For measurement equipment

we offer

the perfect fit

3D measurement systems with little space for a drive device—inside an electric arm, a control profile or a robotic arm, for example—pose a challenge to linear technology.

We take this challenge head on and create compact linear actuators. REGNER® electric linear actuators are the perfect fit to create linear motion in measurement and control applications in which other actuators simply do not fit because of their large dimensions.

Electric actuators by REGNER® are a part of demanding measurement and control applications, such as:

  • Automated inspection devices
  • Quality control systems
  • Automated rework stations
  • Gauges

They are fully reliable, maintenance-free devices.

SMOOTH MOTION FOR HIGH-PRECISION 3D METROLOGY

An American 3D measurement technology manufacturer requested a linear actuator solution to integrate into one of its high-precision models. The purpose of the metrology machine was to carry out rapid, fully automated inspections using point clouds.

The solution chosen to provide motion for such a demanding inspection device was a custom version of the RA38 linear actuator. Its reliability, compact design, and quiet operation were the three essential characteristics that convinced the manufacturer that that was the best choice for 3D measurements.

Fit and flexibility for positioning

The advanced rework systems of electronic equipment make it possible to replace components semiautomatically. In order to do so, they need to offer a reliable and precise position control of all the different tools in use.

The ultracompact RA-MINI actuator is the ideal solution for this type of task, given its adaptability and flexibility. Its compact design integrates beautifully into the rework device, giving it a clean, attractive look.

PRECISE MOTION CONTROL FOR SIMULATORS

The latest generation of simulators for practice in the commercial and industrial sectors should provide an experience as realistic as possible to make sure users get the best possible training. This is why simulators feature increasingly complex motion systems, capable of recreating situations that pilots will face daily in their professional lives.

A manufacturer of simulation systems opted for the RA-MINI ultracompact linear actuator series to provide linear motion to essential peripheral systems in their application, in order to offer an immersive user experience.
