Electromechanical Division is pleased to announce the release of
the mSR (miniature square rail) positioner. The mSR series of miniature, dual
square rail guided, linear motor positioners has been engineered to deliver a
combination of modularity, flexibility, and performance in an extremely compact
Electromechanical Automation Division is pleased to announce the release of the
Intelligent Parker Amplifier (IPA). The IPA is a 1.5-axis servo
drive/controller based on the ACR control platform. Available in two power
levels—400W and 1500W—the IPA can drive a wide range of rotary and linear
motors and supports a number of industry standard feedback protocols.
Three Megatrends Shaping Robotics in the Life Sciences Demographic shifts, technology advancements and commercial realities are each having a significant impact on the industry, but their interaction is influencing design methods and componentry, as well as the expectations those designs inspire.
megatrends are rapidly changing the landscape of robotics and automation in the
laboratory and life science markets. Each of these trends stands alone in
having a significant impact on the industry, but their interaction is
influencing design methods and componentry, as well as the expectations those
What Motor Manufacturers Must Do for Robot Makers and Users By Jeff Nazzaro, Gearhead and Motor Product Manager
Robotics represents different things to different industries.
When it comes to propulsion, arm joint manipulation, turret rotation, and so
on, many robotic manufacturers benefit from using frameless versus housed
motors. The benefit comes from the options made possible by incorporating
motors into their product designs...
Tech and 3-D Manufacturing Team Up to Make Bigger, Better Printer
Hannifin is partnering with +Mfg to build a new 3-D printing platform large

Electromechanical Positioning Technology Parker's
high precision product manager Travis Schneider build industry relations with local university.
February, Travis Schneider, Parker EMN’s precision mechanics product manager,
presented at one of Carnegie Mellon University’s technology seminars on linear
actuators. “When applied correctly, electromechanical actuators are useful in
many different applications,” he said. “Whether your goal is to make, measure,
or move something, electromechanical actuators can help you to achieve higher
control, and higher consistency.”
