The innovative motor concept has all the advantages of direct drives such as high force density, high dynamic response, good control features and outstanding precision. As the secondary section track no longer has a permanent magnet, the 1FN6 is very inexpensive, especially in the case of long traversing distances.
The motor is therefore primarily used for applications in handling and linked axes or in highly dynamic and highly precise feeding axes of water-jet and laser-beam cutting machines. It is therefore an alternative to classic drive solutions with mechanical transmission elements such as gear racks or ball screws, as well as being an alternative to other types of motor such as asynchronous linear or reluctance motors. It is also ideal for applications in which a magnet-free secondary section track is essential.
In many applications in the machine tool area, long traversing distances have to be traveled quickly and precisely. Due to the costs of permanent magnets or in applications where it is difficult to protect the secondary section track against dirt, previous linear motor concepts could not be used or could only be used to a limited extent. The new 1FN8 linear motor is a synchronous linear motor developed by Siemens with a magnet-free secondary section track.

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have come up with a striking new addition to contact stamping technologies in the ERDF research project ScanCut. In collaboration with industry partners from North Rhine-Westphalia, the Aachen-based team of researchers developed a hybrid manufacturing process for the laser cutting of thin-walled metal strips. This new process makes it possible to fabricate even the tiniest details of contact parts in an eco-friendly, high-precision and efficient manner.
Plug connectors are tiny and, at first glance, unremarkable – yet modern vehicles would be unable to function without them. Several thousand plug connectors...

An international research team with Prof. Cornelia Denz from the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Münster develop for the first time light fields using caustics that do not change during propagation. With the new method, the physicists cleverly exploit light structures that can be seen in rainbows or when light is transmitted through drinking glasses.
Modern applications as high resolution microsopy or micro- or nanoscale material processing require customized laser beams that do not change during...
