Cable Carriers

Cable carriers support the heavy weight of numerous cables and hoses without sagging or putting stress on the cabling. They also prevent cable from tangling and snagging.


The function of gearing is to mesh with other gear elements to transmit altered torque and rotation. Review this classroom to learn more

Miniature engineered designs

This classroom covers miniature linear slides guides, sensors, encoders, gears, and motors
that lend themselves to
tiny designs.

Industrial power supplies

The editors of Design World present a library of FAQs, technical articles, and videos on industrial power supplies. 


In the conveyor classroom installment, there are more than a dozen references that detail types of material handling with conveyors. 

DC motors

 This classroom details the operation of dc brush motors, also called permanent-magnet (PM) dc motors … as well as the use of these motors in various in motion designs.

Integrated motors

Resources on integrated motors to differentiate the most common variations of these motion-control mainstays, and details on how to use the motors to satisfy requirements.

Vibration damping & shocks

The ultimate goal for design engineers is to build and tune designs for minimal vibration (free or forced) and render unavoidable system vibration damped (dissipated) or isolated. 

Servo drives

Servo systems consist of four main components — motor, drive, controller, and feedback. In some cases, a standalone controller determines required motor moves.

Top trends in linear motion technology: Part 2 of 2

The latest technologies for agriculture and off-highway automation

For the annual Design World Trends issue, we asked industry experts to share their insights into linear-motion trends. Here’s more of what they had to say on linear actuators, linear guides, and stages.

We recently asked several industry experts about trends they’re seeing in the design and use of linear actuators, linear guides, and stages. 

The editors recently asked a number of leading automation and motion control manufacturers involved in the agriculture and off-highway automation industries about trends they’re seeing in the industry.
