Kerk Motion Solutions Inc. introduces its high-resolution 19000 series
captive linear actuator. This new 20 mm-diameter can-stack has a 7.5 degree
step angle resulting in smaller move increments and finer positioning
The Haydon High-Resolution 19000 Series is a
high output, compact linear actuator ideal for precision motion applications
requiring a small footprint.
The 19000 Series high-resolution linear
actuator is the newest addition to a larger family of 4th generation
high output linear actuators. 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 small package size.
Sciaky, provider of electron-beam additive manufacturing (EBAM) services, will start selling these machines commercially in September. The company has used its EBAM 3D printing technology for making very large, high-value, metal prototypes and production parts for aerospace and defense OEMs.
At this year’s Google I/O, the spotlight was pointed on gender inequality in the high-tech industry. Google has established a new initiative that it hopes will even out the playing field, Made w/Code. Part of this initiative will fund free online courses in basic coding.
