Introduction to Linear Actuators
(May 5, 2010)
Hilton Garden Inn Dorval Aeroport, St. Laurent, Quebec, Canada. Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada. This Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions "Lunch N' Learn" seminar is hosted by Electromate. Engineering manager Frank Morton will explain linear actuators, and how they are used to achieve precision linear motion. The free, half-day seminar will cover basic stepper motor theory, components that make up a stepper motor-based linear actuator and the selection of a linear actuator based on load, resolution and travel requirements. The seminar is designed for electrical, mechanical and electromechanical design/application engineers who are in the process of designing a motion application or would like a better understanding of linear actuators, as well as equipment OEMs that desire an integrated solution for conversion of rotary to linear motion.
