Linear Actuators: Types and Traits

A Linear Actuator is different from electric motor because it applies drive in a linear way instead of rotationally. The linear motion may be achieved in several ways and a linear actuator is among the devices that can covert rotational motion to linear motion.Mechanical typeA mechanical actuator converts the rotary motion to linear displacement through screws/gears to which a knob is attached. One of many renowned examples of mechanical actuator is a jackscrew or automotive jack. Mechanical actuator is utilized in lasers and optics for manipulating the position of mirror mounts, linear stages and plenty 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 pressur...
