  • Strengths & Limitations: Belt Drive vs. Ball Screw Actuators
    Today, significant engineering work in the field of rotary motion conversion has yielded a diverse class of linear mechanical actuators which are useful for a broad range of advanced automation applications. The challenge is selecting an appropriate actuator for the desired functionality
  • Miniature Ball Screws for Life Sciences
    Medical devices require space saving and highly efficient components. Miniature ball screws as small as 3 mm, with 0.5 mm pitch, offer the perfect precision linear drive mechanism for many medical actuators. Custom configurations, often integrating components attached to the ball screw, provide
  • Strengths & Limitations: Belt Drive vs. Ball Screw Actuators
    The challenge for mechanical automation systems in the past has been the successful conversion of rotational motion from electric or mechanical motors into useful forms of linear motion. A breakthrough in this regard, the conveyor belt system represented one of the first useful implementations of
  • What is a 12 Volt Linear Actuator?
    Linear actuators are typically characterized by their drive mechanism - belt drive, ball or lead screw drive, pneumatic drive, etc. But it 's not unusual for rod style electric actuators to be classified by the input voltage - commonly 12 or 24 volts - of their integrated motors. These actuators
  • Can a Linear Actuator Provide the Rigidity and Accuracy of a Linear Stage?
    . This distinction implies that linear actuators can provide longer strokes and use a variety of drive mechanisms (belt, screw, rack and pinion), while stages generally have higher rigidity and use high-precision linear guides and drive mechanisms (typically a ball screw or linear motor) for excellent
  • Reciprocating Linear Alternator Brochure
    Reciprocating Linear Alternators (RLA's) utilize the same. basic architecture as an Electro-mechanical Actuator except. they utilize a back-driven ball-screw to turn a rotor. and produce electricity. In power-production applications,. these devices maximize energy-extraction by. eliminating
