Such lifting systems are used for motocycles, cars, vans and trucks, so that we have to compute the optimal dimensions and actuating system in order to deliver a product which will meet the customer requirements.
The rugged design of the Drive and the DVC 5000 render the actuating system far less sensitive to dirt and other environmental factors than older technology.
Its "in-line" design reportedly means that the nozzle, valve pin, and actuating system (pneumatic or hydraulic) always remain aligned and not affected by thermal expansion.
At the same time, the actuating system will be configured using the magnetic records of the acceleration functions, which can be double-integrated for obtaining the displacement signals that reproduces the motion on the real road.
The conclusion is yielded, that the issue of identifying actuating systems in the field of robotics that meet at the same time the conditions of strength and lightness has found an eligible solution in the utilization of pneumatic muscles.
The research results expressed by the above graphs show that in both studied constructive variants the dynamic performance of the grippers, expressed by values for active and return stroke speeds and times, and the maintainability of the end position, as well as the compliance ensured by the very nature of pneumatic muscles best meet the requirements of soft gripping and clamping operations of parts, particularly in mobile robotics requiring light actuating systems, capable of generating large forces and torques at moderate velocities.
After a discussion of various types of pneumatic actuators and electropneumatic control valves, the authors explain how to determine system state variables, and examine open-loop and closed-loop pneumatic actuating systems in detail.
Hydraulic actuating systems are used for yaw, pitch and rotor brake because they perform better and are more reliable in large turbines and harsh conditions than conventional electro-mechanical systems," explains Patrik Holm, CEO of Mervento Ltd.
