White Papers

In linear motion systems, the ability to control for accuracy and repeatability can have a drastic effect on productivity, efficiency, and downtime. This white paper examines the factors that determine the accuracy and repeatability of a linear actuator, as well as how electromechanical actuators are able to better mitigate these variables than pneumatic and hydraulic variants.

Electromechanical actuators are an attractive option for designers looking to move loads at high speed and with a high degree of accuracy. This white paper helps you understand the information you need to know to choose the right actuator for your system.

    Companies in the food & beverage industry that employ ram-style electromechanical actuators (EMAs) in their processing and packaging systems are held to different standards when it comes to the construction materials and protection levels of their EMAs. The Food & Drug Administration requires all equipment used in these environments to be designed to keep any possible contaminants from contacting the products. In addition, the equipment must also undergo regular rigorous cleanings and be designed such that no areas on the unit can collect particulate matter or water from the environment. Stringent cleaning requirements and the potential for corrosive ingredients in the cleaning processes in the food & beverage industry can be very harsh on general-purpose actuators that do not use corrosion resistant materials.

    “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” – Benjamin Franklin

    Ensuring your electromechanical actuators (EMAs) provide a long service life starts with specifying thoughtfully designed products constructed of quality materials. But that’s far from the whole story. Although Ben Franklin was writing about the importance of fire safety back in 1735, his words continue to remind us that no one―in any industry―can afford to neglect basic preventive maintenance.
