  • Factors to Consider When Choosing an Actuator of Four Feet or Less (.pdf)
    that can meet all of the above requirements in its conversion of motor torque to linear thrust is the single axis ball screw actuator. Ball screws convert rotary motion to linear motion, or torque to thrust, and vice versa. The ball screw actuator is a combination of a ball screw on which, to eliminate
  • Ball-screw rigidity is a matter of definition
    Not all ball-screw makers spec products the same way. This stiffness test rig uses a force sensor to measure axial thrust. A bracket clamped onto the drive journal prevents backdriving of the screw. The nut block has exchangeable inserts and hydraulically clamps to the cast-iron base. Three LVDT
  • Ford's Power Stroke Diesel Increases Power and Torque and Meets Emission Standards
    include: * Compacted graphite-iron (CGI) engine block, the first in a Super Duty-class vehicle in North America. CGI is stronger than conventional grey cast iron. * An inboard-exhaust/outboard-intake configuration. Ford engineers essentially flipped the cylinder heads so the exhaust manifolds runs down
