The Miracle of Motion Actuators

We’ve hardly begun to explore the world of possibilities that automation makes available for us. Particularly as the fields of robotics and automation have developed, we’ve begun to realize the potential for technological advancement, increased rates of innovation and even cultural changes that those technologies make available to us. Robotics and automation are technologies in motion, and I mean that both literally and figuratively. Automated robots are all about autonomy and movement; they are designed to reproduce the kinds of movement and behavior that were once restricted to living things. So in this way they embody another kind of movement, and that is movement into the future that robotics makes available for humanity. Continue reading

Automotive linear actuators are found in car jacks and retractable truck bed covers. Other actuator varieties are used to create and control the motion of robotic assembly equipment. Still others are used to push open automatic doors. These applications seem like normal, sort of garden-variety industrial processes, which they are. But linear actuators can also be put to use in some comparatively exotic applications. Continue reading
