Designing Electric Actuators


Actuators vary significantly in design, dimension and usage. Electric actuators continue to replace traditional pneumatic devices due to cost and application flexibility.

Designing an electric actuator requires accurate electromagnetic field simulation software. In this webinar, we will explore the designs of several typical actuator devices using MagNet v7 3D.

Pivoting, linear and rotating type actuators will be demonstrated.

Some of the performance metrics that will be examined include temperature, velocity & acceleration of components in motion, and resulting forces or torques.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS WEBINAR:

•MagNet’s easy parameterization in detailed 3D models
•MagNet’s time-transient response capabilities
•The benefits of coupled electromagnetic-thermal analysis
