Kollmorgen (Radford, VA) has introduced the next
generation of stepper motors, the PMX series, adding
smaller 08, 11, and 14 frame sizes to the traditional 17,
23, and 34 frame size offering. OEMs now have added
flexibility to meet multiple performance and application
needs from a single motion source. Features include:
■ Six frame sizes (08, 11, 14, 17, 23, and 34) each
with several stack length and winding options.
■ Options for 1.8° and 0.9° step angles.
■ CE, RoHS, and REACH compliance.
High Power Density Brush DC Motors
Portescap (West Chester, PA) has introduced the
next generation of Athlonix high power density brush
DC motors. Available in a 22 mm diameter, the 22DCP
motor will feature an energy efficient coreless design
with a self-supporting coil and magnetic circuit, which
delivers maximized power density and sustained
endurance over the life of the motor. Features include:
■ Availability in 2 variations, precious metal commutation
and graphite commutation with Alnico magnet inside.
■ A constant force spring design for carbon brush.
■ An optional REE (Restriction of Electro Erosion) coil.
■ Maximum continuous torque up to 6. 5 mNm.
Bent Axis Motor
Danfoss Power Solutions (Freeport, IL) has
announced the H1B210, a new frame size that
enhances the H1B bent axis motor family (H1B060 –
H1B250). The new frame features a compact design,
higher rotating and acceleration speeds than H1B250,
and integrated controls for improved performance and
reliability. Features include:
■ 32° bent axis technology and zero-degree capability.
■ Availability with DIN and SAE flange.
■ A rated high-speed capability of 3,850 RPM at 20%
■ A maximum working pressure of 450 bar.
■ An integrated loop flushing device.
■ An optional integrated speed sensor.
Level Winding Drive
Amacoil (Aston, PA) now offers an option on Uhing
rolling ring level winding drives which enables users to
spool cable, and other materials, with specific spacing
between rows. The standard drive creates a smooth,
even, level wind with adjacent rows of material. The
option – a set screw inserted into one or both ends
of the drive housing – allows measured spacing of
spooling rows. Features include:
■ Equal spaces between the rows of material being
■ No needed adjustments to motor speed or other
■ No complex electronics or programming needed.
