Linear actuators provide linear motion via a motor driven ball screw, lead screw, acme screw, or belt drive assembly.
Air cylinders are pneumatic linear actuators that are driven by a pressure differential in the cylinder's chambers. They may be single-acting (with a spring return) or double-acting.
Feed escapements are used for individually feeding parts from hoppers, conveyors, magazines, tracks, and vibratory feeders.
Hydraulic cylinders are actuation devices that utilize pressurized hydraulic fluid to produce linear motion and force.
Lifting columns are self-supporting, telescopic actuators for lifting and height adjustment.
Electric linear actuators have an output rod that provides linear motion via a motor driven ball screw, lead screw or ACME screw assembly. The actuator's load is attached to the end of a screw or rod and is often unsupported.
Linear thrusters use double-acting pneumatic cylinders or hydraulic cylinders mated to shafts and plates to provide reoccurring linear motion They are used in conveying, inspection systems, and lifting applications, or to apply thrust load
Piezoelectric actuators are devices that produce a small displacement with a high force capability when voltage is applied.
Thermal actuators produce a linear movement - or stroke - as a result of the expansion and contraction of a thermally sensitive material within them.
