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.
According to a study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, one of the factors in the collapse of the original World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, was the reduction in the yield strength of the steel reinforcement as a result of the high temperatures of the fire and the loss of thermal insulation.

Robots are getting more agile and automation systems are becoming more complex. Yet the most impressive development in robotics and automation is increased intelligence. Machines in automation are increasingly able to analyze huge amounts of data. They are often able to see, speak, even imitate patterns of human thinking. Researchers at European Automation
call this deep learning.
