Speed, acceleration and precision
Every EAGLE fiber laser is designed with linear drive motors on all motion axes. Linear motors provide high acceleration/deceleration and high dynamic accuracy. Unlike mechanical drives, linear motors do not lose energy converting rotational motor motion to linear traverse motion.
They deliver unmatched acceleration at any speed – they do not have a dynamic motion “sweet spot.” In addition, linear motors are non-contact in that the motor passes over the stator without touching so they never wear and never exhibit backlash. Linear motors high reliability and extremely low maintenance ensure optimal performance over the life of the machine. This is the only existing technology that will have exactly the same performance and accuracy after 10 years of operation. All EAGLE systems work on these solutions.
