Overview

Micro linear servo actuator, mightyZAP has been developped for precise linear position control in small space.
The key feature of mightyZAP is a miniaturazation which integrates motor, gear box, circuitry and other linear mechanical parts in single small case. We realized miniaturation with durable lifespan, robust force comparing to its size, and reliable repeatability (within 50μm). Force & speed are varied according to gear ratio for a model and that is, the stronger force, the slower speed.
Economical lineup mightyZAP has been developped for educational/hobby applications at reliable price.

 

Control mightyZAP along with various API/library such as Arduino, C++, C#, JAVA and Python. Best tool to learn programming languages.
