Greetings, long time has passed since i posted my last post , but i have a question that i would like to hear from people - there experiences and thoughts.
I'm in constructing new 5 axis grinding machine, and i was presented with solution that replaces all together the need for ball-screws, bearings and servo /step motor - the Siemens linear motor solution. My question is , what are possible pit-fouls about this design? Does any of you used this motors in there construction?
Here is the link to the Siemens manual and catalog so you can have a vision of what is the use and design of this motors. I'm satisfied with the rated forces that it generates (20700 N with biggest motors !!), but as i think this is relatively new technology i would like to hear the experiences and thoughts of people that have had the contact with the technology first hand.No sales pitches and fairy tales ...

Best regards, and thank you in advance!
