In recent years, factory automation equipment has experienced an increase in the use of electric rod style actuators, while fewer hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders are being employed. Numerous factors are driving this conversion but most significant is the growing need for improved energy efficiency, reliability and controllability, and reduced maintenance. Watch this 30-minute expert talk, and you'll learn:
- Why electric actuators are the best alternative for machinery requiring sophisticated motion control.
- How to avoid parasitic energy losses in factory automation applications.
- How to evenly distribute or share a load with synchronization. How to easily enable complex, multi-axis motion.
