Linear actuators create motion in straight lines. In contrast to the circular motion of a conventional electric motor, linear actuators are used in machine tools and industrial machinery, in computer peripherals such as disk drives and printers, in valves and dampers, and in many other places where linear motion is required. The linear motion is inherent to hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders. A rotating motor can generate linear motion using many other mechanisms.There are two basic types of linear actuators: belt-driven and ball-driven.A belt-type linear module consists of a belt, a linear guide, an aluminum alloy profile, a coupling, a motor, and a photoelectric switch.The ball screw linear module consists of a ball screw, linear guide rail, aluminum alloy profile, ball screw support seat, coupling, motor, and photoelectric switch.
Industry application field for linear actuators
Among the many applications for linear modules include dispensing, positioning, and inspection of semiconductor liquid crystal devices, medical precision analyzer platforms, wafer inspection, three-coordinate inspection machines, and large-scale printing, scanning, 3D printing equipment manufacturing, processing, experimental equipment semiconductor manufacturing equipment、flat panel display (FPD) precision testing equipment、laser equipment, machine vision testing equipment、electronic components, PCB testing equipment、logistics equipment, and other industries.
