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 flap actuating system was retained for further examination.
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.
According to Parker Bertea, the new actuating system is easier to remove and replace than its more mechanical counterpart, which consists of a hydraulic actuator that uses valves for fluid flow.
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.
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.
Pneumatic actuating systems for automatic equipment; structure and design.
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.
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.
