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.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
