Linak's LA23 electric linear actuator has a
compact design that allows it to be built into a variety of applications,
especially where space is a concern. The width is 1.7 inches (43 mm) with
a height of 3.35 inches (85mm) and the housing measures 4.84 inches (123mm). It
is capable of over 560 lb (2,500N) of force in push or pull.
LA23 was designed to be used in markets where space is a concern. It is useful
for wheelchairs and patient lifts in the medical market and in applications
such as industrial vents.
LA23's exchangeable cables allows for optimized logistics and easy cable
features of the LA23 include:
lengths up to 11.8 inches
up to .4 inches/sec
or 24V dc motor options
steel back fixture for added strength
potential free signal switch at end of stroke
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.
