  • How hydraulic motion-control measures up
    high-speed back-andforth linear motion to sweep powder into the cavity and then eject the finished part, making a hydraulic actuator the preferred power source. An electronic motion controller coordinates motion and ensures repeatability. To satisfy Gasbarre's key requirements, the motion controller would
  • Soft Actuators Tackle Hard Jobs
    Air actuators shake off contamination that can destroy traditional cylinders. For more than 50 years, air actuators have played a key role in many pneumatically powered machines. Air actuators differ from metal pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders in that they have no piston rods and cylinder barrels
    The Prosthesis in particular stood out to us with its unique hybrid-electric power source and featured many hydraulic actuators in it's design. The Prosthesis is still in it's early stages and we hope to work with the creators on future designs using our linear actuators.
  • Top Trends Impacting Design Engineers, part 2
    performance in a variety of media, temperatures, and pressures before the part is ever installed. Another change is a growing interest in hydraulic systems that don't use oil. Water-hydraulic systems are ideal when safety or cleanliness is of utmost concern. Inherently environmentally friendly, water-based
  • Basics of Design Engineering: Hydraulics New Sealing Systems Take the Heat
    friendly to traditional seals. And to get more work out of smaller, lighter actuators, hydraulic-equipment manufacturers continue to push pressures ever higher. Overall, new seal materials and designs are necessary to meet these increasingly tough requirements. Recent advancements should help
  • Waterslide Simulator
    the world's problems -- or just do cool things. In a recent episode, the design team built a 30-ft-diameter doughnut out of waterslide sections. Hydraulic actuators lift, tilt, and spin the circular apparatus while a computer projects an image of a waterslide course inside. Riders surf inside
  • Controlling high-performance electrohydraulics
    accuracy and reliability. Electronic programming also dramatically shortens setup time. Circuit design and components are critical in high-performance electrohydraulic motion-control systems. Hydraulic motion control offers many advantages over electric and pneumatic systems, especially in applications
  • Guidelines for sizing servohydraulics
    The best controllers and software can't overcome a poorly designed hydraulic system. In typical servohydraulic motion systems, the valve mounts as close as possible to the cylinder. Experts also recommend motion controllers specifically designed for hydraulic applications. Cylinder-bore size
