Features

01 Centralized control with the Universal Controller

A single Universal Controller can control all the sliders in a centralized manner including slider circulation.

02 The bridge pier structure enables speedy setup.

Installation work, including coupling of each module, can be completed in a very easily in a short time using the connection unit that enables quick mechanical high-precision positioning and electrical connection of each model.

03 Top cover incorporated

A cover to protect the guide rail, motor, and sensors is attached to the top face to prevent faults caused by falling objects in each work process.

04 All the sliders can be operated / programmed independently.

05 Use of the motor driver integrated into and put together with the main body saves electrical wiring.

The unitized electro-mechanical structure with a motor driver built in the module controls entire LCM-X. Connecting with the Universal Controller via one YQ Link cable is all you have to do. It surely contributes to saving space in the control panel.

06 Recognize slider’s individual IDs

The multi-track magnetic sensor enables to identify a slider ID at any point in the transport process. Even if you have unintentionally changed sliders, the system correctly identifies the ID of each slider.

07 Mechanical tolerance between sliders +/-10 µm

When stopping two or more sliders at a point one after another, the actual stop positions are inevitably different because each slider has its own error width (machine difference). The LCM-X minimizes the width error among the sliders within as little as ±10µm to best suit high accuracy processes. Costs can be reduced as there is no need for RFID, etc.

08 No origin process needed

Newly developed high-precision full-range absolute server eliminates the need for return-to-origin. The operation can be started and stopped easily, so there is no time loss even when starting or restarting.

09 High acceleration rate

High speed motion between an extremely short distance is possible even in a high density process or pitch feed.

10 Low profile structure

Use of the newly developed linear motor makes the module height approximately half compared with the previous model. You can also use a space under the frame.
