What is an actuator?

In the everyday representation of the name of the essentially identical mechanisms are often mixed. Differences between the concepts: actuators, linear displacement drives, linear mechanisms are practically absent.

Some names define minor, but important differences. For example, an electric cylinder is essentially a linear actuator. At the same time, the electric cylinder is a mechanism developed for high loads and complex linear displacement.

Actuators - compact mechanisms, the scope of which is quite diverse: from the military industry, lifts and combines to household purposes - the opening of doors, trunks, gates, etc.

Principle of operation of the actuator

Rotational motion of the shaft is converted into a translational movement of the rod. In this way, linear movement, as a rule, occurs over short distances.

In our catalog are models designed for various loads and speeds of movement. Do you need an electric cylinder with precise positioning (up to a fraction of a millimeter)? Looking for an actuator used for high operational loads?

Call us, we will recommend the models suitable for your tasks.
