White paper: Cedrat Technologies discusses self-locking MRF latches and dampers download

Cedrat Technologies S.AMon, 14 Apr 2014

MRF actuators are new electromechanical components using magneto rheological fluids (MRF). When submitted to a high enough magnetic field, MRF switch from a liquid to a near-solid body. New MRF actuators were developed in order to reach three aims: to offer a blocking force at rest, which can be strongly reduced by applying a current, to provide an electrically controllable resistive force over a stroke of 30mm, to perform the control of the force in a very short time.
