Electric Cylinders (or electro-mechanical cylinders) are captive linear actuators designed as a modular system. Due to lower maintenance costs, enhanced motion control, and a long list of additional benefits, electric cylinders are rapidly replacing pneumatic cylinders in multiple industries.
Helix Linear Technologies designs lead screws, custom machined and molded nuts and linear actuators to suit specific application loads, life, accuracy, and other performance requirements for use in medical fluid management.
ASIMO is a bipedal humanoid robot Honda has been developing with a goal to develop robots that will coexist with and be useful to people since its first introduction in 2000. In 2011, the latest version was introduced with world's first autonomous behavior control technology.
In June 2019, Corridor Digital released a video in which a robot in the style of Boston Dynamics is abused in a variety of manners, before finally fighting back against the humans attacking it.
Although the term “linear actuator” can be defined broadly as any mechanical device that converts energy into controlled, straight-line motion, the definition narrows in the context of devices used for medical treatment and biomedical/chemical research.
Stepper motor driven screw linear actuators have been used for a while in a variety of applications. Integrated motor screw units used to only be available in high volume runs or too costly to consider. Building your own with expensive couplings and support bearings, mounting and aligning the assembly – add up to overwhelming costs.
This short video shows you how to use Solidworks to mate a lead screw with a stepper motor.
Students with Autism thrive in the world of CNC Machining.
A stepper motor is one of the most common motors used in motion control applications, primarily positioning applications.
