Abstract

The generation of motions is a crucial task of technical systems. Depending on the application, these requirements can constitute a large variety of barely comparable criteria. Currently, the actuator selection is based on design-catalogues and product-catalogues of individual manufacturers. Most of them are specialized on particular active principles and drive system solutions. So far, there is no general support for the actuator selection task. An decision aid for actuator selection based on a database using arbitrary parameters will be presented.
