Case Study

Antony Best Dynamics came to us with a requirement for a specialist linear actuator application. The company designs and makes advanced suspension testing systems for the global motor industry and needed a bespoke component to help enable their Suspension Parameter Measurement Machine (SPMM).

After speaking with their design consultants we developed a set of electro-mechanically powered actuators that were up to the task.

We made an array of six actuators that fitted onto the SPMM and performed linear movement on five different axes. Each actuator is driven independently by its own servo motor drive and the actuators are fitted with positional control switches. The individual actuator units consist of a spiral bevel gearbox that rotates a worm and wheel gear-set, thereby translating a high precision ball screw and achieving the desired output.

All elements of the actuator system we built fitted in seamlessly with the SPMM control panel to deliver a successful product.
