Today, linear actuators play a significant role in a broad range of advanced automation applications. From the simple movement of raw material in a manufacturing environment to advanced robotic systems for the precise positioning of a machine tool, linear actuators provide fast, efficient and repeatable motion for a variety of tasks. Two of the most widely used types of linear actuators are belt-driven and ball screw driven actuators.

The word ‘anechoic’ means simply ‘without echo’. An anechoic chamber is a box, chamber or room that is devoid of reflections from the walls, ceiling, or floor. If you’ve ever been in a large room and shouted ‘echo!’, you’ll know that you usually get some kind of reverberation where you hear your voice repeat a few times. To avoid this phenomena, anechoic chambers are lined on the inside with materials that are designed to completely absorb all sound waves thus eliminating any and all reflections.

When referring to linear bearings, we generally think of devices that incorporate ball bearings – meaning friction is reduced between moving parts by recirculating balls. Bushings, ball splines, linear guides, and slides typically incorporate recirculating ball bearings. As technology has become more demanding and requiring greater precision, however, reliance another type of linear bearing, the crossed roller, has dramatically increased.
