linear motors have had a clear advantage over ironcore linear motors in many
applications for one clear reason: they’re not subject to cogging. “Cogging” is
a term used to describe non-uniform velocity. It can appear as a jerky motion,
especially at slow speeds.
Hydraulic Hybrids Can Power Off-Road Vehicles Integrating a hydraulic generator into traditional hybrid powertrains can lower costs and increase overall efficiency.
Automotive engineers may be further ahead in applying
hybrid technologies, but some of the most exciting hybrid innovations these
days target off-road OEMs and makers of construction and farm equipment.
Although these innovations could soon migrate over into consumer vehicles,
right now they make sense for industrial vehicles and work equipment in terms
of ROI and meeting (or avoiding) municipal and federal regulations.
new P Series drives are packed with features and capabilities, yet remain
competitively positioned for even the most demanding OEMs. The drives are
offered in three power levels and two different control interfaces, Pulse and EtherCAT.
Gearing Servo Motors for Improved Performance Selecting
the right gear can help servos meet the demand for more complex moves at higher
torques and speeds.
At times a motor’s capability may be limited to the point where it requires
gearing. As servo manufacturers develop more powerful motors that can muscle
applications through more complicated moves and produce higher torques and
speeds, these motors require gearheads equal to the task.

The ML18 is the smallest member of Parker's I-Force ironless linear
motor family. It incorporates the I-Force I-beam shape with overlapping
windings to allow for high power density, improved heat removal, and
added structural stiffness. In addition, the ironless linear motor
design has no attractive forces, allowing for zero cogging, rapid
accelerations, and easy installation.

The XFC Seriesis Parker’s latest addition to the electric cylinder family
of products serves to further extend the performance range and, when aligned
with the ETH product line, it creates one of the most feature-rich and
application-optimized product offerings on the market today.
Introducing Parker's High Moment Rodless Linear Actuator Series HMR is now being produced for North American market.
Parker is pleased to announce the domestic manufacturing of the
complete line of High Moment Rodless (HMR) electromechanical linear actuator
“This move will serve to greatly improve product lead times as
well as offering greater levels of customer support and customization options,”
says Jeremy Miller, Parker’s Linear Mechanics Product Manager.
