Electric linear actuator ebook: A resource

Industrial automation counts on the reliable motion control that linear actuators provide. Lately, electric linear actuators have gotten more popular because they offer better control of variables like speed, acceleration, position and force than pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders. Electric actuators also offer superior accuracy and repeatability, as well as programmable control that can handle even complex motion profiles.  In many applications, they can do all this at a lower cost of ownership than pneumatic or hydraulic actuators.

Electric high force linear actuators with roller screws rival hydraulic

When you’re specifying a high force linear actuator, your application’s requirements call the shots. It used to be that hydraulic cylinders were your only recourse when high force was needed.  Now there are electric linear actuators with roller screws that rival the high force, high thrust, high torque capabilities of hydraulics.  Plus, these electric actuators deliver high speed, great accuracy and repeatability and long life. Electric roller screw actuators are definitely an alternative to consider.
