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
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
