MCL ironless linear motors position small masses extremely precisely and with high synchronism. The difference to the iron-core variant is the ironless structure of the primary component with the completely encapsulated three-phase copper winding. The U-shaped secondary component (MCS) contains the permanent magnets and encloses the primary component (MCP). Due to this design, neither attraction forces nor detent forces occur between the primary and secondary components and the force constant is linear. These aspects, in combination with the relatively small moving mass of the primary component, allow a very high dynamism with highest precision at the same time. The compact design offers different fastening planes on the primary and secondary components and thus provides the greatest possible freedom in the design. The linear motors are optionally equipped with a Hall sensor for position detection for initial commutation.
Typical applications are applications in which small masses have to be moved very precisely at maximum possible cycle rates. These include pick-and-place machines in semiconductor technology as well as used in general automation. Due to the very high synchronous running quality of the motors, they are also predestined for use in measuring and testing machines.
