I'm trying to devise a system to lift a 10kg weight a distance of 1.4m vertically, and allow it to move in/out a distance of 30cm. I'd like the motions to be able to occur simultaneously if possible.
I'm thinking for the vertical motion I can use a suspended climber system. However I am unsure as to how I devise a system for the horizontal motion (in the horizontal plane I need nothing to protrude - only when the device is told to extend, so a horizontal suspended climber system isn't a possible solution.
I'm thinking I will need to use 2 electric motors.
Also - I'd like to mount it to the side of a car - so lightweight and low power draw is a must.
Does anyone know if there is anything available that will do this? Or suggest how I could combine a couple of systems to make this work?
Any information is appreciated.
