Cost Reduction in Linear Movements

Replacement of Pneumatic Cylinders with Electric Linear Actuators

Machine builders are moving to electric actuation for a number of reasons:

  • If more than two positions are needed
  • Synchronisation is required
  • The dynamics or the lifetimes of pneumatic cylinders are not good enough

Due to the high costs involved in the operation of pneumatic products, the use of electro-mechanical actuators also becomes more reasonable in simple point-to-point applications with two end positions only. This is mainly the case when the duty cycles are always the same and pneumatic cylinders must be large-sized due to high speed and load requirements.
