What Is A Electric Linear Actuator?

Electric linear actuators are a necessity in the production of machinery for all industries since they require no maintenance and are simple to install. The electric linear actuator, its mechanism, and the many electric actuator types, as well as their benefits, will all be cover in detail.

 How does a linear electric actuator function?

A motor, a set of gears, and a motion mechanism in the shape of a worm and tube make up the majority of an electric linear actuator, an electromechanical device. By operating the gears and worm gear, it transforms the rotational action of the motor into linear motion. It can be integrate into any machinery that lifts, lowers, pushes, pulls, positions, or orients loads.

What kinds of electric linear actuators are there?

Electric linear actuators come in a wide variety of varieties. Actuators, columns, gear motors, and other devices all have unique qualities and advantages. See the list of the various actuator types we build and modify to meet the requirements of equipment manufacturers below.

 Electric actuators arranged in parallel

The worm gear and the motor are parallel. Spur gears, which allow a larger range of gear ratios, are typically used to power parallel electric linear actuators. Although they can handle a wider variety of loads and speeds, these actuators aren’t as silent as those that use worm gearing.

 Electric actuators in the “L” or right-angle shapes

The motor is positioned parallel. towards the worm gear. Electric linear actuators with an L-shape are often driven by worm gears. Compared to spur gear motors, these actuators have fewer gear ratio options but are quieter and provide more irreversible force.

 Electric inline actuators

The worm gear and the motor are parallel. Because of this, in-line electric linear actuators have a larger retracted length. They are typically power by a system of planetary gears, and their compact size makes them ideal for confine locations. However, their noise level is louder. In-line electric actuators from the FIRGELLI Premium Series and the FIRGELLI Super duty series.

Two engines

Dual motors can run in two directions concurrently or separately. They typically use worm-wheel driven gears, which provide a quieter movement. Linear actuator with two motors

 The electric sliding actuators, number

Without the need for an outside tube, linear movement is possible with electric slide actuators. The nut, which travels with the worm gear, is connect to the front attachment. Explore the full selection of electric linear actuators we provide.

Geared engines

When used in conjunction with one or more worms, gearmotors make it possible to construct functional and affordable systems. They are a perfect option for obtaining mechanical synchronisation because they are small, often powered by gears with a worm wheel. Geared motors from the FA-delux Series from FIRGELLI

Electric columns with adjustable heights

For industrial, medicinal, and ergonomic purposes, we produce lifting columns. They provide a high level of stability while allowing the vertical movement of heavy loads. Our industrial and medical columns are made for use including adjustable-height industrial workstations, bariatric beds, and medical beds. As a result, they maintain the security and comfort of every user.

We also provide a selection of BIFMA-compliant ergonomic columns for offices with various heights. This selection comes in a variety of hues, shapes, and orientations, and it has a 2- or 3-tier design.

 Electric standing desk frames

Desks and worktops may be adjusted in height using our electric frames. They enable the design of sit-stand, straight, parallel, angled, or 120° desks and are available in a variety of shapes and colors. They come with quick and simple assembly because they come in pre-assembled kits. The electric frames are the best option for ergonomic desks at work and at home because of their quiet, smooth movement.
