On this page are five core applications in which Thomson electric linear actuators can deliver huge benefits over pneumatic and hydraulic mechanisms including reduced design, installation and operating cost and greater safety and productivity.
But this is just the start. Thanks to our enormous product range and proven expertise in custom solutions, you can confidently leverage all of our design skills in any mobile off-highway project. Our application engineers will help you make it happen in applications like these:
Lubricated for life like all Thomson electric linear actuators, these components give you automatic control of engine speed for responsive operation with less noise and emissions and better fuel economy.
Hood lift actuators are an elegant and dependable way to access engines for maintenance and repair. They won't weaken with age or extreme temperatures and can't leak. And they smartly adjust for tolerance problems and keep the hood locked without additional components.
Extremely easy to interface and install in new designs or retrofits, quick-attach actuators also make it safer and easier for the operator to change implements on the loader or skid steer without leaving the seat.
Electric actuators far outperform mechanical linkage for spool valve control of boom and tilt cylinders for front-end loaders and other machines, with better design flexibility, ergonomics and user control.
