ETEL has introduced the MWD+ magnet-track family.
The MWD+ is compatible with existing LMG and LMS linear motors from ETEL, and delivers up to 15 per cent higher continuous and peak forces compared to the existing MWD product.
The option of more powerful magnets means users can boost the performance of their LMG or LMS linear motors without needing to do any redesigns. All MWD+ magnetic tracks share the same physical profile as their MWD counterparts, so a user can easily increase performance by upgrading to MWD+ or going from the LMG to an LMS motor which has extra height but otherwise shares the same mechanical profile and magnet tracks. Both of these options allow ETEL component users to increase the performance of a system with minimum mechanical changes.
As part of the Heidenhain Group, ETEL now offers this MWD+ with benefits that translate into higher force density per unit volume, allowing either to improve the overall duty cycle or to run a given duty cycle at lower temperatures.
