ATR: The Fastest Direct Drive Rotary Motor by Akribis Systems

The ATR is another revolutionary direct drive motor from Akribis Systems.  The patent-pending design provides the motor with super high torque and low rotor inertia at the same time. In our ATR design, we replaced the conventional rotor back iron with another set of coils.  The removal of the back iron significantly reduced the rotor inertia. … Continue reading ATR: The Fastest Direct Drive Rotary Motor by Akribis Systems

Miniature Voice Coil Motor Stage by Akribis Systems

The MGV is a compact series of voice coil stages by Akribis Systems that features cross roller bearings and an encoder resolution of up to 20nm.  Due to the direct coupling of the load directly to the motor it is suitable for high seed and high acceleration applications.  Akribis voice coil motors are one of … Continue reading Miniature Voice Coil Motor Stage by Akribis Systems

Introducing Akribis Systems’ Voice Coil Motors & Voice Coil Position Actuators

A "voice coil" is a generalized term that refers to any galvanometer-like mechanism that uses a solenoid to move an object back-and-forth within a magnetic field. Voice coil actuators, or non-commutated DC linear actuators, consist of a permanent magnetic field assembly (permanent magnets and ferrous steel) and a coil assembly.  The current flowing through the … Continue reading Introducing Akribis Systems’ Voice Coil Motors & Voice Coil Position Actuators

Voice Coil Motors Explained

A "voice coil" is a generalized term that refers to any galvanometer-like mechanism that uses a solenoid to move an object back-and-forth within a magnetic field. In particular, it is commonly used to refer to the coil of wire that moves the read–write heads in a moving-head disk drive. In this application, a very lightweight … Continue reading Voice Coil Motors Explained
