Linear motion, or motion that occurs along a straight line, is the most basic type of movement. Grainger carries multiple linear energy devices enabling many work functions, like pumping or hoisting. Electro mechanical actuators, which utilize an electric motor, are used for simple tasks, as well as complex applications, like robotics and optics. As machine screw actuators convert rotary motion into linear, they're ideal for screw driving, wheels and axles, and car jacks. An electric positioner is a linear motion system that maintains actuator stability and control. Let Grainger make the law of linear motion work for you.
