Why single-source your electric linear motion systems

The trend in industrial component sourcing is to eliminate waste, reduce costs and improve efficiency. This often means consolidating suppliers into single-source relationships. Single sourcing can build stronger relationships with suppliers, boost system performance and increase the speed of procurement.

Machine designers can use a single-source approach to reduce time spent on sourcing, installing and testing electric linear motion systems.

The easy way to get a complete electric linear motion solution

When your machine design calls for electric linear motion, you have lots of decisions to make. Like what actuator to use…and what motor. Select the right actuator and it will reward you with top performance, reliability and long service life. But an electric actuator that’s not up to the task can be a long-term problem. Then there’s motor selection and mounting.  It can be a tough and touchy process. Even if you integrate the actuator and motor yourself, our Your Motor Here® program (YMH) will take the guesswork out of selecting and integrating the motor when you use one of our actuators.

Motor mounting for electric linear motion

The motor is the power behind an electric linear motion system. An essential component. Designers can choose from a variety of motor types – stepper, servo, induction – and a myriad of motor manufacturers. Different applications will have different motor requirements.  For those who elect to handle their own motor mounting, we’ve developed a new Technical Note on the subject.

Motor selection for electric linear motion. Stepper vs servo

An electric linear motion system needs a motor. Unlike pneumatic cylinders that are powered by a central air compressor, electric linear actuators are powered by electric motors. The mechanisms in the actuator convert the motor’s rotary motion into linear motion. Machine designers can choose either servo or stepper motors for their electric linear actuator applications.

Electric linear actuators and motors. Getting the right fit.

An electric linear actuator can outperform a pneumatic model with superior control of speed, position, and force as well as provide better accuracy and repeatability. But that superior performance comes with complexity. Pneumatic cylinders commonly are simple, easy-to-understand components, while electric linear actuators are systems comprised of a motor, controller, cables, and actuator. Plus attaching a motor to an actuator usually requires some kind of adaptor or housing.
