We understand the complex and often unique solutions required by the testing and simulation industry. You can work closely with us or leave us with a complex problem to solve on your behalf, it is completely down to you how to utilise our expertise here at Olsen. We are happy to fit in with your way of working.
Olsen Actuation specialises in Electric Roller Screw Actuators and electro-mechanical solutions to the testing industry. Our clients have been able to vastly improve accuracy, repeatability and feedback data from using our actuator solutions.
Olsen Actuation have helped provide solutions for testing applications as varied as household furniture, material wear, mechanical components, tyre and automotive reliability. Our actuators can be found everywhere from in furniture store demonstration rigs to the aerospace industry.
The actuator in a testing rig is the device that brings about linear or rotary movement. When using hydraulic solutions, high energy costs, complex control/programming systems and messy fluid mean an electric solution is often highly preferable to legacy hydraulic fluid power systems.
Our simulation applications include state of the art flight simulators, industrial equipment simulators and a wide range of mobile platforms used in everything from medical rehabilitation equipment to the entertainment industry.
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 systems.
Electrical actuators deliver a highly accurate level of force and can offer back-drive to measure resistance in both directions to further enhance test data. At home within Cyclic, Tensile or Compressive testing electrical actuators are far quieter making them perfect for noise testing as well as forgiving to an Engineer’s ears!
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 product 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 Actuation are leading the way in pushing forward roller screw electro mechanical control systems. We are always happy to explore new applications, requirements and restrictions 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 to help you.
