A Guide to the Selection
21 November 2012
Specifying linear motion systems isn’t the black art many engineers think it is. Mike Hughes, Applications Engineer at Schaeffler UK, provides some useful tips and guidance for engineers on how to select the most suitable linear actuators for single and multi-axis positioning systems.
In selecting linear actuators for single and multi-axis handling & positioning systems, terminology can be confusing. Many engineers commonly refer to linear actuators as ‘linear modules’
