Motor mount options include direct-drive
and parallel-transmission belt
Interchangeable standard components give MOVITEC Linear Modules and Tables design flexibility. Depending on load and speed requirements, engineers can select from different transmission, drive, and motor configurations, among other options. For example:
MOVITEC Linear Modules, designed to replace complex or bulky pneumatic cylinders, come in four sizes: 70, 90, 130, and 160, with screw (MV2P) or belt (MC2P) transmission and one linear guide with two slide units. Where the application demands high rigidity and accuracy, types MV4P and MC4P offer two linear guides and four slide units.
MOVITEC Linear Tables of size 100, 150, 200, and 250 are available with ball bushing shaft guides or linear guides, with the exception of tables 300 and 400.
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.
