Stroke frequency

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In drive technology, the stroke frequency is the number of strokes in relation to the duration of the count. The numerator of this frequency shows the number of strokes as a dimensionless, mechanical variable, and the denominator shows the time required for this. In some cases, the stroke frequency is also expressed as the number of double strokes per period .

The desired stroke frequency is an important parameter for the design of a linear guide or a linear drive , as this has a considerable influence on the service life of linear technical applications. If the length of a stroke and the stroke frequency are known, the distance that is covered in a given time can be calculated.

Depending on the application, stroke frequencies of a few strokes per hour or day (example: bathtub lifter ) but also of a few hundred or thousand strokes per second or minute (example: high-frequency linear drives in medical technology laboratories) are possible.

Lifting frequency is also used for pumps , presses , lifting platforms and other technical applications.
