Linear Actuators: Types and Traits

A Linear Actuator is different from electric motor because it applies power in a linear way instead of rotationally. The linear motion might be achieved in different ways and a linear actuator is among the devices that may covert rotational motion to linear motion.Mechanical typeA mechanical actuator converts the rotary motion to linear displacement by screws/gears to which a knob is attached. One of the renowned examples of mechanical actuator is a jackscrew or automobile jack. Mechanical actuator is utilized in lasers and optics for manipulating the position of mirror mounts, linear stages and lots of more positioning instruments.Hydraulic typeA hydraulic actuator or cylinder has a hole cylinder with a piston inside it. Managed linear displacement of the piston is achieved by pressurizin...
