Extreme force electric linear actuator controls lumber drying

The lumber processing industry demands rugged, strong, reliable and accurate equipment in all its operations. Machine designers who serve this industry need extreme force linear actuators to move heavy loads.  Hydraulic cylinders have been the go-to, but they have limitations, such as poor control, leaks, temperature sensitivity, maintenance requirements and lack of feedback. Now there are electric rod actuators powered by roller screws that can meet the requirements of these high force applications.

High force linear actuators: How to convert from hydraulics to electric

For high force linear actuator applications, machine designers often first look to hydraulic cylinders. For good reason, too – hydraulic cylinders can be a bargain to purchase, delivering high force at a low cost per unit of force.  Plus, they’re rugged and well understood. But there’s another technology to consider. Electric linear actuators are available with high force capacities.  These actuators are more flexible, precise and reliable than their hydraulic counterparts.

Electric high speed linear actuator reduces conveyor’s TCO

Higher production speeds usually translate into higher output volumes – a good thing in manufacturing. At least it’s good if product quality stays high and operating costs remain in line.  Machine designers are on the look-out for high speed linear actuators and other devices that can streamline processes.  But those high-speed solutions need to be reasonably priced and efficient to use.
