Olsen Actuators & Drives have a wealth of expertise in supplying Electric Roller Screw Actuators and electro-mechanical solutions to the Mechanical Handling industry.
- Vastly improve machine life cycle,
- Increased reliability and lower maintenance
- Improved performance (speed, force and throughput)
Our actuators can be found across the Mechanical Handling industry in applications including rotating, lifting, positioning and transport equipment.
In these instances, the actuator is the device that brings about linear or rotary movement. When using legacy hydraulic or pneumatic solutions then high energy costs, complex control/programming systems and messy fluid mean an electric solution is often highly preferable.
If there is something you need to move with more reliability, for longer and with significantly reduced maintenance then simply put, we can help find a solution to move it better.
Designed and tailored in the UK but shipped globally, our actuator solutions can incorporate integrated drive electronics, require no pipes or cooling and are incredible lightweight and compact in comparison with hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Without the need for large generators and associated equipment, our actuator solutions can be fitted in a modular installation so can replace or compliment an existing installation.
Electrical actuators deliver a highly accurate level of force and can offer back-drive to offer a highly accurate level of force, speed and position control (with condition monitoring 4.0) to solve a wide range of Mechanical Handling applications. Our electrical roller screw technology is also far quieter than comparable alternatives, far more forgiving to an Engineer’s ears!
Significantly, for Mechanical Handling applications, our electrical actuators require no pipes or cooling so remove costly and messy leaks with far reduced maintenance schedules and downtime.
Our actuator solutions are able to meet specifications including:
- Milspec COTS, EAR99 750g, -40°C to +70°C
- Pressure compensation (for subsea)
- Linear Rotary 2000 kNm
- 650 bar operating pressures
- 1 kN to 1500 kN
- ATEX rated
- Travel up to 2 metres
- AC or DC voltage source
- Servo drive electronics and software integration
- Multi-axis control synchronisation
The longevity and low maintenance offered through our unique roller screw technology is particularly popular where system failure or downtime can be critical and very costly. A simple to use Windows based interface means the actuators are quick to install, commission and simple to maintain.
The efficiency benefits are also significant. Without the need for messy, leaky and corrosive hydraulic fluids, and with huge operational energy, weight and space savings available, our actuators and solutions are proving even more at home in an increasingly efficiency driven market.
Olsen Actuators & Drives are leading the way in pushing forward roller screw electro mechanical actuator systems. We are always happy to explore new applications, requirements and problems to find and develop new solutions to help drive the industry forward. If you have any questions regarding an existing project, or one in the pipeline, we would be happy help you.
