The task of selecting, sizing and applying linear actuators involves many variables, from stroke length and duty cycle to precision and accuracy requirements. Ultimately, matching the right actuator to the intended application requires a close look at all of the specifications involved and then working within the project’s performance, time and budget constraints. Certain manufacturing operations are more rigorous than others, with end-of-line packaging applications among the most demanding when it comes to linear actuation. Activities such as palletizing, case packing, cartoning and lane diverting require strong and reliable motion components. What does a design engineer or system integrator need to know when selecting actuators for these heavy-duty packaging operations? Here we take a detailed look at some of the most important aspects to consider.
