Linier Actuators to Facilitate Your Work

Actuator is a mechanical device for moving or controlling a mechanism or system. It is operated by energy source, usually in the form of electrical current pressure, hydraulic fluid or pneumatic pressure, and converts that energy into a kind of movement. Mechanical actuators operate by converting rotating motion into linear motion, or vice versa. Conversion is usually done through a simple kind of mechanisms including: Screw: Screw jacks, ball screw and roller screw actuators all operate on the principle of simple machine known as a screw. By rotating the actuator nut, the screw shaft moves in the line. By moving the pivot screw, nut rotates.

DC motors are devices that convert electrical pulses into motion, has the same basic principles with a stepper motor, but its motion is continuous or ongoing. DC motors are divided into 2 types, namely: a DC motor with brushes (mechanical commutation), the motor has carbon brushes which serves as a modifier to the coil currents such that the direction of the motor torque will always be the same. DC motors without brushes, using semi-conductors to alter or reverse the flow so as pulse that drives the motor. Commonly used in servo systems, because it has high efficiency, long service life, low electrical noise level, because the rotation is smooth like a stepper, but spins continuously without any step.

Nowdays many people use the linear actuators to facilitate their work. If you want an actuator to be in the count, try coming to a Progressive Automations. You can buy them online. With 18 months warranty gives advantage to you as a guarantee if you buy an actuator to function properly. Actuators that are sold by this store have a high standard with a low enough price.
