I need help sizing a motor for a linear electric ball screw actuator. The actuator had a meter of travel, mounted to the floor, pushing a load of 500 lb, and capable of maximum acceleration of 14.7 m/s^2. Can anyone help me size a motor for this? This is my first time sizing an actuator motor. Thanks!!!
