Positioning linear actuators are used to provide linear positioning of loads, often large. Many different versions are available, providing differing performance characteristics. These actuators typically offer repeatability positioning from a few microns to 100 microns, with loads from a few grams to 1000s kgs. Construction is often an aluminium extrusion, to which linear guide rails are fitted, with drive coming from either a belt or ball screw. Belt driven actuators are very useful for long stroke applications, where strokes in excess of 10m are possible. A variety of motors are fitted according to the application.
