If there's a problem with actuators, it's that they are used in so many places that it's hard to remember specifically what you might want one for. This section is intended to show you some of the many, many real-world applications you can find ActuatorZone actuators in. Here are some of the major industries and technologies that use actuators:
There are many medical applications for actuators, mostly relating to patient mobility, adjustable position beds, and giving tools to examining physicians. Many of our actuators and controls are certified for both industrial and medical use. Here are some examinations of their use:
From the movies to the shop floor, actuators have been used to mimic human movement for decades. As time has passed and technology has improved, the role of the actuator in robotics has expanded greatly for both industrial and hobby applications. Read more about it here:
Farms join factories and laboratories as industries that are increasingly adopting actuators to help automate their operations. Actuators are used everywhere a human hand used to push and pull on the farm, find out how with these articles:
Modern vehicles would be unrecognizable without the use of actuators, no matter if it's a car, boat, or plane. Flaps, doors, wipers, vents, knobs, levers, and gears all benefit from the incorporation of an actuator.
Factories, manufacturers, processors, and even hospitality are all industries that have been improved by actuators. As long as increasing productivity and safety are primary concerns these industries (and others) will continue to use and improve their processes by incorporating actuators.
The home and garage are just one of the latest areas to enjoy the benefits of using actuators. Motion in the kitchen, living room, hobby work bench, and beyond are all possible with the clever application of actuators.
