What Is a Miniature Linear Actuator?

You may be surprised to know that you interact with a miniature linear actuator in everyday machinery without knowing it. A micro linear actuator is vital for many motion control systems to move and control objects.  Miniature actuators can be mechanical, electric, hydraulic, or pneumatically powered. Most of them consist of a basic construction with […]

Linear Actuator Lift System

There’s a chance you’ve seen a linear actuator system as they exist in many industries, from farming to hospital applications. Linear actuators are motors that transfer rotational energy to linear movements, working only in one direction and moving across in a straight line. How much can a linear actuator lift? Keep reading to find out. […]
