“Can we use actuators to produce rotational motion?”

If Linear actuators can create linear motion, wouldn’t it be logical that we could have a machine that produces rotational motion? This is the basic principle behind rotary actuators. As the name implies, rotary actuators use electric power to produce rotational motion. The motion may be continuous or discrete. Many different machines can be classified as rotary motors, such as stepper motors and servomechanisms.
