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.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
The Industrial Internet of Things is bringing a previously reluctant process industry into the wireless fold. The ability to connect smart sensors to the Internet has spiked the demand for wireless devices in process manufacturing, according to the new study from ARC Advisory Group.
If you’re developing an embedded monitoring and control application, then you’ll want to take note of the upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Embedded Development Using Microchip Microcontrollers and the CCS C Compiler."
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.
