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.
During a teardown of the iPad Air and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Show in Schaumburg, Ill., an engineer showed this "inflammatory" video about the dangers of maliciously mishandling lithium-ion batteries.
The Window Watcher stops the burglar before he does damage or enters the house. House alarm service companies set off alarms and call the service only after the burglar has damaged and entered the house.
