A Tubular Linear Actuator is a type of actuator that is designed in a cylindrical or tubular form. It is primarily used in applications where space is limited, and precise linear motion is required, such as in medical devices, robotics, and industrial machinery.
The main difference is the design. Tubular Linear Actuators have a compact, cylindrical shape that allows them to fit into tight spaces. They also often offer smoother and quieter operation compared to other types of linear actuators.
Key factors to consider include the load capacity, speed, stroke length, voltage, and the environmental conditions the actuator will be exposed to. The size and shape of the actuator are also important considerations, especially for applications with limited space.
Yes, many manufacturers offer customisation options for their Tubular Linear Actuators. This can include custom stroke lengths, mounting options, and even specific control systems to suit your application's needs.
