LINEAR ACTUATOR
CALCULATOR TOOLS

Dynamic Box

Dynamic Box

Finding an actuator for your operational and installation requirements can be a long and tedious process. Often it involves trial-and-error, or thorough planning and discussions before making a decision. Our engineers have created a linear actuator calculator to make this process even easier for you! We will need your max opening angle, mounting point coordinates, the height and width of your object, and the protection rating you require. We have used a dynamic box model to encompass all similar projects. By providing us with the angle for your linear actuator (the maximum opening angle between moving and stationary part of your object), alongside the other mentioned specifications, we can recommend the best actuator choice for you. Play around with this tool to find your exact match and sidetrack any time-consuming product browsing and research. From your input parameters, we will also recommend the best mounting options and controls for your actuator and application. If you’re unsure about your electric actuator angle or parameters, or still need to determine certain required parameters, it may be best to figure these specs out before using this calculator. Alternatively, our team of expert engineers will be delighted to help you out if you’re unsure!

Actuators Under a Load

Actuators Under a Load

A popular mounting position for our customer’s linear actuators is under the load it is required to push. To target these types of applications, our engineers have devised an electric actuator calculator tool that will use your input parameters to recommend the best actuator for your application. To best utilize this tool, we will need: the number of actuators you are planning to use, the maximum mass of your load, your actuator travel distance, your minimum actuator dimensions, required protecting rating, and required speed. From this information, we will use our algorithm to determine which actuator is best suited for you. It is important to be quite sure about the information you provide before deciding on an actuator using this tool. Any discrepancy could result in a change to our actuator recommendation. We will also recommend control options that may be suitable for both your actuator recommendation and application.

Actuators Pushing/Pulling

Actuators Pushing/Pulling

Mounting your actuator to perform a push/pull function from the side of your application requires separate input parameters and calculations from our other two calculator options. Therefore, we have created this third and final calculator for linear actuators. While similar to our ‘under the load’ model, this calculator takes other variables into consideration also, such as frictional losses. To determine the best linear actuator for this type of application, we will need the number of actuators you are planning on using, the required travel distance, the required protection rating, any friction coefficients that are applicable to you from our list, and the angle you are going to mount from. Following your force calculations, alongside all other required parameters, we will recommend the best actuator for your application. This calculator will be solely based off of the input parameters you provide, so it is important to have all information completely accurate. Our recommendations may change if there is any change to your provided information.
