Electro-Hydrostatic Actuation Proves Itself in Next-Generation Machines

Electro-hydrostatic actuators (EHA), widely used in the aerospace industry, are opening new possibilities for machine builders because they combine the best of electro-mechanical and electro-hydraulic technologies. Moog developed an EHA (see Figure 1) that is ideal for many industrial applications and competitive with traditional hydraulic solutions, lowering energy and investment costs. This technology is now proven in some very demanding industrial applications and is generating increased attention from design engineers and machine builders around the world. Full Article

Injection Molding Machines Benefit from Technology-Neutral Design Approach

In autumn 2013, Moog surveyed manufacturers and users of plastic injection molding machines about developments in their industry. In this article, the most important results of the survey are discussed including the current needs of manufacturers and users of injection molding machines. Full Article

In the Australian Outback with the World's Toughest Servomotors and Drives

At the heart of the modern railway network is the “points operating equipment” (POE). These are devices that facilitate the seamless flow of both passenger and freight trains between interconnecting railway tracks. These systems spend their life exposed to the harshest of environments such as extremes of temperature, driving rain, high humidity, and lightning strikes, not to mention the constant exposure to electromagnetic interference (EMI) from high voltage overhead power supply lines.

Accelerate Fast With The New Fastact J Servomotors

Moog is pleased to announce the introduction of a new series of servomotors called Fastact J Series Servomotors. These are electronically commutated synchronous AC motors with permanent magnets that are for highly dynamic servo applications where positioning times of 15 msec or less are the norm. This complete family of servomotors has very high angular accelerations which differentiates it from the competition. Full Article

A Deeper Level of High Performance: Motion Control Solutions for Oil and Gas Exploration and Production

Imagine the North Sea waves thrashing up against your oil rig with the high winds trying to throw you off balance. Think about feeling virtually baked under the hot sun as you work on your rig in the Gulf of Mexico. Couple this with current never-ending thirst for energy and understand that you have a harsh and dangerous job to do. Full Article
