Tolomatics ACS (Actuator Control Solution) low cost stepper controller/drive was designed specifically for electric linear actuator control. It is easy-to-use and program with Windows-based programming software. Simply select the configured Tolomatic electric actuator in the software and it automatically sets up most of the necessary parameters to create linear motion. Drives can easily be daisy chained together for maximum programming flexibility.
Select the Right Linear Actuator: Making Sense of Manufacturer Specifications
In the world of electromechanical linear actuators, a product that has the "highest" output rating, whether it is loads, moments, or thrust can be a distinct competitive advantage. When selecting the proper actuator for an application, the product that has the "highest" rating is often determined to be the superior, robust choice. However, how long the actuator performs is what really counts. How do you compare manufacturer's published specification ratings so you can make a meaningful comparison? It's all about life and load. This paper will give concrete examples that compare specifications and explain how to interpret the results.
Evaluating Actuators for Washdown in Food & Beverage Applications: Materials, Design, Fabrication and Maintenance Affect Actuator Performance and Compliance With Food Safety Guidelines
Actuators used in the food and beverage industry must be manufactured from appropriate materials and designed in a way that eliminates collection points where bacteria can flourish. Suitable actuators must also be capable of withstanding frequent washdowns with water, detergents, steam, caustic soda, citric acid or other types of sanitary cleaning solutions. This paper will examine how actuators need to be designed and built in order to perform in this challenging environment so that process and automation engineers can select the most appropriate actuators for their food and beverage applications.
Rules of Actuator and Guide Alignment in Linear Motion Systems
Many automated machines rely upon linear guidance components, such as profiled rail, round rail or other rolling or sliding bearing structures, to guide and support the moving elements of the equipment. Often these moving elements are drvien by some type of linear actuator device. This paper will discuss ways to enhance overall system performance by otimizing the "alignment" of the linear guide and actuator.
Servo Spot Welding Offers Superior Performance and Lower Lifetime Costs for Auto Manufacturing
Servo spot welding offers superior performance and lower lifetime costs for auto manufacturing Leading global automobile manufacturers rely heavily on robotic equipment. There are good reasons for this, as servo control brings many advantages to the production environment. Higher-quality welds, higher productivity, lower costs and higher overall quality are key advantages of servo control. There are however, many automobile manufacturers producing vehicles using primarily manually positioned, pneumatic-powered spot welding equipment. This paper discusses the advantages of electric servo actuators over pneumatic actuators for use in robot-carried and stationary or pedestal, spot welding equipment for the automoblie industry.
Top Ten Tips: How to Specifiy Electric Rod-Style Actuators for Optimal Performance, Reliability and Efficiency
With today's demand for controlling costs while achieving high speed and high precision in factory automation, it is more important than ever to fully analyze a linear actuator application and precisely determine a project's parameters. Additional engineering and analysis at the front end of an electric actuator application will reduce overall costs and result in automation systems with higher reliability, better performance, lower energy expenditures and less maintenance. This paper provides ten tips for achieving the best performance from rod-style electric actuators.
Specifying Electric Rodless Actuators: Ten Tips for Maximizing Actuator Life and System Performance
Electric rodless actuators have an inherent advantage over rod-style actuators for being able to support and carry loads. However sizing an electric rodless actuator involves more than merely calculating force and stroke. This paper offers ten tips for achieving optimal performance, reliability and efficiency in applications using rodless-style actuators.
