I am looking for force controlled linear actuators like those : orca actuators, but more in a “diy” way, have you ever heard of project involving this type of actuators and if there were any work done in the open source community ?
I’d like them to be electricity based rather than pneumatic or hydraulic and capable of ~300 N to give you an idea
Thank you and have a nice day !
thanks for your topic.
I am not aware of any open source community project, but having two ideas/solutions for your project
Using the iR Robot Force Control Linear Actuator: MightyZAP 90mm Force Control Version | MYBOTSHOP.DE, 304,95 € These actuators can be daisy chained and there are several length available: 27mm stroke up to 90mm (but not more) and a lot of accessories: iRROBOT MightyZAP Linear Servomotoren | MYBOTSHOP.DE
Using a DYNAMIXEL: ROBOTIS DYNAMIXEL X-Series Smart Aktor | MYBOTSHOP.DE actuator which is having a force control etc. implemented and using a rod + nut as well for linear movement.
Have a nice day!
