Hygienic, IP69K electric rod actuator meets food processing needs

Food processing is a tough environment for most automation equipment. There may be washdowns with high-pressure, high-temperature water. Caustic cleaning agents might be used. There also may be strict food safety standards to adhere to, like the USDA’s regulations for the meat, poultry and dairy industries. As automation components, all linear actuators, like electric rod actuators, need to stand up to the rigors of the food processing environment.

Electric linear actuators deliver precise positioning for aerospace welding

Precision is integral to the aerospace and defense industries. Even a seemingly insignificant element of a device may be mission-critical, requiring the tightest manufacturing tolerances. That’s why when a rocket manufacturer contacted us about electric linear actuators that could hold their fuselage components in place for welding, we knew precise positioning would be a requirement.

Compact, integrated linear actuator helps the show go on

Ever have an application where you had space for a pneumatic cylinder but needed the precision, programmability, and low maintenance of an electric linear actuator? You needed a compact, precise, reliable linear actuator. Does such a product exist? Of course it does! Here's a case study about an application where an integrated actuator solved this problem.

Electrical noise and linear actuators

Electrical noise is a common occurrence. Random fluctuations in electrical signals are known as noise, and if the amplitude of the fluctuations becomes high enough, the noise can interfere dramatically with the operation of industrial automation devices like linear actuators.  The results can be anything from erratic movements to complete system failure.

Something completely different – unique electric linear actuator applications

We all recognize that linear actuators are critical and much-used components in industrial automation systems.  They’re at the heart of many machine tools, conveying configurations, and packaging systems.  But what if we look beyond those industrial uses?  Here are a few unique applications our actuators have found themselves in.
