Actuator Academy™ - industrial actuators

Are you curious about linear electric actuators for industrial machinery, and would you like to look inside and learn the principles of the technology behind? Then you have come to the right place.

Here at the Actuator Academy™ you can dig into some of the main components of a linear actuator, such as the motor, spindles, gears, clutches, brakes, or the housing. You can expand your knowledge on how all the components work and interact to form high-quality actuators for industrial use.

Learn how these components directly affect the performance and efficiency of an actuator and get tips on how to best utilise your linear motion actuator, and what to avoid.

We would like to share with you what you should expect from a good industrial actuator. Through a library of videos and illustrations, we hope to inspire you and, in the end, make you wiser on the moving electric revolution we are all part of.

Feel free to ask questions along the way – Happy exploring!
