Reliable Actuation System:- The Complete Actuation Mechanism An actuator assembly is a term used to describe any complete actuator mechanism. Actuator assemblies come in different sizes. There are different types of actuators used for different applications such as electrical actuator, rotary actuator, linear actuator, actuator valve and automotive mechanical actuators. The main purpose of this product is to provide a reliable actuation system. Actuator assemblies are a number of assemblies combined together in to a small sub-assembly to provide a standard reliable system.

Typical Application Areas Some of the applications actuators are used on include:

  • Medical
  • Factory Automation
  • Food & Beverage
  • Off-Highways
  • Renewable Energy Solar
  • Pulp and Paper
  • Material Handling
Some of the Many features and Benefits of Actuators Actuators are designed to withhold the different environments they undergo. Some of the different features and benefits that they have include different motors with thermal protection, different self-locking techniques, different integrated limit switches, and different potentiometer for feedback. For the aviation industry, civil and military aircraft use actuation systems. An example of an actuator used on aircraft is a right main gear actuator. The operation of the right main gear actuator on an aircraft is to act as a double-acting, piston-type hydraulic cylinder. Once the actuator is fully extended, the pawls drop into a groove to create a positive down-lock. Pawls are a part of a machine that fall into notches and provide adjustable height locking mechanism of an extension ladder. They also provide a wide range of technology to operate a variety of doors and valves of the mechanisms of aircraft, land vehicles and marine applications. Actuators are usually found on landing gears.
