CHOOSING THE RIGHT ACTUATOR – Part 2

GUIDELINES TO PURCHASE AN ACTUATORConsider these variables when purchasing your actuators.Consider the motion profile. This will determine your need on minimum and maximum speed requirements.Load calculation. It is important to consider different components like friction load, inertial load, the external applied load and others. Note: calculations will also depend on the orientation of the actuator.Duty [...]

TYPES OF ELECTRIC ACTUATORS

Electric Linear Actuators are electrically powered, mechanical devices consisting of motors, linear guides, and drive mechanisms, used to convert electrical energy into linear displacement through mechanical transmission, electro-magnetism, or thermal expansion to provide straight line push/pull motion. They are used in a wide range of industries where linear positioning is needed. The actuators are driven [...]
