Actuators are simple devices capable of producing short-stroke motions that are in either directional or non-directional movements. Marine linear actuators produce motion in a straight line used for applications that require positioning and lifting. With the inclined plane’s principle where the thread of the lead screw acts as a continuous ramp to allow the rotational force, movement is enabled in the same directions, which enable movement and adjustment used for lifting different objects on the boat that enable space creation.
Lifting and positioning of tables
By short-stroke motions produced by the actuator, simple movements that include lifting and positioning of tables are enabled by remote and buttons. This means a table and seat can be moved from one place to the other if required and enables a place to be created for other purposes. Adjusting tables to different heights enables the same table used for different purposes: dining or working, saving space that many tables would use.
Automation by linear actuators in yacht kitchen
In luxury kitchens, linear actuators are fitted in kitchen cabinets and spice racks. The lifting force produced by the actuator helps to enable emerging racks that emerge on request. This space is used to perform other functions when the spice rack is not required and enables the storage of many utensils in a limited space.
Lifting TVs and working monitors
It is another important application enabled by linear actuators on boats to create a place. It creates a motion that enables using a remote to lift flat TVs when required and lower them to use that space when not required. This enables the availability of more space for other applications.
