MOTION CONTROL: Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions introduces the G4 37000 Series Can-stack Stepper Motor Linear Actuator, built for extended reliability and high performance.
The 37000 Series is a 36-mm linear actuator in the G4 line of products that leverages the same improvements as the recently released 25-mm linear actuator. Technical enhancements include optimized stator tooth geometry, high energy neodymium magnets, an oversized output spline, custom engineered plastics and larger ball bearings for greater rotor support and high axial loading capability.
The G4 37000 Series provides a high linear force-to-size ratio and is ideal for precision linear motion in a variety of applications including medical equipment, bar code scanning devices, printing equipment, laboratory instrumentation and other mechanisms requiring high force and extreme durability from a small linear actuator package.
There are three configurations available as with other Haydon stepper motor linear actuators; Captive, Non-Captive and External Linear.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
