Electric linear actuator selection tips: Consider the environment

When you’re faced with electric linear actuator selection, one of the early considerations has to be the industrial environment in which it will operate. Will there be dust? How much dust and what kind? Will there be moisture? Direct spray? High temperatures and pressures? Corrosive substances?

These factors affect the performance of an electric linear actuator and may point to the best type for an application.

Better welds with electric linear actuators for resistance welding robots

U.S. and European car manufacturers have long been convinced of the benefits of automation in their production facilities. Spot welding robots are common in their body production lines.

Automation and robotics offer advantages in cost savings and quality, but plants in India, China, and Southeast Asia have been slow to get on the bandwagon. Perhaps some plant managers see these production processes as too expensive or difficult to implement. Whatever the reason, that situation may be changing according to a Frost & Sullivan study described in an article on The

About the pneumatic linear actuator

Who doesn’t love a classic? There are classic clothes - like t-shirts and pull-over sweaters. Classic building designs - like Greek Revival and Victorian. Even classic cars. Whether it’s a building, a car or a pair of jeans, there’s nothing like the time-tested design and reliability of a classic.

When it comes to industrial automation, the pneumatic linear actuator or pneumatic air cylinder is a leading example of time-tested reliability. Since 1955, we've been developing and manufacturing these dependable workhorses for industry
