Linear & Rotary Actuators
Servo-driven actuators designed to replace pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders
Linear & Rotary Actuators : 07 February, 2015
The new Linear-Mech SA range of servo-driven actuators fron Techdrives is designed to take the place of pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders by giving better performance, higher precision and substantial energy savings.
Linear actuators enter screw jack territory
Linear & Rotary Actuators : 08 December, 2013
The Servomech range of linear actuators sold in the UK by Techdrives has been extended with powerful new models for forces up to 350kN (35 tonnes). These are well into the performance realm of screw jacks so design engineers have the choice from the two technologies.
Rotary drive with twin pistons offers precision, stiffness and loadability
Linear & Rotary Actuators : 27 August, 2013
Festo has launched a cost-effective semi-rotary drive with twin pistons that offers excellent precision, stiffness and loadability. Using an innovative bearing system, the DRRD actuator can handle higher loads with exceptional accuracy. The rotary actuators are ideal for precise positioning in handling applications across a wide range of industries including food manufacturing and process and packaging.
Heavy-duty linear actuators for multi-axis applications
Linear & Rotary Actuators : 19 April, 2013
Linear motion applications often involve heavy-duty, multi-axis manipulation of heavy loads at high speeds. A prime example would be palletising equipment, but many applications have similarly intense motion requirements. To meet the needs of these heavy-duty, multi-axis linear motion tasks, Rollon has introduced the Robot Series of linear actuators.
Daresbury offices for actuator specialist
Linear & Rotary Actuators : 19 April, 2013
Electric actuator supplier Olsen Engineering has opened additional offices in Daresbury, Warrington, with the aim of providing much better North West UK regional sales support. The extra offices are based at Sci-Tech Daresbury. The new space gives Olsen the means to take advantage of networking opportunities with other science and technology companies from within the campus, as well as being able to use the vast array of multi-media conference facilities.
Miniature linear actuator offers stroke lengths of up to 250mm
Linear & Rotary Actuators : 05 November, 2012
Igus UK has introduced a miniature linear drive system SLN 27 with optional NEMA 11 motor, to its Drylin linear bearing range. Weighing in at 69g and offering a maximum lubrication-free stroke length of up to 250mm, this minute linear drive system is particularly suited to simple handling tasks in confined spaces.
High performance linear actuator give bomb disposal robot extra lift
Linear & Rotary Actuators : 29 October, 2012
A high performance linear actuator, supplied by HT Servo has helped bomb disposal techniques moved up a gear to cope with the increasingly complex problems military and counter- terrorism teams are encountering.
Expanded linear actuator series allows use of third party motors
Linear & Rotary Actuators : 13 October, 2012
Exlar has expanded the K Series line of linear actuators with new K90 models. Designed for flexibility, this compact, 90-mm frame size actuator offers three distinct performance levels and allows the use of third party motors. Featuring dimensions and form-factor consistent with ISO Metric pneumatic cylinder specifications, K90 actuators can directly replace pneumatic and hydraulic actuators.
