    Benefits of Electric Linear Motion Systems over Hydraulic Systems

    • Control, Feedback & Data Collection: An actuator’s servo motor/drive system provides precise measurement and control of position, speed, acceleration, and force (torque). This information is available on a continuous basis for tracking and auditing purposes.
    • Life and Maintenance: Properly sized and applied electric actuators have a long service life and require minimal maintenance.
    • Safety: Light curtain, 2 hand control, guarding configurations available.
    • Environmental Concerns: Electric actuators do not contain fluids and therefore do not pose the contamination hazard of hydraulic systems. In addition, temperature fluctuations have less impact on electric actuators.

    Webinar On Demand:
    “Tired of hydraulic grime & scrap? There’s a better way”

    Electromechanical actuators can provide superior performance over hydraulic cylinders in many applications – through improved precision, flexibility and reliability. This webinar covers:

    • Considerations for making a change from hydraulics
    • Benefits of electric linear motion systems
    • Total cost of ownership
    • Important tips for converting from an existing hydraulic system to an all-electric solution

    Customer Stories

    Bottom line: What do customers have to say about working with us? Check it out…

    Tube-bending machines make parts
    for objects we take for granted every day.

    Tube-Bending Machine

    The servo controlled RSX actuator allowed the OEM
    to create quick and easy changeover procedures
    to accommodate any wheel size.

    Wheel Bearing Press

    Although the hydraulic cylinders could achieve
    the forces required for the application,
    they could not deliver the force repeatability and accuracy
    to achieve a high level of part quality.

    Powertrain Assembly

    With a precise servo controlled electric actuator system,
    the OEM was able to completely eliminate defective parts
    from the pressing operation.

    Air Bag Production

    The hydraulic system was not very efficient
    and cost thousands each year to operate.
