Conventional switches usually reach either a low precision or the stopping distance is too short, so that the switch can be easily destroyed while setting the axis. The assembly is also usually time consuming.
At Mocontronic, our passion is specializing machines to our customers’ needs. We build custom products from full-size CNC tables all the way down to circuit boards. Today, we would like to show you one of the smaller customized items we created – a shaft for an electric motor.
Some of the more simple modifications we do on motor shafts include, for example, shortening the shaft so that it fits perfectly in a specific machine. In this case, we cut a flat section out of the motor shaft, creating what is often called a “D-cut.” [Read more…]
Today, we present our newest motor controller: the IKS-32 SEAL. This stepper motor controller is an intelligent compact controller which is able to maneuver 3 axes. The compact Trinamik chips used in this model make it possible for the motor controller to be no larger than a bar of chocolate. This has to do with the fact that these chips produce very little heat and therefore it does not require a heatsink and fan assembly.
Applications include laboratory equipment, 3D printers, compact CNC machines, and lighting and camera positioning systems. The types of movements are similar, in fact, to the action of turning on a water faucet by hand, but with computer-controller automation and precision. The motor controller is only limited by the number of axes and the current draw.
