How does a Linear Actuator work?

Linear actuators work by moving an object or piece of equipment in a straight line, moving an object extremely accurately and repeatably if required. The primary reason for designing a linear actuator right into a system is for the necessity to move a payload in a linear fashion quite than a rotary one. As most typical electrical motors are rotary, a linear actuator is used to transform rotary motion to linear motion.The electrical motor is generally connected to the linear actuator by a flexible coupling or a belt, enabling the motor to be mounted either axially or perpendicular to the linear actuator. A wide range of motor sizes will be mounted to these actuators depending on requirements.Linear actuators have incorporated linear bearings that assist the moving payload, as well as rotary...
