Spike Dynamics' Spiketon actuator is made up of stacked piezoelectric elements that expand almost simultaneously when required, similar to other amplified actuators, but resulting in a longer stroke without the need for a bulky lever system. Spiketon is lightweight, fast, and small, and has a longer stroke. Spiketon may be implemented from different materials, such as steel, titanium alloy or even ceramics. These technical solutions helps to create actuators with 20x advantage in size, weight, and/or power. This makes Spiketon actuators an ideal choice for applications where space and mass are critical factors. Due to the small size and mass, using Spiketon as a component for more complex devices is more convenient than any other solution.
Spiketon’s unique features make Spiketon a game-changer in various fields, including robotics, IoT, and precision manufacturing. In robotics, Spiketon can be used to create highly precise and accurate movements in robotic arms, fingers, and legs, enabling the robot to perform complex tasks with ease. In IoT, Spiketon can be used in sensors, actuators, and other devices that require fast and precise movements. In precision manufacturing, Spiketon can be used to create high-precision machines for manufacturing small and delicate components.
The Spiketon linear actuator and electrically controlled clutch system developed by Spike Dynamics are innovative solutions that provide high precision and strength for use in various applications. These solutions are compact, reliable, and customizable, making these ideal solutions for use in small devices as well as larger systems when the challenges are weight, size, temperature range, and precision. With the potential to construct very high power density devices, these solutions have many possible applications in different industries. Spike Dynamics continues to innovate and improve these solutions to meet the changing needs of Spike Dynamics customers. Spike Dynamics is committed to further research and development of this technology to make these solutions more accessible and affordable to all.
