Compared to pneumatic drives, electric drives offer a whole range of advantages:
- Robust with load fluctuations
- Jerk-free starting and stopping
- Simple speed regulation
- Control of various positions with highest repeatability
Also for cost and environmental protection reasons, electric cylinders have become indispensable in modern, sustainable production. You save energy - and at the same time contribute to a "green" image for the manufacturing companies.
Affordable, highly precise an highly rigid actuators have 1/5th the running coste of a pneumatic system.
Next-generation electric actuators, the solution for space constrained applications. Information about the design, operation and the many variants can be found on the page Miniature Cylinders.
These actuators offer protection conforming to IP54-IP67, an are a desirable solution when operated in adverse environments.
