Linear Actuators

Linear Actuators for Reliable Operations and Durable Performance

Linear actuators are designed to initiate precision movements in applications where lifting, pushing, pulling, sliding, and tilting of a load happens. The actuation in these actuators may be created through electrical, electrohydraulic, hydraulic, and pneumatic designs. Electric linear actuators are the most popular linear actuator types and are fitted with DC or AC motors. These actuators are fitted with acme lead screws or ball screws, which can control their motion while extending or retracting. We, at Venture Manufacturing, provide a comprehensive range of linear motion actuators in 12-120V configurations in different stroke lengths, capacities, and speeds. All our linear actuators including electric linear actuators and various types of industrial linear actuators can be customized to meet your specific requirements. Contact us today to build a perfect linear actuator for your standard or special motion needs.

Important Actuator Terminologies Discussed

  • Static Load or Holding Load: The force applied to the linear motion actuator when it is not moving is known as static load.
  • Dynamic Load: This is the force applied to the linear motion actuator when it is moving or being used for push or pull. Dynamic load is also known as lifting or working load.
  • Side Loading: The force applied perpendicular to the shaft is known as side loading. This is also known as eccentric loading or radial loading. Side loading is not recommended because it can cause excessive wear and binding, which can affect the actuator’s performance.
  • Duty Cycle Rating: This is expressed as a percentage of time when the actuator works.  
  • Absolute Accuracy: This is the difference between the desired and actual position. This may be affected by factors like drift, backlash, hysteresis, the measurement system, the drive’s non-linearity, and so on.  
  • Bidirectional Repeatability: This refers to the accuracy with which an actuator returns to its original position after any change in the position.
  • Power Consumption: This is the maximum power consumed by the actuator when it is operated under full load.
  • Push/Pull Force: This is the force delivered by the actuator when the device is in motion. When you see the push/pull force mentioned on an actuator, it will be the maximum force offered by the actuator.
  • Push/Pull Speed: This is the speed at which the actuator will retract and extend to its maximum permissible position.  
  • Stroke: This is the difference between the fully retracted length and fully extended length of the actuator. In other words, the stroke is the maximum movement the actuator can achieve.
  • Motor Speed: This is the maximum rotational speed achieved by the motor. It is expressed as RPM (revolutions per minute).
  • Motor Power: This is the maximum power consumed by the motor of the device when the electric linear actuator is operated at the full load.

Frequently Asked Questions on Linear Actuators

  • How can I choose the right linear actuator for my application?
The choice of the right linear actuator will depend on your application requirements. If you are choosing the electric linear actuator, choose the one more force than required to move the object. Next, you need to focus on the stroke length, which is needed for the in-and-out motions. Other factors you need to address are – power consumption, type of positional feedback required, IP rating, voltage, mounting method, stroke length, force, and connectors. 

  • Can I increase or decrease the speed of a linear actuator?
The speed of the actuator is controlled by factors like the voltage, gear ratio, and force. However, you can normally increase or decrease the speed of an actuator using a speed controller.  

  • Do you offer lubricated lead screws? Do they need regular lubrication?
Yes, we provide lubricated lead screws; they do not normally need regular lubrication. By this, we mean that all our linear actuators, including electric linear actuators feature screws that are lubricated for a lifetime. They require no additional lubrication under regular operating conditions. 

  • How can I extend the life of an industrial linear actuator?
Although our industrial linear actuators are designed to ensure long-term performance in challenging, you can extend their lifespan in the following ways:

o Minimizing the load applied 
o Proper mounting 
o Minimizing the instances of side loading
