LG Motion will be showcasing new high-precision linear and rotary tables from its own production program, as well as new positioning components from distribution partners, at Southern Manufacturing 2011.
In particular, LG Motion will be showing the range of very competitively priced moving coil linear slide actuators from SMAC Europe Ltd. These are claimed to be unique in that force, position and speed can eb programmed independently. They are designed to perform at exceptionally high speeds or very low speeds and with sub-micron accuracy and repeatability. The LAS series has a standard positioning resolution from 5 microns down to just 0.1 microns and stroke lengths up to 100mm. The range can replace lead screw, ball screw or linear motor-driven actuator technologies for automated high-speed, precision positioning for pick-and-place, parts feeding, scanning, photonics, component testing and precision measurement applications in both industrial and research environments.
In addition, LG Motion will highlight a selection of motion control components from other distribution partners, including linear bearings from Schneeberger, specialist motors from Empire Magnetics and high-precision linear and rotary encoders from Heidenhain.
LG will also demonstrate its ability to create custom designs and manufacture complete automation and motion control systems in-house.
