Positioning System Guide to Choosing the Correct Linear Actuator in 12 Steps – Part IV

  Traverse Speed The ball screws and bearings used in the linear actuator are the primary determinants of traverse speed and time. Typically, belt-driven linear actuators are faster than their ball screw, and linear bearing counterparts. Acceleration & Deceleration Rate In multi-positioning systems, acceleration by itself is not a crucial problem. The effect of acceleration
