Actuator & motion control
17 October 2014
Helping to set the final touches for the Formula Student 2014 racing season, Team Bath Racing have been busy developing a much advanced tyre test rig which utilises a single axis linear actuator and precision servo drive supplied by motion specialist, LG Motion.
The single axis ballscrew driven actuator includes a linear motion guide support bearing arrangement and the integrated servomotor with encoder feedback provides more than the level of accuracy required for the tyre steering mechanism. Programming and set-up is made easy with the supplied PC software.
The single axis set-up uses similar motion programming and positioning mechanics as the multi-axis systems LG Motion has supplied into the motorsports industry that are used for applications such as wind-tunnel testing.
