Synopses & Reviews
System requirements for disc: IBM PC or compatible; Windows; CD-ROM drive.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
Book News Annotation:
Uchino (electrical engineering, Pennsylvania State U.) and Giniewicz (physics, Indiana U. of Pennsylvania) overview the design and application of actuator devices for micromechatronic systems, including coverage of practical materials, drive and control techniques, new technologies, and manufacturing concepts. The book may be used as a reference or text or graduate students and industrial engineers working in electronic materials, control system engineering, optical communications, precision machinery, and robotics. Topics include recent developments in micropositioning technology; displacement transducer, motor, and ultrasonic motor applications; piezoelectric and electrorestrictive phenomena; and technological and economic impact of micromechatronics. The included CD-ROM contains a 57-minute video demonstrating finite-element modeling and showing examples of commercially available actuators.

This reference reveals the most significant technologies, procedures, and trends in the design and application of actuator devices for micromechatronic systems. It addresses critical design and manufacturing concepts, as well as challenges in the modeling and regulation of electromechanical losses and heat generation in actuator devices. Accompanied by a CD-ROM demonstrating examples of finite-element modeling and previously developed and commercially available actuators, Micromechatronics provides insight into the future of this evolving field, and considers recent developments in micropositioning technology and displacement transducer, motor, and ultrasonic motor applications.
