Compact design, high degree of protection and enormous maximum forces – these are the characteristics with which MLF synchronous linear motors meet the challenges of machine tools. Together with the low force ripple, these motors are ideal for fast movement of large masses in rough environments. Due to the complete encapsulation with titanium-alloyed stainless steel sheet, the motors are suitable for use in the immediate machining area of machine tools. Practical sizes in standard encapsulations or thermal encapsulation for minimal heat input into the machine are available. The combination of several linear motors – whether in series or parallel – leads to completely new machine concepts with significantly increased machining forces.
An MLF linear motor consists of one MLP primary part (coil) and one or more MLS secondary parts (magnetic plates).
