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.
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
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.
