What is a voice coil actuator?

What is a voice coil actuator?
Here H2W Technologies helps us to better understand the basics of a voice coil actuator. A voice coil actuator, also known as a non-commutated DC linear actuator, is a type of direct drive linear motor.  The name ‘voice coil’ comes from one of its historically first applications: vibrating the paper cone of a loudspeaker.
