Third Class Lever Calculator
Enter your specific requirements and find an actuator which has enough force to lift your load. For our Second Class Lever, make sure your LI distance is greater than your LE distance. If your application has a greater LE than LI, check out our Second Class Lever Calculator.
LE Distance (Inches)
LI Distance (Inches)
Load Weight (Lb's)
In this example the Actuator is doing the pulling movement. If the actuator is placed under the lever then it will be doing the pushing where the force requirements are exactly the same. For more information on third class lever's, check out our blog post on them here.
