Lightweight Actuator for Space Travel

Lightweight Actuator for Space Travel

Challenge: A space company required an actuator that was extremely lightweight, short in length, heavy-duty in load, and high speed.

Solution: Motion Solutions provided a Special EDM process that removes weight in the steel rails, special gearbox, and motor combination that has the pinion gear directly on the motor shaft.

Result: Our team of engineers was able to design, build and deliver the actuator per the customer’s’ requirements.

Our Design Process

“It’s really important to thoroughly understand the application. We would start by reviewing the statement of work or application information that the customer provides, and then we would have a consultative meeting to make sure that we really understand how the system should function, and all of the nuances that are associated with it.”
