When placing an order of custom linear actuators, it is important to create a prototype first in order to fully understand its capabilities. The following points should be taken into consideration when designing a linear actuator prototype:
The prototype should also help you ascertain its efficiency and compatibility when in use. This can be done by testing the prototype a number of times. The tests will ensure its compatibility with different products and machines.
Before placing an order, you need to ensure that the prototype is being created with attention given to the size of the actuator and the type of external power source it will utilize.
With reference to the external power source, you can choose from electric, gear, DC, or stepper motor. Due importance should also be given to the application.
