Choosing stepper- or servo-driven
How to choose stepper or servo-driven electric actuators to replace air cylinders Electric linear actuators present several advantages over pneumatics: Reduced downtime and reduced energy consumption, along with increased precision and speed. Further, the motor typeservo or stepper--is a major consideration when designing an electric linear motion system. Their selection depends on requirements for speed, torque and repeatability. Learn the advantages of electric linear actuators over pneumatic cylinders and the factors that influence the selection between stepper- or servo-powered electric actuators.

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.
