CNC Design offers the new 1FN6 linear motor; a synchronous linear motor developed by Siemens with a magnet-free secondary section track. The motor features the qualities of a synchronous direct drive such as high precision, outstanding dynamic response, the absence of a need for maintenance, a high force density and low energy losses. At the same time, no permanent magnets are used resulting in a product that is easy to install, inexpensive and robust.
The robust and modular design makes 1FN6 suitable for many applications, including water-jet or laser-beam cutting machines in machine tools. It also specialises in very long traversing axes for handling and linking applications. Any number of secondary sections can be mounted next to each other and several primary sections can be operated on a secondary section track.
