Another research- 2015 China Pneumatic Actuator Industry provides a basic overview of the industry including definitions, classifications, applications and industry chain structure.
Therefore, Noliac provides a list of options that can be applied to the actuators to ensure a perfect match for specific applications:
The current research performed in the Centre of Advanced Research, Design and Technology CARDT from Eftimie Murgu University Resita, has as aim to develop an SMA actuator driven by the two pairs of Nitinol active springs and experimentally based on the observation of thermo-mechanical transfer, to examine the feasibility of improving the real-time response of the SMA actuator in grasping processes (Miclosina et al.
Tokyo: 9962), announced it will provide live demonstrations of its popular LX Series Single Axis Actuators at the 2011 ATX exhibition in Toronto, June 21-23, at Booth #939.
The quality and performance of the actuators that produce this motion have improved, responding more reliably to the electronics that drive them.
The actuators move the vehicle's rudder, speed brake, elevons and main engines during flight.
For one thing, there's a limit to how much an actuator can be miniaturized and still be effective, especially if it has to stand up to air whipping across a wing at several times the speed of sound.
com/research/e44709/wireless_sensor_an) has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new report "Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks: Algorithms and Protocols for Scalable Coordination and Data Communication" to their offering.
A lot of design and operating principles are investigated to transform mechanical vibrations of piezoceramic elements into elliptical movement of the contact zone of actuator [2, 4, 7].
Abstract: This paper deals with arm position simulation of the PAM based actuator consisting of two pneumatic artificial muscles (PAMs) in antagonistic connection and four solenoid valves (two for muscles ,filling and two for muscles emptying).
