A rotary actuator is an actuator that produces torque in a rotary motion. A rotary actuator is essentially a motor that produces torque by spinning. Other types of actuators may be powered pneumatically, hydraulically or by using the energy that’s stored in a spring. The most common actuators are stepper motors, these motors produce a continuous rotation at a controlled speed. Another commonly used actuator is a servo motor. A servo motor is a package of several components like a motor, a gear train, and a position encoder. These types of actuators are commonly used in small electronics.
Rotary actuators can be differentiating in a lot of ways, such as axial capacity, cantilever mount, cylinder size, drive torque, weight and so on. You can use the filters on our website to find the best rotary actuator for your situation. Our rotary actuators can be used for examples like garbage trucks and aerial platforms.
