  • Rotary Actuators
    100 . Torque is directly proportional to vane area and effective fluid pressure. Vane actuators have torque outputs as high as 500,000 lb-in. have helical grooves in the piston rod that convert linear to rotary motion. Helical actuators are available with standard rotations varying from 100 to 370
  • Straight talk on linear actuators
    and quiet operation. Cost-effective actuators capable of precise linear motion are in growing demand by machine builders. Two of the more widely used actuator drives fitting this description are toothed belts and ball screws. Both convert rotary motion of a drive motor to linear motion, though they do so
  • Linear actuators get a servo look
    a linear motor is to envision a rotary servomotor sliced lengthwise and then flattened. Motion between stator and what was formerly the rotor will now be linear, akin to a maglev train. Tubular linear actuators have a form factor resembling that of a solenoid. The position of the "plunger " (called
  • Hybrid Linear Actuators: Technical Overview
    Converting the rotary motion of a stepping motor into linear motion can be accomplished by several mechanical means, including rack and pinion, belts and pulleys and other mechanical linkages. All of these designs require various mechanical components. The most effective way to accomplish
  • Reciprocating Linear Alternator Brochure
    energy-robbing crank-shafts and linkages. that are typically required when converting reciprocating. linear motion to rotary motion in order to drive a conventional generator.
  • Straighten up and go linear
    accuracy and stiffness limitations. That leaves rotary-to-linear conversion as the preferred means for most linear applications. There are several ways to convert rotary motion to linear travel. Belts and pulleys provide fairly inexpensive linear motion when coupled with a rotary motor. However, belt
  • A Finer Control of Linear Motion
    force and motion through a straight line. In a typical mechanical system, a device's output shaft would provide linear motion using a rotary motor through gears, a belt and pulley, or other mechanical components. Trouble is, these components must be coupled and aligned. Worse yet, they add wear
  • Finding the right sensor for linear displacement
    PLCs and microcontrollers, which are taking over more control of linear-position/actuator-based systems. For example, they are now used for control surfaces on aircraft, vane position in gas turbines, valve position in steam turbines, and to measure dimensions for quality assurance. But fitting
