Speed, acceleration and precision
Every EAGLE fiber laser is equipped with linear drive motors on all movement 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 provide unbeatable acceleration at any speed – they do not have a dynamic motion “sweet spot.” Linear motors are also contactless, since the motor moves above the stator without touching it. This results in no wear, and no backlash. The outstanding reliability and extremely low maintenance of linear motors provides optimum performance over the entire service life of the machine. This is the only technology that will still be providing the same performance and accuracy after 10 years of operation. All EAGLE systems are equipped with these solutions.
