Anorad appoints LG Motion for high performance motion controls
LG Motion Limited has been appointed by the Anorad Division of Rockwell Automation UK to provide high performance motion controls, servo drives and machine controls for the USA positioning systems specialists' wide range of linear servo and gantry positioning systems.
The appointment will focus on LG Motion supplying high speed distributed motion and machine controls from its Canadian distribution partner PMDi for integration with Anorad CHPS series direct drive linear stages, Hercules series gantry stages and engineered to order linear servomotor based positioning mechanics.
The PMDi range, exclusively represented in the UK by LG Motion, is centred on the Polaris™ motion and machine control system than runs on the company's own real-time Gbit/s Mercury™ network. Comprising multi-axis motion controllers, servo amplifiers plus digital and analogue I/O modules, Polaris is perfectly suited to high speed and high precision positioning with the fastest real-time network available on the market today. With a motion capability to 124 axes, the network can synchronise motion, I/O and data acquisition of amplifier and other machine control modules to within 10 nanoseconds - with the possibility of even faster timing coordination with the optional Pulsar module which reduces the sampling jitter to achieve sub-nanosecond synchronisation.
Anorad is highly regarded as a technological leader in the design, manufacture and application of precision positioning stages with a thirty year history of excellence, particularly in high speed linear servomotor based systems using both iron-cored and ironless direct drive technologies. The Company is particularly well established in high end applications in semiconductor fabrication and packaging, flat panel manufacture, data storage and laser micromachining. Anorad products are characterised by their high precision combined with industrial ruggedness and long, trouble free life.
The combination of Anorad linear servo and gantry positioning stages and PMDi motion and machine controls will enable high throughput motion sub systems for production, inspection and research based applications with LG Motion using its in-house design and manufacture capability to bring these products together as the enabling technology motion systems for its customers.
