What are Linear Actuators?

Linear Actuator Sales

Linear actuators use linear force to turn rotational motion into linear motion — motion in a straight line. Linear actuators are used in a wide variety of machines and equipment. Common automation tasks for linear actuators include sorting, filling, conveying and more. Linear actuators can be reprogrammed to handle your applications today and into the future.

About Us

Located in Zeeland, Michigan, Midwest Automation Supply is a leading provider of linear guide rails and linear actuators. A couple of things that set us apart is our ability to quickly cut your rails to any length (FREE of charge), and the ability to add dowel holes in the rail, carriage or both!

Our central location in Michigan gives us the ability to efficiently ship our products across the United States. 


It isn’t always easy to identify the proper linear motion system for your application. Using the acronym LOSTPED, we can address factors that should be considered when choosing and sizing a linear motion system. What is LOSTPED? Load, Orientation, Speed, Travel, Precision, Environment and Duty Cycle. Taking these factors into account will result in a better automation outcome. Need help? We can help you achieve the outcome you’re looking for
