Applications of Linear Actuators in Arts & Entertainment
The following are a few application examples of linear actuators for the entertainment industry.
Film production houses utilize camera sliders, which consist of linear actuators. These are used to create smooth and flowing camera movements.
In amusement parks, linear actuators are used to create the movement of horror house monsters. The monster dummy is placed on a slider mechanism, and the linear actuator creates high speed movements to move the dummy.
For theatre productions, linear actuators are used to enable the movements of certain parts of the stage and backdrop.
Linear actuators are also used in theme park rides. They are specifically used for the rides with vertical or horizontal movements. The linear motor converts electricity into mechanical motion to accelerate the ride’s speed.
