Information on how, where and why track actuators are used
A linear actuator is a mechanism that converts force, usually rotary, and creates linear motion. They can come in a large variety of shapes, sizes and models but today we will be focusing on one of the more unique models, a track linear actuator. Track linear actuators work like this; their range of motion is enclosed in a track instead of extending freely, ideal for devices that require fixed vertical or horizontal motion. What this means is that they can be much stronger and more durable than a traditional actuator due to it having a pre-defined path for the force, as well as offering more support.
