Linear actuator article round-up

Linear actuators are important pieces of industrial automation equipment. Without them parts wouldn’t move into place for the next production step, finished goods wouldn’t get to the right palate, and tools might not reach the spot they need to be in to do their work.

A lot rides on these automation components, so engineers need to know as much about them as they can. At Tolomatic linear motion is our core expertise.  We watch what’s written in key trade publications. Here’s a round-up of recent articles that will help you learn more about linear motion.

Integrated linear actuator increases manufacturing efficiency

Production cost and efficiency are important considerations in all manufacturing, but these factors take on critical status in some segments. Small-engine production is one of these.  Using the right linear actuator can boost efficiency and reduce cost.

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.
