"Linear Actuators Design Guide"

In this Design Guide, we’ll focus on actuators employing these three variations and the applications for which they are most suitable. We’ll also do a deeper dive on one option for linear-actuator guide technology.

Many applications call for the use of electromechanical actuators — which include electric motors paired with mechanical devices for converting the motor’s rotary motion into linear motion. 

Most electric actuators turn an electric motor’s power into linear motion in one of three ways: 

  • Through a rack-and-pinion set
  • Through a chain or belt (via a sprocket or pulley mounted to the motor output)
  • Through a screw drive — whether ballscrew, leadscrew, or roller screw
