Open Source Manufacture for Actuators


  Open Source Manufacture of Actuators

The implementation of the actuator requires the manufacture of a number of parts.

(machining of soft magnetic steel, coil winding, plastic parts, permanent magnets, ...)

Plastic parts are manufactured using 3D Printers, and we're working on an open-source Coil Winder project for coil-winding.

Also, we are looking for ways to minimize the machining cost of the soft magnetic steel and permanent magnets.
