Programmable Electric Actuators Rapidly Replacing LVDT's, Ball Screws in Pin Insertion and Height Gauging
Programmable electric actuators have been increasingly favored as airless substitutes for LVDT's and ball screws in connector pin insertion and connector pin height measurement. Unlike ball screws or LVDT's, electric actuators have programmable positioning. They can press the pin in with the correct force, verify its position, and provide a tight fit every time.

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
