers by making water treatment systems more difficult to optimize.

The IEEE 519 standard gives industry a target to achieve: a total harmonic distortion of 5% or less. The question is, how do you hit this target with minimal risk or impact to your operations?

ABB Waste To Energy PlantHow can society meet its increasing demand for energy while reducing carbon emissions? Swedish utility Mälarenergi has achieved something significant as it faces this challenge head-on with its waste-to-energy plant Unit 6, one of the biggest in the world.

Mälarenergi’s waste preparation facility, boiler and smoke stack sit alongside Lake Mälaren’s pristine waters. The lake spreads out, still as glass, to the far horizon. On its shore lies Västerås, Sweden’s fifth largest city and home to 150,000 people.
