For almost any large project, typically the hardest part is getting started—with so many decisions to make and alternatives to consider, the process can quickly become daunting. For industrial automation engineers, this can be especially true in choosing a linear actuator. Linear actuators are available in a wide range of types, sizes, capabilities, and protection levels. Sorting through these available options...

An effective actuator is one that fits and performs precisely in a given application. In this context, precision refers to how well the actuator achieves the force and speed the application requires and to the precision of the actuator’s manufacturing. In other words, a precise actuator functions and fits as intended within the system for which it is designed.
In electromechanical linear motion systems, accuracy and repeatability are key to measuring the performance of an actuator. These two factors define the proper production techniques that are key for the standardization and consistency required when automating manufacturing processes.
When building a mechanical linear system, what if you could not only work with one of the best companies that specializes in designing linear motion solutions, but also combine the electromechanical actuator(s) and motor(s) you need in one convenient bundle? Now you can!
There’s a lot to consider when selecting the electromechanical actuator that will be the best fit for your system. However, once you consider the parameters and know the type of actuator you need, Hunt Valve Actuator Division makes it easy for you to take the next steps online.
When it comes to selecting an electromechanical actuator (EMA), there are a number of parameters you need to take into consideration. But before you get to those, you need to know the following answers to understand the basic requirements of your system:
Selecting an electromechanical actuator (EMA) requires understanding the parameters for what you need it to do. However, there are only two basic types: ram-style and rodless. There are strengths and weaknesses to both and defining your operating conditions will help clarify which will be the appropriate choice for your needs.
