SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT WITH ELECTRIC LINEAR ACTUATORS

SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT WITH ELECTRIC LINEAR ACTUATORS

With the wide use of motion devices across a wide range of industries, their potential to create a greener world in the years to come is huge. Electric linear actuators are a viable alternative to other motion devices, and they cut down on the harmful emissions. Put up against hydraulic and pneumatic actuators, electric actuators are a much more environmentally sound option, and here’s why.

Hydraulic Motion

5 TIPS ON ACTUATOR INSTALLATION

5 TIPS ON ACTUATOR INSTALLATION

by Ajay Arora

Proper actuator installation is key for best performance.

If your linear actuator has been installed correctly, it'll perform better over time and live through its complete life cycle. Use our tips as a checklist before you turn on your project. The risks of improper actuator installation mean two things. First, your actuator may not perform the way you want it to. It may not have enough room, it could bind, or it could stop working altogether. Second, improper installation could mean your actuator lasts for much less of its expected life than you thought.

ELECTRICAL LINEAR ACTUATOR VS HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS

ELECTRICAL LINEAR ACTUATOR VS HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS

What Is A Linear Actuator?

A linear actuator, simply put, is a device that converts energy into motion in a straight line. There are various ways to do this. Some actuators are hydraulic, some are pneumatic, some are electric and there are other newer types that move more like muscles. We're just going to focus on the difference between hydraulic and electric linear actuators in this article.

HOBBYIST USES FOR LINEAR ACTUATORS

HOBBYIST USES FOR LINEAR ACTUATORS

Looking for some linear actuator ideas for hobby automation?

For the home hobbyist who likes building and inventing, knowing about linear actuators is a must. Actuators are simply mechanisms that convert energy into movement along a straight line. A regular motor differs from a linear actuator in that a motor creates rotational movement. There is a device available for every conceivable use by a hobbyist.

The Many Roles
