Industrial Linear Actuators that work best in Hazardous Situations

It is understood that precision and reliability are the primary reasons why mechanical engineers prefer using electric linear actuators over fluid power actuators in critical powertrain applications. But what about in high temperature environments and combustible situations? Some electric linear actuator manufacturers have developed solutions that you may find interesting. Pneumatic actuators have been the […]

What is an Actuator? And What Kind Do I Need?

Shopping for the right components for your automatic control processes means weighing the needs of the system in terms of performance against both the costs and the timing demands necessary to produce it to order. This means that when you are designing those systems, you need actuators with the precision to meet your quality control […]

Figuring Out Which Actuator is Right for Our Needs

An actuator is designed to control the flow of liquids, gases, steam through a mechanical system. The actuator device more often than not receives a control signal electronically that instructs a motor to power the valve or damper system to open, close or partially move based upon the flow control needs of that mechanical system. […]
