Frequently asked questions
Linear actuators are motorized devices that convert rotational motion into linear motion to move an object in a linear direction. This mechanism uses an electric motor to generate the force needed to move the piston forward and backward along a linear path. Used in a variety of industrial applications, linear actuators have a guiding system that provides precise and smooth movement, and they can be controlled through an automation system. The use of linear actuators has several advantages: their compact configuration saves space and simplifies installation, while delivering high precision, smooth motion, and low noise. For these reasons, they are often used in applications that require precise and repetitive movements, such as industrial robots, semiconductor manufacturing machinery, and assembly machinery.
When selecting a linear actuator, several factors need to be considered to ensure the right one is chosen. First and foremost, the application needs to be taken into account; factors such as load capacity, speed, stroke length, and power source are essential and should be matched to the specific application requirements. The environment is also important, as harsh conditions may require a more robust and durable actuator. By considering these factors, the right linear actuator can be chosen, ensuring optimal performance and longevity for the specific application.
There are several types of linear actuators available in the market, and each type has its unique features and benefits. Electric linear actuators use an electric motor to drive a lead screw, acme screw or ball screw to move the shaft in a linear motion. The speed and accuracy of the movement are highly controllable with this type of actuator. In addition, linear actuators can differ in size and load capacity. They can range from smaller, more compact devices that can handle lighter loads to larger, high strength and speed devices. The choice of linear actuator depends on the specific application's requirements, such as speed, precision, power, and durability. By understanding the different types of linear actuators, you can choose the suitable one for your application.
