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.
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.
