Use of linear actuator to rotate a part
« on: April 01, 2017, 09:18:15 PM »
Hi all, new to the forums.  I've been racking my brain for days on on how to use a linear actuator to cause a part to rotate 180? on axis with the actuator.  It's similar to this youtube video I found using a high helix lead screw, but some of these lead screws have high static loads in excess of what my actuator can provide.  Ideas?  I'm open to anything as long as it's really compact.
