When it comes to linear actuators, pneumatic and hydraulic systems are popular choices among machine designers. However, for applications that demand high positioning control, as well as good speed and repeatability, electric actuators are particularly attractive alternatives. They’re also safer and cleaner — with no need for air compressors, power packs or fluids that can leak. Thanks to these and many other benefits, electric actuators are exceptionally versatile.
For example, automationware’s Mech Series of programmable E-actuators provide accurate, controllable movement using sphere recirculation screw technology and electronic driving systems with encoders. These actuators satisfy a wide range of dynamic loads and speed requirements found in smart, automated factories and are appropriate for industries like:
Mech Series actuators come in three versions, depending on your speed, force and size requirements: Mech Value small electric cylinders, Mech Force and Mech Plus for high dynamic load handling. In addition, you can monitor temperature and vibration conditions using AwareVu technology.
Although electric actuators like the Mech Series are relatively new compared to pneumatic and hydraulic actuator technologies, their long list of benefits — including precise, repeatable control and programmability — makes them desirable for smart, automated machines and processes across many industries.
