Beck provides a complementary service called Link-Assist to support the setup and installation of our linkage connected actuator products. Link-Assist is an exclusive linkage program that provides Beck Engineers the ability to design an optimal linkage configuration based on your application specific constraints. Beck can supply you with the recommended linkage length, crank/lever arm start angles, and crank/lever arm radii. This information is available in a date-stamped comprehensive report that also provides the delivered torque and force profiles throughout travel.
