An in-depth discussion on high-speed linear actuators that use disc magnet motor (DMM) technology, and their uses in low-load applications such as sensor movement, positioning a laser beam, pick-and-place of electronic components, movement of XY tables, and other applications. Quiet operation and lower operating and maintenance costs make electric DMM linear actuators a viable option for these high-speed, low-load applications.
The first thing that comes to mind when we talk about linear actuators is a pneumatic cylinder with some control valves. They have been an indispensable part of the automation industry and still hold importance. Pneumatic cylinders are suitable for a variety of automation applications at a high speed or high loads.Continue Reading
