Electric Actuators | Linear Actuators
Beginning with the control of accessory drives on garden tractors and farm equipment and broadening to encompass applications ranging simple remote control to complex precision control systems, our linear actuator experience spans more than four decades.
Why electric actuation? Electric actuators are more cost-effective than their hydraulic and pneumatic counterparts. Electric actuators benefit from cleaner, simpler, and more energy-efficient power transmission. Electric actuator integration is easier with programmable controls, and maintenance is minimized with no parts replacement or lubrication needed except in extreme conditions.
Industrial Linear Actuators are electric actuator products that operate in typical open loop applications powered by 12, 24, 36 VDC or 115, 230, 400 VAC. A linear actuator is excellent for agricultural, construction, mining and industrial equipment to control seats, hoods, doors, covers, throttles and many other devices. Our linear actuators are ideal for medical, health and fitness, office and entertainment, and marine equipment.
- Our Electrak Series of linear actuators uses a push-rod design that can range up to 914 mm (36 in) in length with dynamic load force capabilities up to 6800 N (1500 lbf). Screw types include ball, acme, and worm with clevis or trunnion mounting.
- Lifting Columns linear actuators are vertical, self-supporting lifting units used primarily in medical and office environments such as dental chairs, adjustable computer tables, wheelchairs, and fitness equipment.
- Rodless linear actuator slides come in vertical or horizontal units incorporating a T-slot design for side, carriage-type applications including medical and office equipment where lifting side loads is required.
Precision Linear Actuators are electric actuators cylinders operating in AC closed loop systems with drive control. Our ECT Series of linear actuators is specifically designed for high-precision, push-rod applications where positioning accuracy, high speed and high force capacities are a must. The electric actuator motor options include 3-phase AC servo and 3-phase induction with parallel belt, parallel gear, or direct drive inline mounting.
