Are you using hydraulic cylinders for your machine designs simply because “that’s the way it’s always been done”?
How often do you evaluate which actuator technology is the optimum choice for a given application?
Hydraulic cylinders and electric actuators each provide benefits. The key is knowing which solution to use based on your application’s requirements. Watch this 35-minute webinar recording. We'll discuss typical application scenarios and consider the best actuator solution for each by comparing their design requirements:
- Speed control
- Parallel drive
- Position feedback
- Force feedback
- Power on demand
- Shock dampening
- High power density
