Programmable Electric Actuators Rapidly Replacing LVDT's, Ball Screws in Pin Insertion and Height Gauging

CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA - 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. This...
