Linear motors consist of two parts – a stationary “platen” and a moving “forcer”. Baldor’s unique HyCore™ contains no magnets on the stationary platen, thus it can easily be cut to length to suit the application and provides the benefit of not attracting metal particles.
The HyCore™ “forcer” consists of a three phase servo motor winding. It is controlled via closed loop using feedback from an external encoder. This provides benefits of higher performance, higher forces, and improved accuracy. Baldor’s new HyCore™ provides the highest forces per cost of any linear design available in the marketplace. Additionally, the continuous force capability can be extended by 20% with air cooling, increasing value further.
HyCore™ is extremely cost effective in applications requiring long stroke or high continuous duty. It has been designed to replace ball screw and belt/pulley actuators in many applications.
Baldor’s range of FlexDrive II, MintDrive II, and MicroFlex controls are ideally matched to the HyCore™ motor, offering the highest performance.
