Linear Actuators

Linear actuators create a straight line motion and have been designed to withstand a range of operating conditions.


Actuators work by converting energy produced by an electric motor into torque which then moves a mechanism. The control system of an actuator can be controlled mechanically, electrically, software driven or operated by a human.


Unlike pneumatic and hydraulic actuators electric actuators commonly have excellent duty cycles. The duty cycle refers to the amount of time an actuator can be run before it needs to cool down. If the duty cycle is exceeded it can lead to power loss, overheating and eventual burnout of the motor.


Due to the higher efficiency, energy savings and noise reduction of electric actuators, it has become common place to replace current pneumatic systems with these electromechanical devices.


Features and Benefits


  • Resistant to a wide range of temperatures, chemicals, dirt, dust, shock and vibration

  • Robust

  • Adaptable to application needs

  • Reduce assembly costs

  • Increase machine productivity

  • Reduced environmental impact

  • Less maintenance needed


  • Where would you use a linear actuator?


    Linear actuators can be used for many general industrial or specific applications. They are able to perform with high load capacities, high operating speeds and aesthetically designed systems.


    Linear actuators are used in machine tools, industrial machinery, office or home automation as well as solar tracking systems.
