The ironless MCL linear motors position small masses with utmost precision and maximum synchronization. The difference to the iron-based variant is the ironless construction of the primary component with the fully cast three-phase copper winding. The U-shaped secondary component contains the permanent magnets and encloses the primary component. This structure means that there is no attraction or latching forces between the primary and secondary component, and the force constant is linear. These aspects, combined with the relatively small moving mass of the primary component, allow very high dynamics and precision simultaneously. The compact design provides different mounting planes of primary and secondary component and therefore maximum available space in the design. Optionally, the linear motors are equipped with a hall unit for position detection for the first commutation. Typical application possibilities of ironless linear motors are applications where small masses must be moved very precisely at maximum possible clock rates. Among other things, this includes pick-and-place equipment in semiconductor production or pick-and-place units in general automation. The very high quality of synchronization of the motors means that they are also predestined for use in measuring and testing machines.
