What is causing more and more designers to switch from pneumatic to electromechanical actuation?
When it comes to linear actuators, machine designers have a handful of options at their disposal. However, as a recent technical article details, electromechanical actuators have been seeing a continuous increase in usage due in part to their speed, precision and size.
Whether for factory automation, material handling or other applications, these electric rod-style actuators are being converted from pneumatic alternatives, resulting in:
• Improved machine performance.
• Reduced equipment size.
• Increased energy conservation.
• Less maintenance and total cost of ownership.
The article goes on to explore the factors in selecting the ideal electromechanical actuator for your application. Learn more, read the complete article on the Thomson website.
