Kerk Motion Solutions Inc. now offers an entire line of high output can stack
linear actuators. The Haydon™ line of high output can stack actuators include
the 20, 25 and 35 mm frame sizes.
The Haydon high output linear
actuators were designed and built with performance and durability in mind. Technical
enhancements include optimized stator tooth geometry, high energy neodymium
magnets, custom engineered plastics, and larger ball bearings for greater rotor
support for maintaining accuracy and repeatability over a long life.
The high output can stack line
provides high force-to-size ratios and is ideal for a variety of applications
including precision medical equipment, scientific instrumentation, scanning
devices, printing equipment, advanced optics and other mechanisms requiring
high force in a compact size.
The linear actuators are available
in a variety of resolutions (linear travel per step). There are three
configurations available offering a variety of stoke lengths including captive,
non-captive and external linear.
Lithium-ion battery prices will drop rapidly over the next 10 years, setting the stage for plug-in vehicles to reach 5%-10% of total automotive sales by the mid- to late-2020s, according to a new study.
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
A recent Design News-exclusive study proves that engineering professionals are at the very forefront of this push into the future and making direct financial, performance, and value impact on their organizations by being personally involved or final decision-makers on automation solution and component choices.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
