The 19000 can-stack linear actuator uses the latest technology
in both materials and manufacturing. Technical enhancements compared with the
typical can-stack motor found in the marketplace includes optimized stator
tooth geometry, high energy neodymium magnets, custom engineered polymers and
larger ball bearings. The resulting system is a tiny linear actuator with high
force, high accuracy and durability.
The 1.22 inch (31mm) stroke length allows a
greater range of linear motion while maintaining the small mechanical footprint
for use in demanding applications requiring compact components and has a body
diameter of only 20 mm and a linear force of up to 180 oz (50N).
The high output can-stack line provides
exceptionally high force-to-size ratios and is useful for a variety of
applications including precision medical equipment, scientific instrumentation,
scanning devices and advanced optics.
A new method of modeling how they are created with chemical vapor deposition (CVD) could reduce the cost of carbon nanostructures used for for research and commercial applications, including advanced sensors and batteries.
BMW has already incorporated more than 10,000 3D-printed parts in the Rolls-Royce Phantom and intends to expand the use of 3D printing in its cars even more in the future. Meanwhile, Daimler has started using additive manufacturing for producing spare parts in Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
