A Resource on Electric Linear Actuators: What a machine designer needs to know Industrial automation counts on the reliable motion control that linear actuators provide. Lately, electric linear actuators have gotten more popular because they offer better control of variables like speed, acceleration, position and force than pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders. Electric actuators also offer superior accuracy and repeatability, as well as programmable control that can handle even complex motion profiles. In many applications they can do all this at a lower cost of ownership than pneumatic or hydraulic actuators. Now there’s a resource from Tolomatic that lays out all the issues a designer needs to understand in order to select the best electric linear actuator for an application.
