This webinar will provide an overview of electromechanical actuators, with a particular emphasis on sizing and designing linear actuator into custom applications. Included in this discussion will be an examination of relevant factors such as size constraints, motion profiles, duty cycles and loads. Using various example applications, viewers will gain an understanding of the mechanics that allow actuator systems to function effectively.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Mechanics of an electromechanical actuator
  • How to size an actuator, including…
    • Size constraints
    • Duty cycle
    • Motion profile
    • Load
    • Environment
    • Life requirement
    • Resolution/repeatability/accuracy
    • Online sizing tools (Bearinx by Schaeffler)
    • Application examples
