Ball-type linear drives from norelem are stable, low-maintenance, quiet and have a longer service life. They are primarily used when tools or tool holders have to be positioned exactly. Ball-type linear drives from norelem have a high level of loading capacity and deliver an efficiency of up to 95%. In comparison to conventional ball-type linear drives, they offer low wear and friction. Ball-type linear drives can be mounted extremely fast without requiring any adjustment or calibration. ...
Many applications require long-term position stability, which relates to the notion of absolute precision over time. Until now, the long-term stability of strain gauges (SG) for position measurement was questionable. Using its extensive know-how of strain gauges integration and new instrumentation equipment, ...
ATLID Beam Steering Mechanism and derived new piezoelectric based devices for optical applications download
In space and defence (as well as in many others fields), there is a trend for miniaturisation in active optics requiring new actuators. Applications also often require the ability to withstand high vibrations and shocks levels, as well as vacuum compatibility for space applications. A new generation of small and smart actuators such as piezoelectric (piezo) actuators, are resolving this trend, thanks to their capacity to offer high energy density and to support both extreme and various ...
This paper presents research and development results of the high performances piezoelectric actuators. Performed studies were concentrated on the improvement of three major parameters: stroke, maximum driving frequency and operational temperature. Two new actuators were presented and described in this paper.
Advantages of large piezoelectric actuators and high power drives for fatigue and fretting test download
Constant expansion of new materials requires fretting or fatigue machines in order to test their failure. In many cases tests must be performed in severe conditions and at high frequency. These requirements come from the use of the materials in highly demanding applications.
While Cedrat Technologies has been active in space for more than 20 years with piezoelectric mechanisms, we have also been increasingly involved over the last few years in the development of magnetic actuators for space projects. In this paper, a focus is made on the case of magnetic actuators that are developed in the frame of the Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) project.
Machine footprint is one of the five key drivers of change identified in this white paper, change that we believe has the potential to radically alter manufacturing for the better. Modern manufacturing has to be highly flexible, adjusting to demand or new product introductions, seemingly at the flick of a switch. It also needs to be efficient, safe and increasingly connected.
