Linear motion design: Electric actuators for hydraulic replacement

May 24, 2022
Our new eBook gives you complete details on why and how to switch from hydraulic to electric motion control systems in industrial and manufacturing applications, including tips for conversion.

Hydraulic cylinders are no longer the only option for delivering high force in industrial and manufacturing applications. Over the past 30 years, electromechanical actuators have gained significantly in thrust and force. Engineers select electric actuators over hydraulic cylinders to improve motion control capabilities: better precision, flexibility and reliability. Our new eBook compares hydraulic and electric technologies and provides important tips for converting from an existing hydraulic system to an all-electric solution.
