Linear Actuator FAQs

What does a linear actuator do?

A linear actuator is a device that helps to convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. Linear actuators provide the mechanical thrust to move a payload in a linear direction.

What are the advantages of linear actuators?

Linear actuators are a fully designed solution, saving both time and money. Specified to meet the needs of each application, the customer can easily integrate a linear actuator into a system to achieve the moving element required.

What is the lifespan of a linear actuator?

The lifespan of a linear actuator is dependent on the load that is applied. For example, if it is working with a load of only 10% of its capacity, it will work for longer than if it is working at 90% of its load capacity.

How to synchronise two linear actuators?

Linear actuators can be synchronised electronically by connecting two or more synchronous electric motors. They can also be synchronised by having a single motor and mechanically linking the actuators via a drive shaft or coupling, which is a more cost effective option.

How to choose a linear actuator?

Choosing which linear actuator to specify will depend on the application parameters, considering factors such as speed, environment, drive force and load.
