Made in California by Diakont, DA Series actuators are ruggedly built and offer long, reliable service for demanding industries such as automotive manufacture.DA Series actuators use robust components such as planetary roller screws with stateoftheart thread designs produced using special hardening processes. The actuators featuring integrated permanent magnet synchronous ...

Gerard Bush of INMOCO offers some insight into the process.Engineering designers usually start a project knowing what they want their machine or equipment to achieve naturally to working backwards from there to get an idea for an initial concept design. It is then a matter of going back and forth, considering...

All DA actuators have an integrated motor and roller screw to provide superior performance in a compact space envelope.The roller screw design provides a large contact surface for converting rotary torq...

To do this requires precise control over the motor current on the haptic side and precise sensing of the applied motor current on the working end of the system. Gerard Bush of INMOCO discusses applications for haptic feedback and how they can be implemented.Telerobotic applications are becoming more and more commonplace in many diverse fields, from n...

Following very positive experiences with the AKD and AKDN servo drives, Kollmorgen is now also fitting the high p... Wed, 18 Apr 2018 00:00:00 GMT <![CDATA[ The everyman guide to motion engineering ]]> Machine designers and specifiers increasingly have to look at creating motion control systems. It is quite a complex specialism, so Gerard Bush of INMOCO has compiled the following guide.The most important thing to know about motion control is that it is used in many different types of machine design and engineering. Every application is unique, and some are very different from others, so there are no universal answers and it is always best to get expert help from the outset. You sho...
