New office Building Tecnotion

Due to the growth we are experiencing, the current building in the Netherlands has become too small. Luckily there was a possibility of expanding the office with 2.000 square meters next to the current building. The new building will be connected to the main office by a roofed bridge. As the main building is equipped with a cleanroom, the new building will also get such a shielded production room. The opening will take place in October.

New: Torque QTR Motor Series

Torque motors are permanent-magnet direct drive motors that rotate along an axis. They can be used wherever a rotary movement is required and offer numerous advantages over conventional servo drives.

Our torque motors are extremely compact, provide an extremely stiff drive train, eliminate the need for time-consuming mounting procedures, are virtually maintenance free and can be integrated directly into the machine structure, while the spacious open inner diameter enables wire and cable feedthrough. To top things off the entire series comes with completely sealed stators and integrated temperature protection and measurement sensors.

High performance in a small package

TL seriesLinear motors as drive solutions have found their way in to various industries over the past decades. Their performance is also reckognized for drive solutions where space is limited. Tecnotions TM3 and UC3 linear motors are the motors to choose when extreem compact build size is required.

The TM3 linear motor is the smallest in Tecnotions iron core linear motor range. It’s coil has a length of only 93mm and weighs in at 600grams. Despite this small size it can deliver a continuous force of 60N.



Expansion of the motor family

Almelo, Netherlands, November 2015 - The rare earths present in the permanent magnets of linear motors are a cost-intensive factor. Against this background, the linear motor specialist Tecnotion expands its product portfolio with a new iron core motor.

The TM18 is the fourth in the TM series, producing the same force as motors containing larger, more expensive magnets. With the addition of the TM18 even applications which require the force from larger motor series, are now covered by this new motor. These applications no longer need wider and therefore more expensive magnetplates.
