To choose the proper technology, consider quantifying metrics rather than relying upon product labeling and initial perception.
An application example
The chart below represents an application requiring 1000 lbs of continuous thrust, over a 10-inch stroke, moving at 12 in/sec at 100% duty cycle. In this application, the objective is to maximize the life of a particular actuator. Given the high duty cycle of this application, this analysis will focus on electric cylinder screw options of similar pitch and packaging.
