Multi-turn actuators

September 6, 2013 – 11:09

If the drive shaft is to be positioned at a certain angle to the output drive shaft or if the direction is to be displaced by 90°, combinations of the multi-turn actuators SA ... with AUMA spur gearboxes GST or bevel gearboxes GK are used. In both cases, the output torque can be increased many times.

  • Torque range from 120 Nm to 16, 000 Nm
  • Handwheel for manual operation
  • High enclosure protection
  • High quality corrosion protection
  • Wide ambient temperature ranges
  • Electrical connection via AUMA plug/ socket connector (optionally terminals)
  • Plug cover with threads for cable glands
  • Output drive types according to ISO and DIN standard

Not much more than a 'weak' robot ..

Many of the minimum wage jobs will eventually be replaced by robots capable of doing the job more effectively, for longer periods of time, without Breaks and they will never piss and moan about the crappy pay!
.. Face it, this has already happened.
So, where are the jobs going to be in the future? Building robots to replace minimum wage workers who HONESTLY do not want to be doing that $hit job anyway. So get thee to a mechanical trades school or a place teaching Mechatronics. Servos, motors, gears, sensors, transducers and actuators is THE FUTURE!
