12 September 2017

ETEL, a Switzerland-based company that has exclusive North American distribution through HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION in Schaumburg, IL, has announced its new ZAO Force-Controlled Actuator, adding to its range of advanced motion systems. Among other applications, ZAO is suited for semiconductor pick and place, die bonding and probing machines.

The ZAO Force-Controlled Actuator aims to provide the user with a solution to reduce machine cost of ownership while taking up the next force control challenge.

ZAO is a 30-mm travel actuator featuring a frictionless bearing arrangement and a light moving mass, aiming to ensure very low and repeatable force application as well as low force overshoot at impact on a contact surface.
