Linear actuator 05/29/16
“Is it possible to use a mechanical device to convert energy into linear motion?”
Like all machines that do not violate the laws of physics, the answer is yes. The name for this machine is called a linear actuator. Linear actuators converts energy into mechanical linear motion. All linear actuators require some form of energy to operate, weather it be pressure (such as in internal combustion engines) or electricity (such as in mechanical linear actuators). Linear actuators have applications to every form of life, weather it be in the automotive industry or in mechatronic cleaning supplies.
