When should you use rotary actuators?
Rotary actuators, in many cases, are a hybrid of linear and rotary actuators. Of course, in the fluid power realm, linear and rotary actuators are more affectionately referred to simply as cylinders and motors, respectively. A cylinder creates linear force when pressure acts up its piston’s surface area, while a motor creates rotational force when […]
