Linear actuators are becoming increasingly popular, with many companies now choosing to replace their existing pneumatic cylinders with electric actuators. The electric cylinder high-performance actuator is fast becoming the preferred choice for factories and processing plants around the world, due to its increased energy efficiency and much lower greenhouse gas emissions, which make it a more environmentally friendly and cost effective solution.
If you would like help in selecting the correct actuator for your application, our linear specialists are on hand and can assist you with your selection.
Linear actuators offer a potentially simple and quick solution for an X-Y or X-Y-Z stage. Belt driven actuators are very useful for long stroke applications, where strokes in excess of 10m are possible.
Positioning linear actuator construction is often an aluminium extrusion, to which linear guide rails are fitted, with drive coming from either a belt or ball screw. A variety of motors are fitted according to the application.
