Fast actautors are used when applications require a high speeds that maintain accuracy over long periods. These can be used in robotics, textiles and many other manufacturing applications.
Most tubular high-speed devices are designed for holding small amounts of force, allowing them to maintain their speed.
If visuals matter when choosing your actuator, a tubular actuation solution will be the way to go. The mechanics are contained within the tubular casing, meaning no unnecessary parts protrude or extend from the component.
With a diameter of only a few inches, this actuator can fit into small spaces. If space-conservation is your number one priority, these will fit your application. This is especially true for applications such as robotics, where the total amount of space can determine the efficient function of a robot.
These devices can help you save on energy. Not only do they draw low power from your AC or DC power source, they are more efficient than hydraulic or pneumatic solutions. Over the course of a few years, they become 80% more efficient than other solutions.
You may be looking for an actuator that hasn't been made yet. If this is the case, you can find one with us. A tubular linear motor can be customized for a specific application. If you are seeking a higher force, specific mounting options, speeds or other specifications, one can be made to fit.
If you're thinking about a solution, keep these considerations in mind when selecting the proper one for the job.
THese devices are designed for low amounts of force. Be sure to know exactly what your force requirements are before making a selection.
Calculate just how fast you will need to move before you make your choice.
If your reasons for purchasing a quick linear actuator are space conservation, then know just how small the space is that will need to hold the actuator. This is where a customizable component can be helpful. If there are no 'in-stock' items that fit your requirements, you can create one that will suit your needs.
Because of the low power draw, these can run on 12 volts of power. Should you require a bigger voltage, again, this is where customizing will give you a personal solution.
Where are you going to be using your actuator? Is it for home use or use in industry? The environment will play a large role in determining which you choose. Selecting the wrong IP rating may result injury or complete failure. Think about whether there will be water or extreme temperatures where you're application will be working.
Think about how many you need to control in operation. There are many different types of motion control systems, allowing both simultaneous, non-simultaneous, wired and wireless options.
