Mechanical systems, such as engines and motors, rely on two principal types of motions of stiff components: linear motion, which involves an object moving from one point to another in a straight line; and rotational motion, which involves an object rotating on an axis. Nature has developed far more sophisticated forms of movement — or…
Actuator design is a series of tradeoffs to reach an optimized solution. The problem can be very complex because there are no rules for the design process. The connection between the mechanism and the source that powers the load seems arbitrary, but the impact is significant. Since all of the major components have to be […]
Franklin, Indiana – NSK’s MCH Series Monocarrier linear actuator aids in streamlining the design and assembly of many automation applications, including assembly and inspection equipment and equipment transportation. MCH Monocarriers feature super-high rigidity and also offer long-term, maintenance free-operation.
By Randy Bowman, Market Manager – TECHLINE™ Div., LINAK Crystal McGrew, Marketing Communications If you’ve not looked at electric linear actuators lately, you may be missing out. Today’s electric linear actuators exemplify mechatronic principles as well as offer more power than earlier versions, with advances in other features including force and load capabilities, and control. Rapid […]
