AUTOMOTIVE - ACTUATORS
Linear Actuators Description
Linear actuators are designed to generate mechanical linear motion by converting other forms of energy into mechanical energy. An actuator is usually an integral part of a motion control system in an automated assembly process. Linear actuators are almost always computer-controlled, although some can be guided by hand. A linear actuator can be powered by hydraulic, pneumatic, mechanical, electromechanical and piezoelectric force.
One purpose and application of linear actuators is to act as a mechanism that can transmit a very precise amount of energy to another mechanism or piece of equipment in a system. Linear actuator manufacturers contribute to the function of robotic processes in many different industries, including automotive, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, food, packaging and electronics.

ROTARY ACTUATORS : 02
ELECTRIC ROTARY ACTUATOR DESCRIPTION
Electric Rotary Actuators are electrically powered, mechanical devices consisting of motors and output shaft mechanisms with limited rotary travel which are used to convert electrical energy into rotational motion. Key specifications include the intended application; drive method, number of positions, output configuration, mounting configuration, as well as physical dimensions and electrical characteristics as required.
Electric rotary actuators are used primarily in automation applications when a gate, valve, etc. requires controlled movement to particular rotational positions. They are used in a wide range of industries where the required positioning is important. The actuators are driven by various motor types, voice coils, etc. Typical applications include quarter-turn valves, windows, robotics, etc.

HYDRAULIC ACTUATOR : 03
HYDRAULIC ACTUATOR DESCRIPTION
Hydraulic actuators consist of a cylinder or fluid motor that utilizes hydraulic power to facilitate mechanical process. The mechanical motion gives an output in terms of linear, rotary or oscillatory motion.
Since liquids are nearly incompressible, they take longer to gain speed and power and also to slow back down, but they can exert great force. The hydraulic actuator also allows for very precise control of the movement produced.
In linear hydraulic actuators, a typical set-up is made up of a hollow cylinder that contains a liquid, usually oil, and a piston that is inserted in it. When pressure is applied onto the piston, objects can be moved by the force produced. Hydraulic actuators can be operated manually, such as a hydraulic car jack, or they can be operated through a hydraulic pump, which can be seen in construction equipment such as cranes or excavators.

MECHANICAL ACTUATOR : 04
MECHANICAL ACTUATORS DESCRIPTION
These actuators combine a brushless servo-motor with either rotary or linear (output) actuation, assembling all elements into a compact, sealed housing for demanding environments.
Their built-in mechanical converters allow our actuators to eliminate the need for traditional ball screw or gear reduction mechanisms – they incorporate all the required position control and power electronics into the actuator itself, providing a complete system solution.
