Top of the Line Linear Actuators
A linear actuator is something that creates motion from a circular force and converts the force into a linear motion. Think about a computer disc drive or a DVD slot in a DVD player. Circular motion from inside the machine is converted to linear motion so that the slot can open and close to insert a disc. That wouldn't be possible without a linear actuator!
Specialty Motions, INC has a great selection of linear actuators. They have many different sizes available with customizable stroke lengths that can be used for a variety of products and hardware. These actuators are very strong and durable. Some can hold up to 14,500 pounds! Depending on the project, you can get single or multi-axis devices. Many fields use linear actuators. Is yours one?
