KSS+MOONS’ High-speed 4-axis pick and place unit provides linear motion of the XYZ axis,...

## Linear Actuators and Typical Application

Linear Actuators A linear actuator is an actuator that creates motion in a straight line, in contrast to the circular motion of a conventional electric motor. Linear actuators are used in machine tools and industrial machinery, in computer peripherals such as disk drives and printers, in valves and dampers, and in many other places where linear motion is required. Hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders inherently produce linear motion. Many other […]

## Screw and Nut about Linear Step Motors

The basic stepper motors are rotated by a magnetic rotor core that interacts with the pulsating stator electromagnetic field generated by the stator. The linear motors combine a screw and a nut to convert the rotary motion into a linear motion. The operation of power screws often seems simple. But making it appear easy is a […]

## Wiring Connections for Linear Step Motors

Operation MOONS’ linear stepper motors are available with 2-coil bipolar windings, bipolar windings motors typically have 4 leads. Bipolar motors have a single winding per phase. The current in a winding needs to be reversed in order to reverse a magnetic pole, so the driving circuit must be more complicated, typically with an H-bridge (an H bridge is an electronic […]

## What is the Difference between a Rotary and a Linear Actuator?

Actuators can be classified into two types based on their motion. Two primary actuator types are rotary and linear. Rotary actuators will turn something a number of degrees in a circle – it might be a limited number or an infinite number.  Linear actuators, in essence, move something along a straight line, usually back and […]

## The Basic Types of Linear Stepper Motors

As a compact linear actuator, linear stepper motors are often used to realize linear motion or linear reciprocating motion. The main principle is through the screws and nuts meshing, adopting some method to prevent screws and nuts relative rotation, to achieve the linear movement of the mechanism. The purpose of this paper is to introduce […]

## How to Select and Install a Coupling?

With the application of servo motors, stepper motors, intelligent motors and ball screws in machine tool and automation, flexible couplings are widely used as a device to transfer torque and protect motors and lead screws. However, most people do not know how to apply the coupling. Cases of unreasonable selection and the incorrect installation often occur, resulting in more and more […]

## What is the Lead and Linear Travel Per Step of Linear Stepper Motors?

Linear stepper motors are offered with a variety of lead-screws, which are designated by their lead. Lead is the distance the nut travels when the lead-screw turns one revolution. For a linear stepper motor, larger leads will make the nut move faster, but with less force. To determine the linear travel per step divide the screw […]

## What’s the Advantages of MOONS’ Linear Stepper Motors?

With the development of science and technology, automation has been applied more and more in industry. When designing automation equipment, various factors must be considered, including production line layout, installation environment, easy maintenance, transmission accuracy, wiring configuration, control system, etc. This means that it takes a lot of time to select motors and other mechanical […]
