Webinar: Linear Actuators – Types and Function Linear actuators Webinars/Tutorials What are the different types of linear actuators and how do they differ? How do I find the right lead screw and why is the thread lead so important? The Nanotec experts will answer these and all other questions in our 20 minute webinar. We’ve embedded content from YouTube here. As YouTube may collect personal data and transfer it to third parties, we’ll only load the video after you consent. Please refer to our Privacy Statement for details. Consent and Play We provide you with equations for converting torque into thrust and also discuss these topics in detail: Types of threaded nuts Axial backlash Criteria for self-locking Extending the service life When used with a closed-loop controller, the linear actuators from Nanotec can be controlled via fieldbus, clock & direction or analog/digital inputs. The feed force can also be controlled when the linear actuators are combined with an encoder. You can find further information on Nanotec’s range of actuators on these pages: Linear actuators with stepper motor.
