Electric rod actuators add accuracy and repeatability to PCB manufacturing

Some manufacturing processes require high precision -- printed circuit boards (PCB) production, for example.  In these instances, the capabilities of each component in a production system are critical. Although machine designers know pneumatic cylinders well, these cylinders struggle to deliver the accuracy and repeatability demanded by high precision processes. Many design engineers now turn to electric rod actuators for accuracy and repeatability and for better operating efficiency.

10 tips for specifying electric rod actuators: Part 2

(…continued)

In many applications electric rod actuators are a great solution.  Compared to pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders, electric linear actuators offer more control over application parameters like position, velocity, and force. They deliver high degrees of accuracy and repeatability and can handle complex motion profiles.  All things considered, an electric rod actuator is often the superior actuation choice.

Supporting STEM education

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (together known as STEM) impart valuable life skills.  STEM subjects teach students how to gather and evaluate evidence, make sense of information, and use new insights and knowledge to find solutions to complex problems.

How to select electric linear actuators that stand the test of time

The length of time a linear actuator will function (i.e., service life) is critically important to a machine designer. Machines need to keep working reliably with little or no need for lengthy maintenance that will take a machine off-line . So, components like actuators must keep working.
