Often the ideal design solution is not about finding the fastest, sturdiest, most accurate or even the least expensive option. Rather, the ideal solution is the optimal balance of performance, life and cost...
Electric Linear Actuators are designed to handle loads axially. One of the common failures of Linear Actuators is side-loading - a force perpendicular to the axis of rotation. The longer the stroke, the more susceptible the actuator is to binding or a bent screw...
Electric Linear Actuators are often subjected to very nasty environments. Whether it is dust, dirt, sand, or water, you need to have confidence that it will hold up to the intended environment. The IEC published their standard 60529, also known as the international protection code or IP code...
The Thomson WhisperTrak actuators can be ordered with a digital feedback option that allows for synchronization of two or four units. In order to accomplish this, you will need a Thomson control and WhisperTrak with digital feedback options - this is a quaduature signal...
Grain bins, auger carts and seed tenders have many hydraulic and manual operations that can benefit from simple, clean and maintenance free electric actuators.See the difference between hydraulics and electric actuators for the folding of the auger, pivoting of the spout, and opening of hatches.
Al Wroblaski, Thomson Linear Actuator Product Line Manager, demonstrates the advantages of Industrial Linear Actuators over hydraulic systems. He discusses issues such as contamination, temperature, safety, economy, maintenance, integration and system size. Also included is a demonstration of application data acquisition techniques and their use in optimizing customer applications.
Thomson engineers show customers our products in action. From shafting and supports, to round and square rail guides, to linear motion systems and slide tables, to ball and lead screws, to linear bearings and pillow blocks, Thomson demonstrates how our products excel as the best solution in a wide array of industrial applications.
