High-performance actuators

High Performance linear actuators are based on the same telescopic push/pull capability as the electric actuator. However, they are often supplied without a motor so that the motor can be chosen to best match the particular application. Servo motors are also common (a servo linear actuator), which enables external control of the movement profile, speed, torque, etc. High Performance linear actuators are available complete with motors offering forces up to 500kN. There is increasing interest in such actuators to replace hydraulic actuators, for the control and environmental advantages that they offer.

How do high-performance actuators work?

SKF CASM servo actuators

High-performance actuators comprise of a mechanical actuator and a motor/controller enabling them to offer a variety of specific movements such as stroke, speed and acceleration.

The Ewellix CASM range of high-performance actuators offer the same principal dimensions as pneumatic cylinders, allowing for easy replacement and can be supplied with a Siemens or a Dunkermotoren brushless DC motor.

Using the Ewellix programming tool, the Dunkermotoren brushless DC motor can be programmed from a PC, allowing easy set up and change.

For higher forces up to 320kN, ACORN offers the Ewellix Compact Electric actuator range. This can be used to replace hydraulic cylinders, for example.
