Changing Entertainment Experiences with Electro-Mechanical Screw Jacks

There has been a significant shift in the Entertainment Industry to move away from manual and hydraulic operated systems to electro-mechanical screw jacks. The key reasons are safety, cleanliness, sound and reliability.

Providing the ultimate entertainment experience dates back to the Colosseum days, where lifts and trap doors were all part of making people, animals and staging all of a sudden appear. The Entertainment Industry still uses these techniques today, but how they operate has changed dramatically in recent years by using electro-mechanical screw jacks. White Paper Courtesy of DieQua

2 Reduce Your Linear Motion Assemblies to a Single Component with Motorized Lead Screw Actuators (December 2019)

When it comes to specifying linear motion within a machine, system designers have many options from which to choose. Making the right choice can impact the ease of installation, footprint and cost of operation.

3 Realizing the High Precision Load Handling Benefits of Rodless Electromechanical Actuators (February 2019)

Electromechanical rodless linear actuators can offer better load handling in smaller spaces than rod-style actuators, but realizing those benefits requires careful attention at the specification level. Whether you are replacing a failed actuator, looking for better performance or building a new application from the ground up, success depends on how precisely you specify application requirements.

6 Seeking Higher Ground (March 2016)

Even for a toddlin town famous for making “no small plans” — such as, for example, reversing in 1900 the Chicago River to secure clean drinking water, or rebuilding itself seemingly overnight after the devastating “Great Chicago Fire” (1871) — to physically — and successfully — elevate itself as much as 14 feet above its original ground level defies not only description but credulity.
