Role of Actuators in Enabling Industrial Automation Functions

Today, industries rely on automated machinery/processes than other manual (mechanized) systems. Automation – a word originated from ancient Greek words of Auto (means self) Matos (means moving) – results in highly efficient manufacturing or production processes. Automated equipment offers superior performance, whilst helping to minimize dangerous assembly and industrial processes requiring human intervention. Actuators have

Top 3 Significant Defense Vehicle Actuator Applications

In a battlefield, a soldier always uses an armored vehicle to target an enemy. He works with an assumption that the vehicle will work as expected. This assumption works only if the vehicle is equipped with an actuator. Over the years, the automated vehicles have improved in terms of ergonomics, speed, and security. This was

Designing Actuators for the Military Industry

Effective motion control actuation is a critical requirement for military applications. Linear actuators for the military industry need to perform under heavy loads for long periods of time. In terms of performance, the actuators should provide fast and efficient responses, smooth and accurate movements, while providing protection against environmental contaminants. They also need to provide
