Product Pipeline Revealed At ATX West

Here at the ATX Show, we’ve been fielding a ton of questions about our upcoming products and ways to push the envelope with our current products. So we thought we’d reveal a few things that we have in pre-production or testing. ServoBelt Gets Heavy. A heavy-duty version of our ServoBelt linear axis is coming soon. Called the SB10, it’s capable of handling accelerated loads up to 750 lb, versus 150 lb for the original ServoBelt under typical load conditions. The extra load-bearing capability is evident throughout the SB10’s construction, right down to a beefier belt with a 10-mm tooth pitch–or…

Affordable Precision Motion At ATX West

This week at the ATX West Show in Anaheim, we’re showing a line-up of our latest automation systems, including innovative linear and rotary stages for precision motion applications that would otherwise require expensive linear or direct-drive motors. Here’s a look at some of the systems on display: ServoBelt Rotary. ATX marks the first showing of our newest stage, which puts ServoBelt’s proven belt technology to work in rotary applications. With its large through-hole and geometric accuracy of  2.5μm TIR or better  at any point on the stage, the ServoBelt Rotary can take the place of  pricey direct-drive motors. Resolution for this new…

ServoBelt Linear Drive

Bell-Everman is announcing the availability of the innovative ServoBelt linear drive, which provides belt-drive economy with screw-drive servo responsiveness, accuracy and repeatability, and linear motor-drive speed. At the heart of the technology is a static bonded lower belt that meshes with the upper dynamic belt so that the active belting under tension is only a few inches long. Servo tuning can have much higher gains than conventional belts, because stiffness is high and does not change throughout the travel. Featuring anodized aluminum construction with stainless steel hardware along with high performance polyurethane/steel reinforced belt, ServoBelt reaches accelerations in excess of 4g…
