With today’s demand for controlling costs while achieving high speed and high precision in factory automation, it is more important than ever to fully analyze a linear actuator application and precisely determine a project’s parameters. This is especially true with electric rod-style actuators due to their higher initial cost, more advanced design and more predictable performance compared to fluid power cylinders, both pneumatic and hydraulic. Additional engineering and analysis at the front end of an electric actuator application will reduce overall costs and result in automation systems with higher reliability, better performance, lower energy expenditures and reduced maintenance.
In the hurry to get factory automation applications up and running, there is always the impulse to make educated guesses or take shortcuts. This paper will outline the top ten tips to consider during sizing to ensure optimal performance, reliability and efficiency of your electric rod-style actuator application.
