These motors represent a technical leap over existing DC brushless motor technology:
• Flux density over 10,000 Gauss - achieved by using Halbach magnet designs (like those used in Particle Accelerators)
• SMAC’s patent pending PRINTED COIL technology - uses circuit board manufacturing methods to make coils with the following advantages;
• Very low cost tool up
• Very quiet because of the near perfect coil layer location
• Nearly zero variance in resistance
• Allows the combination of coil/encoder reader head/ controller amplifier all in the same circuit board. (Eliminates wires, soldering, etc.)
Torques are 2X that of conventional designs. SMAC also is making special motors for OEM proprietary application - like the HT 100 designed to integrate into a specific customer’s filler line.
SMAC HT motors have much higher torques than the current market leaders and are priced very competitively. Design possibilities exist to reduce motor foot print/weight and even sometimes eliminate a gear.
SMAC’s built-in feedback system gives SMAC’s devices the unique mechatronic ability to “perform a task and verify its quality at the same time.” This would allow the actuators to quality check key processes 100% in real time and feedback the results.
