Linear and rotational actuators

HOME / Applications / Actuators, Solenoids & Electromechanical / Linear and rotational actuators

Electromagnetic actuators are electromechanical components used to convert electrical power to a mechanical motion. they cover translational and rotational motion. DC actuators are generally composed of permanent magnets, solenoids and ferromagnetic parts.

Magnetic actuators use electromagnetic fields to convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. Depending on the motion whether it is translation or rotation, actuators are classified on two main categories which are linear and rotary actuators.
