BEI Kimco Magnetics Entries

  • ►  Motors • Linear Motors 

    For: Entry

    A linear motor (linear induction motor) is an AC electric motor with an unrolled stator so to produce a linear force along its length.

    BEI Kimco Voice Coil Actuators are suited for such demanding applications as semiconductor equipment, defense systems and life-sustaining medical systems. These voice coil actuators are direct drive, hysteresis-free, cog-free devices offering high-acceleration and “clean” technology. They deliver infinite position sensitivity, limited only by resolution of the feedback device. These units exhibit perfectly smooth force-versus stroke characteristics. New packaging and miniaturization capabilities offer the designer added flexibility. Units can be packaged for integrated assemblies including encoder, motor, switch or other functions.

  • ►  Motors • Motor Controllers 

    For: Entry

    Motion controllers are used to govern the manner in which an electric motor operates. Motor controllers may be automatic or manual.

    BEI Kimco designs and manufactures BLDC motor controllers. They offer their models ECH05 and 84855101 BLDC motor controllers in compact sizes, 12-32 VDC inputs, and 5 and 10 amp currents.

  • ►  Motion Control • Actuators • Rotary Actuators 

    For: Entry

    BEI Kimco Magnetics manufactures rotary voice coil actuators that feature maximum stroke of plus or minus 60 degrees, maximum torque of 20Nm, and through hole, set screw hole, or two through hole mounting. Available with arc-segment and cylindrical designs, the actuators are used in semiconductor lead bonding equipment and pick and place robotics.

  • ►  Motors • Brushless Motors 

    For: Entry

    A type of synchronous electric motor, a brushless DC motor is powered by direct-current electricity.

    BEI Kimco Magnetics designs and manufactures custom fractional horsepower permanent magnet brushless DC Motors. Their range goes up to 20” in O.D., torques in excess of 50Nm and operational speeds beyond 70K rpm. BEI Kimco’s highly specialized products have been used in medical, military, aerospace and industrial industries, as well as other high demanding mission critical applications. BEI Kimco also holds numerous patents for advanced magnetic circuit design and noise reduction techniques. Their capabilities extend to a wide range of configurations which include housed, frameless rotor/stator parts sets and outside rotating designs. The company's motors are used for factory automation, low-bandwidth torquers, gimbal drives, robotics, semiconductor, and medical equipment applications.

  • ►  Motion Control • Actuators 

    For: Entry

    Mechanical devices that introduce motion. Types include pneumatic actuators, hydraulic actuators, linear actuators and piezoelectric actuators.

    BEI Kimco offers linear voice coil actuators (for semiconductor equipment, defense systems and life-sustaining medical systems), rotary voice coil (for Z axis control in semiconductor lead bonding equipment to gimbal torques and pick-and-place robotics), and smart voice coil actuators (where integration of a position feedback sensor for servo positioning or velocity control is needed) for the industrial, aerospace/defense, and transportation industries.
