The GS60 integrated, all electric, compact, sealed linear actuator is a brushless servomotor combined with an inverted roller screw mechanism. The integrated design provides the brushless motor as the driving force and the inverted roller screw as the power transmission, along with an electronic feedback source. The actuator provides continuous thrust ratings to 8,000 lbs and speed to 40 inches/sec. The roller-screw mechanism provides lead accuracy of 0.001 inch/linear ft. Zero-backlash units are available.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
