suggestions needed for cuckoo clock motor

suggestions needed for cuckoo clock motor

suggestions needed for cuckoo clock motor

i'm hoping someone can suggest a type of motor and control device for a project i'm working on. the motor has to push out a small (8" square) shelf through two spring loaded doors, pause for 5-10 seconds, and then retract the shelf. can anyone suggest what type of motor, drive, and control that would work for this project? Thanks

RE: suggestions needed for cuckoo clock motor

Suggestion: The servo motor will be preferable to the squirrel cage induction motor if  very frequent cycling is needed. There is a good selection of those motors on
type Motors: Servo under Product / Service which will return 283 companies to choose from. Some businesses offer a complete hardware set for the project. You will have to provide interface information, e.g. travel distance, torque, power supply voltage, frequency, cycling, etc.
