Microactuator

New Scale Technologies (Victor, NY) has added a smaller, lower-power module to its SQL-M line of SQUIGGLE(R) micro-actuators. The SQL-M-1.8 micro-actuator module measures 13.5 × 4.3 × 4.2 mm – 35 percent smaller than the company’s original SQL-M-3.4 model - and consumes 300 mW when moving. It also has greater power efficiency, higher speed, and longer lifetime (more than 500,000 cycles). The module is less than half the size of solenoids or stepper motors, draws less power, and offers longer stroke with comparable force.

Precision Tensioning Brake

Placid Industries’ Hystereis brakes features the company’s patented Cog-Buster to automatically smooth braking torque. Frictionless torque is produced by internal magnetic fields rather than contact between parts. Slip torque is smooth, accurate, and reliable, with long term stability and wide speed range. Even high slip RPM causes no wear. Torque is smooth even near zero RPM. Units from 0 to 11 oz.-in. to 0 to 250 oz.-in. rated torque, with heat dissipation to 110 watts are available from stock.
