I'm currently thinking about creating a small piano-like (but of course nowhere as big or complicated) music box which can be digitally controlled with a microcontroller. Therefore I need to know which kind of electronic component has the ability of creating a rapid movement throwing up a kind of "hammer" against a string.
It should be able to have a maximum speed of 0.2 m/s with a maximum force of ~45N. Minimal speed should be approximately 0.05 m/s with a force of only 5N.
Is there a component which fits these requirements? (Or do you have any other suggestions how I could solve this?)
[I initially wanted to post this on the electronics-forum, but I assume the one for engineering fits my question better, if I'm incorrect, I apologize]
