The driving mechanism of the rod style linear actuator can be a lead screw,ball screw,or,a planetary roller screw.One of the unique advantages of rod style linear actuators is that their construction features make them suitable for challenging environmental conditions and requirements.Because the recirculating bearings(used in ball screw and roller screw designs)are fully enclosed,the housing and thrust rod can be specially coated or made of stainless steel,making the linear actuators suitable for hygienic,food grade or corrosive applications.
Rod style linear actuators position bottles for filling.
Medical applications are a diverse field for rod style linear actuators-including ergonomic positioning of tables and beds in care centers,dispensing reagents for biomedical testing in laboratories,and packaging drugs and medical devices in pharmacies.The hygienic design makes rod style linear actuators ideal for pharmaceutical applications.
In the medical field,rod style linear actuators are commonly found in devices that support or move patients,including hospital beds,stretchers,and lifts.
In mechanical and automotive applications,rod style linear actuators are used to open and close doors,guards,and hoods,and they provide easy access through built-in safety mechanisms.
Here,the rod style linear actuator operates the electronic hood mechanism on the tractor.Integrated brakes eliminate the need for auxiliary safety mechanisms.
In packaging applications,rod style linear actuators are ideal for transferring or stopping product during delivery.They are capable of providing high thrust,making them suitable for insertion applications,such as inserting products into boxes or packaging,and pressing applications,such as labelling and stamping.
In packaging machines,rod linear actuators are used to change machine parameters to suit different product types,sizes and shapes.Here,the actuator is used to adjust the stretch winding rolls,laminates,sealing units and conveyor belts.
