What is a stepper motor based linear actuator? How does it work? How is it sized?
These are questions that will be answered in this Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions Technical Seminar. Engineering Manager Frank Morton will explain linear actuators and how they are used to achieve precision linear motion.
In this FREE 1/2 Day Seminar:
- Basic stepper motor theory
- Components that make up a stepper motor-based linear actuator
- The selection of a linear actuator based on load, resolution, and travel requirements
Who should attend:
- 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
- Equipment OEMs that desire an integrated solution for conversion of rotary to linear motion

I learned alot form this one and then went to the Macron one http://www.macrondynamics.com and learned all about belt actuators. I’m still a bit confused which one is better.
Thanks for your question. For long stroke lengths (over 60″) belt-driven actuators are preferred. For short stroke lengths, the choice between screw driven and belt-driven stages is application specific.
