The I-Force patented I-beam shape with its overlapping windings allows for a higher power density in a smaller motor, improved heat removal, and added structural stiffness. In addition, the ironless (or air core) linear motor design has no attractive force toward the magnets. This allows for easy installation and zero cogging during motion.

Ultra high-flex cables come standard with I-Force motors. In addition, we offer modular magnet tracks for unrestricted travel length. Incredibly smooth motion, high precision and high force density make the I-Force linear motors an ideal solution for your demanding positioning requirements.

Overlapping Windings:

• Increased force density
• Improved heat dissipation
• Lower temperature rise
• Smaller, less expensive motor

No attractive force toward the magnets:
• Easier/Safer assembly and handling, smoother travel (no cogging)

Uses thermally conductive epoxy together with the windings
(Patented RE34674):
• Better heat dissipation

Vacuum encapsulation process:
• Allows motors to be used in high-vacuum environments
(Rated at 10^-6 torr, currently used in 10^-7 torr applications)

Modular magnet track:
• Unrestricted travel length

Embedded overtemp thermostat or optional thermistor:
• Protects windings against overheating

Ultra high-flex cables:
• Longer cable life, good for millions of cycles
