How can a linear actuator benefit you?

LINEAR ACTUATORS are an ideal solution for those looking for a powerful, easy to use motion product for a wide range of applications. An actuator can be used for either pushing or pulling with the ability to lift weights of up to 1000kg.

No hoses or pumps are needed for operation of a linear actuator, unlike hydraulic and pneumatic systems, resulting in a product that’s easy to install with little or no maintenance required.

Linear actuators are generally available in 12v and 24v DC and can be operated via a control system or a simple switch.

Here are a few of the benefits of using a linear actuator:

  • Aluminium and steel construction
  • Acme and ball screw drive
  • Customisation
  • Clutch or internal limit switches
  • Economical
  • Easy installation
  • IP66 protection available
  • Long life
  • Low maintenance
  • Wide speed range
  • 5 year warranty
  • Local technical support from the TecHome team
