What is Solenoid Valve & How it Work (A Step-By-Step Guide)

What is Solenoid Valve & How it Work

What is a solenoid valve?   A solenoid valve is a type of electromechanical device used to control the flow of fluids such as air, water, gas, steam, or other liquids. It consists of a coil of wire (solenoid) wound around a metal core, which generates a magnetic field when an electric current passes through… Continue reading What is Solenoid Valve & How it Work (A Step-By-Step Guide)

How to Speed Up Linear Actuator: Step-By-Step Guide

How to speed up linear actuator

What is a high-speed linear actuator? High-speed up linear actuators are like super-fast movers in a straight line. They’re designed to zip back and forth quickly, faster than regular ones. These actuators use special motors and lightweight materials to speed up & move fast while still being accurate and reliable. They’re used in things like robots and… Continue reading How to Speed Up Linear Actuator: Step-By-Step Guide

What is a Rotary Actuator and How Does it Work?

Rotary Actuator

Rotary actuators are powered by electricity, fluid pressure, or even manually. They are used in a variety of applications, including valve operation, mobile hydraulic equipment, aircraft, and motion control systems.   In a fluid power system, rotary actuators act as output devices, delivering an oscillating motion within a limited range. They generate work through the… Continue reading What is a Rotary Actuator and How Does it Work?

How to Mount a Linear Actuator?

Linear actuators are the invisible heroes of the industrial world, tirelessly driving automation across countless applications. But even the most robust actuator is rendered useless without a secure and stable mount.   At Maxim Systems, we understand the critical role mounting plays in maximizing performance and longevity. This comprehensive guide delves into everything you need… Continue reading How to Mount a Linear Actuator?

How To Calculate Linear Actuator Position

Linear Actuator Position Calculations

To precisely control a linear actuator‘s movement, calculating its position is key. This involves three crucial pieces of information: the actuator’s total travel distance (length), its starting point, and the desired final position. With these values in hand, a simple formula unlocks the secret: Position = (Final Position – Starting Position) / Length of Actuator.… Continue reading How To Calculate Linear Actuator Position

What is a Linear Actuator and How It Works?

Imagine a nut on a screw. When you turn the screw (rotary motion), the nut moves up and down in a straight line (linear motion). Linear actuators use electric motors or hydraulics/pneumatics to spin a threaded rod or lead screw, which pushes or pulls an object in a precise straight line. They are widely used… Continue reading What is a Linear Actuator and How It Works?
