  • Cylinders
    Actuators convert fluid energy into useful work. Fluid-power actuators are available in a number of forms to provide specific types of action. Cylinders work through linear extension; motors impart continuous rotary motion to objects; rotary actuators twist an object through only a partial arc
  • Straighten up and go linear
    Economical motor sizing for peak loads Linear servomotors from MTS Systems have ironless cores permitting up to 10 Linear servomotors are available in either dual- or single-row magnet configurations, with track lengths as long as 72 in. Until a few years ago, designers looking to power a linear
  • Linear actuators get a servo look
    New actuators borrow ideas from linear motors to provide controlled displacement on a budget. Vice President Copley Controls Corp. Canton, Mass. Historically, industry has depended on ball screws, belt drives, and pneumatic mechanisms for automation's positioning tasks. But the rising demand
  • Pneumatic linear guides lighten loads
    motors, electromechanical ball-screw or belt drives, and hydraulic cylinders. But designers of automated assembly machines increasingly turn to pneumatic linear guides because they provide a combination of features that enhance overall machine performance. Pneumatic systems require a source
  • Designing Motion-Control Systems With Electric Cylinders
    , and PCs. Speed-thrust curves help select a best-fit electric cylinder. Motion-control systems that require linear movement can be built around a variety of different actuators. The most common types fall into linear actuators, linear motors, and precision positioning tables. Linear actuators
  • Linear Transducers Steer Sunseeker's Luxury Yachts
    Penny + Giles is supplying its robust and reliable in-cylinder ICT100 linear displacement transducers for use on Sunseeker's prestigious Predator range of performance motor yachts. The transducers were chosen for use on the luxury motor yachts because of their rugged design, excellent reliability
  • Electrohydraulic Actuators
    of these actuators is the feedback system. A number of different feedback systems, both mechanical and electrical, are used, depending on the accuracy and durability required. One method for accurately sensing cylinder rod position is with a linear displacement transducer. In one widely used system
  • Pneumatic or servo?
    , or direct-drive linear systems. Many times the amount of force required for movement may lead the engineer to think a pneumatic actuator is the only possibility. Yet, electric actuators are quite capable of exerting as much force as a pneumatic cylinder. For example, electric cylinders from range from
