Ford Focus 6DOF

Application

Exlar FT60 actuators used to power the Sim-Zilla Racing Simulator is unforgettable from the moment passengers step onto a custom built lift to ride up to the motion platform.
Its unique raised design and smooth, precisely controlled motions combine to give visitors a larger than life experience.

Customer

Established in 1978, Mannetron and its parent company, Studio One Midwest, Inc., occupy an 80,000 square foot facility in Battle Creek Michigan.

Our focus has always been making products that communicate, interact with audiences, and create unforgettable experiences. 

From three dimensional castings to giant moving video walls, we continue to build our reputation of being able to make the most impossible ideas work, beautifully.

The Challenge

Six high performance Exlar actuators controlled by Mannetron's proprietary Syncon Control System closely track the virtual race car's motion, enabling Sim-Zilla to utilize its full six degrees of freedom (up/down, forward/back, side/side, yaw, pitch, and roll).

The Solution

Fully mobile, with a quick set-up time and designed for easy break down for long distance transport, the Sim-Zilla Simulator is a unique racing experience specifically tailored for live events and trade shows.

Compact

Integrated Drive Electronics

High Strength

Reduced Maintenance

Results

Six high performance Exlar actuators controlled by Mannetron's proprietary Syncon Control System closely track the virtual race car's motion, enabling Sim-Zilla to utilize its full six degrees of freedom (up/down, forward/back, side/side, yaw, pitch, and roll).
