Miniature or Linear Actuators
A linear actuator is an actuator that creates motion in a straight line, in contrast to the circular motion of a conventional electric motor.
Linear actuators are used in machine tools and industrial machinery, in computer peripherals such as disk drives and printers, in valves and dampers, and in many other places where linear motion is required. Hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders inherently produce linear motion. Many other mechanisms are used to generate linear motion from a rotating motor.
