LinMot, represented in Australia by Birrer Industries, announces that their innovative line of industrial grade linear motors have received clean room certification by Germany's Fraunhofer Institute for Class 1 Cleanliness according to US Federal Standard 209E.
LinMot's unique line of linear motors are the first designed specifically for industrial applications and are engineered to provide completely new linear motion capabilities. Features include: Digital control and regulation; Programmable path curves; Decentralized intelligence; and Fieldbus coupling. Additionally, they are intrinsically free from mechanical play, gearing or beltwear, and provide long life, low system cost and simple handling by virtue of their integrated sensing and bearings.
These linear motors are a suitable replacement or supplement to conventional linear motion technologies such as stepper motors, servo motors, mechanical cams, pneumatic cylinders and mechanical levers. They are engineered for a variety of industrial applications, including: Textile machinery; Packaging machines; Handling machinery; Robotics; and Laboratory automation.
LinMot is a division of Sulzer Electronics, a subsidiary of the $4 billion Sulzer Corporation. Headquartered in Winterthur Switzerland, Sulzer Corporation is a world leader in the design and manufacture of products for the industrial control, turbine, pump and medical fields.
