Aerospace technology is in a constant state of evolution. From engines and fueling systems to electronics, navigational instruments, and exterior designs, aerospace manufacturers and operators are always working to make aerospace equipment more streamlined, efficient, and cost-effective. Advances in aerospace actuation systems have been a key player in making aircraft faster, more maneuverable, and more […]

Industry professionals commonly categorize actuators as either fluid power (i.e., hydraulic or pneumatic) or electromechanical (i.e., electric motor driven) actuators. While hydraulic actuators have long served as the standard choice, electromechanical solutions are increasingly taking their place in a wide range of industries. Some of the sectors in which the transition from hydraulic to electromechanical […]

Clutches and brakes are electromechanical devices used to transfer rotary motion or hold a load in place. Although their actions are relatively straightforward, there are a surprisingly large number of variables to consider when choosing the most appropriate clutch or brake for a particular system. Taking these considerations into account in the early phase of […]
