Types of Actuators
Mimicking pneumatic and hydraulic cylinder designs with an extending rod, these units can be a great replacement option for older systems— but also offer great advantage for new designs as well.
With usable travel isolated within the OAL of the unit, a carriage typically traverses back and forth and provides a mounting surface for tooling or payloads. These devices may be driven by belts, ballscrews or linear motors depending on the requirements of the application.
For the ultimate in speed, precision and control, linear motor actuators offer machine designers an excellent choice for demanding applications.
