IP Ratings and The Manufacturing Environment: How to apply Linear Actuators for Quality, Safety and Longer Service Life
Dusty and wet environments can negatively affect the performance and durability of motion control components in processing and packaging applications. Various ingress protection methods are used to protect actuators in these environments, and the IP code rating standardizes how much protection enclosures can provide against dry solids and moisture. But how do these code ratings apply to rod-type and rodless linear actuators, and which ratings are appropriate for specific applications? Tolomatics new white paper is a helpful study for design engineers faced with these questions.
Select the Right Linear Actuator: Making Sense of Manufacturer Specifications
In the world of electromechanical linear actuators, a product that has the "highest" output rating, whether it is loads, moments, or thrust can be a distinct competitive advantage. When selecting the proper actuator for an application, the product that has the "highest" rating is often determined to be the superior, robust choice. However, how long the actuator performs is what really counts. How do you compare manufacturer's published specification ratings so you can make a meaningful comparison? It's all about life and load. This paper will give concrete examples that compare specifications and explain how to interpret the results.
