Nowadays, a wide variety of products are manufactured and inspected in fully automated processes. Fast and precise linear movements are a requirement and ideally the movements should be sensitive and controlled. This is what the new linear motor slides ELAX® from Jenny Science make possible. The magenetic direct drive linear motor allows to precisely complete and control movements at the same time. Thanks to the sensitive force registration the linear motor controls, monitors and limits forces in processes and recognizes process errors automatically.

With the XENAX® Xvi 75V8 servo controller and the optional PROFINET busmodule, it is possible to move the Jenny Science linear motors LINAX® with a PROFINET Controller.

No matter if cyclic syncronized mode IRT with Siemens SIMOTION or positioning mode with Siemens SIMATIC, the compatible XENAX® offers indivual solutions in your familiar programming environment.

This ultra-compact X-Y application with two LINAX® Lxs linear motor axes and a rotary linar motor on the top simulates the frame inspection of a smart phone case. It is a new approach to move the product rather than the camera.

As this X-Z Pick and Place Handling demonstrates, these highly compact LINAX® Lxc linear motor axes are not only dynamic and precise but also clean room compliant.

This highly dynamic pick and place system consists of two LINAX® Lxc linear motors which are directly screwed together. The weight compensation on the vertical linear motor axis prevents an abrupt move down in case of power-interruption and relieves the linear motor of its payload.

Our LINAX® linear motors can be directly screwed together slider to slider, for example for dynamic gantry systems. In this gantry application the interpolated motion is programmed with our XENAX® servo controllers and a superior PLC.

These compact LINAX® linear motor application is controlled with a PLC from B&R over Powerlink. With this optional bus module, our XENAX® ethernet servo controller enables the user to control his/her application in the familiar programming environment.

Two Linax linear motor axes are arranged one directly above the other. Thereby the lower linear motor axis is integrated at an angle. Through appropriate interpolation via the UNAX axis interpolator it becomes possible to perform a vertical movement. 

Basically any required geometry on the XZ-plane can be produce in this way.
If there is a power failure, the Z-plane travels downwards with no risk of collision.

The universal robot for fluid dosage was built up with 3 LINAX® linear motor axes. The 3 axes are each controlled by one XENAX® Ethernet servo controller.  The XENAX® servo controllers have different IP-addresses and can be thus controlled from a computer through a conventional Ethernet switch.

The vertical linear motor axis operaties with pneumatixc mass compensation. With a small pressurestat the compensation force can be adjusted steplessly.

This robot is programmed for microtiter plates with 384 wells in a 16 x 24 grid. The dosage head consist of 8 parallel-switched magnetic valves. This way all 384 wells can be "filled" in one single to and from movement.

The X-linear motor axis travels at a constant speed across the microtiter plate. The special challenge lies in the real-time control of the valves during the run. This precise timing results directly from the powerful processing of the UNAX® axis interpolator.

The handling machine consists of a total of 9 LINAX® linear axes. Various small plastic parts are automatically assembled and laser labelled. They are controlled with a WAGO SPS via Ethernet TCP/IP by means of a switch to the XENAX® Ethernet servo controllers.

The modular laboratory platform allows biologists and chemists to apply new technologies within the shortest possible time. The process module library, which works with components from different vendors, plays the key role here.For the vertical movement of the modular LINAX linear axes with mass compensation have been used. Thanks to its compact dimensions the XENAX® servo controller could also be "packed" directly into the process modules.

Two LINAX linear motor axes are directly positioned with dowel pins in an XY arrangement and bolted together.The small vertical Z-axis is fixed on to a sturdy "boom".

In standalone iperation, the 3D geometry is stored on the UNAX® axis interpolators. The programming is carried out on the supplied "Motion perfect" tool in a simple BASIC-like syntax. The circle interpolation consists e.g. of only a "one-liner". 

Computer mice need to work on a veriety of surfaces. This puts stringent demands on the optics. Using a compact XY table consisting of 2 stacked LINAX® linear motor axes the optimal parameters for the optical mudule are determined.

The linear motor axes are controlled with a PC via Ethernet TCP/IP connection to both XENAX® servo controllers.

The Fraunhofer Institute breaks new ground in nonliter dosage. In this process the liquid is "pulsed" thorugh a fine hole only a few micrometres wide. Due to capillary axtion of the fluid no closing valve is necessary. Using the upsie down XY linear motor axes the utrasonic impulse-head is guided to te "fluid sources" and the dosage is triggered. If mnow the "target microtiter plate" is also positioned in the XY direction, each "well" can be individually and flexibly dosed.

Simple design of the portal robot with a LINAX® Lxe 400F40 as X-axis. Vertically mounted on this with an adapter plate the Lx 176F40 as the Y-axis. Using centering pins the Z-axis Lx 85F10 with mass compensation is directly screwed to the Y-axis.

Each axis is connected to an XENAX® Ethernet servo controller. The 3D space curves are stored in the superordinate UNAX® axis interpolator. The process is started with an input pulse. Alternatively, the UNAX® axis interpolator could be flexibly controlled via instruction set from a PC or a  PLC.

The semi-automatic machine inserts single pins into a connector housing. Here, the "solder slot" is captured by the camera and aligned before placement of the pin. The machines had to be bzilt up in a space-saving manner. The compact LINAX® linear motor axes were predestined for this. These precisly move the connector housing to the pin position. All axes, including the rotary ones, are controlled by XENAX® Ethernet servo controllers.
