push mechanism



im thinking of building a robot with a carriage at its end effector. the robot is functioned to carry objects on the built carriage and to be pushed away from carriage to another port. I am hoping that anyone could tell me, what kind of mechanism is suitable to be used for a light robot that can be used for many times other than pneumatic and hydraulic approaches? thank you.

Could you describe this carriage device in more detail? (diagrams?)

I am assuming you are building a robot arm of some sort?

you might want to look at rack and pinion

but you could also hack an old cd drive to get a short linear motion if that's what you're talking about, you know, the eject functnion.
You could try a solenoid with levers attatched to it to increase the push distance.
