Following its recent appointment to deliver high performance motion controls for the Anorad Division of Rockwell Automation UK, LG Motion will showcase an Anorad Hercules series high performance X-Y gantry positioning stage complete with an advanced distributed motion control system from its exclusive UK distribution partner, the Canadian motion and machine control specialist PMDi.

The 450 x 450mm high speed gantry system demonstrates LG Motion’s capability for design and integration of custom engineered motion sub-systems and is a typical example of the type of micropositioning set-up specified for demanding applications in high throughput production and test or in advanced research and development.

The demo includes Anorad LC series linear motors that can provide acceleration up to 5m/s2 with per-axis repeatability better than 2 microns. PMDi’s  Polaris motion and machine control range covers multi-axis motion controls, high performance digital servo amplifiers and a selection of digital and analogue I/O modules, Polaris is perfectly suited to high speed and high precision positioning automation with the fastest real-time network available on the market today – providing nanosecond synchronisation of up to 124 motion axes with I/O interaction and data acquisition. Servo amplifier technologies are available for linear and rotary brushless servos, brushed servo motors as well as galvo and voice-coil actuators.

A full selection of LG Motion’s own range of precision positioning stages will be on display. Designed and manufactured in Basingstoke, the LG series includes high precision linear, rotary and vertical lift stages. Also available to view are UniSlide, BiSlide and XSlide linear positioning stages for general purpose manual or motorised positioning.

Additionally, LG Motion will highlight motion control components and technologies from some of its other distribution partners.
