Electric rodless actuators have an inherent advantage over rod-style actuators for being able to support and carry loads. This reduces costs and design time by eliminating the need for other load-bearing and guiding elements. In contrast to rod-style actuators, a rodless actuator’s stroke lies completely within the length of its body, resulting in a smaller working footprint than rod-style actuators. In addition, electric rodless actuators can be either screw- or belt-driven, with each style having its own advantages depending on the application. However, sizing an electric rodless actuator involves more than merely calculating force and stroke.
