IntelLiDrives Planar XY table offers the unique capability to operate two axes of motion in one plane with one motor. These systems designed to replace conventional compounded XY table systems where one axis is being carried by another. As a result, with Planar XY table greater reliability and performance is realized through design simplification and elimination of wear-prone components.
Planar XY table consists of moving element called forcer which glides on the frictionless air bearings over special "waffle-like "surface called platen. Planar forcer contains two or four linear motoring modules oriented 90 degrees to each other. As motoring modules respond to varying currents, forcer moves across the platen to produce continuous linear motion. Forcers can also be controlled in translation and rotation modes to perform XY and theta (couple degrees) motions. For large rotational capability planar forcers can be integrated with RTH rotary tables and with Z lift motors.
Planar forcers are compatible with standard micro-stepping drives and indexers. They can also be equipped with IntelLiCoder feedback and driven as a commutated brushless motor.
Planar XY table can operate in any orientation (side wall, upside-down).
Multiple forcers can be installed and operated independently on a single platen for high throughput and flexibility in many robotic automation applications.
