How accurate is an actuator?
The answer to this question is more than a number. Accuracy and repeatability are two important specifications of a linear motion platform. Though they are related, accuracy and repeatability in linear motion systems are not the same thing. The motor, drive and actuator itself all influence these specifications. Sometimes, repeatability is more important than overall accuracy. The relative importance of the two depends on a thorough understanding of your application.
