White Papers

Screw drivetrains are the most common type of electromechanical linear actuators currently in use. Each of the three major screw drivetrain types – ball, roller, and ACME/trapezoidal – has its own advantages and disadvantages. This white paper offers a high-level overview of these three screw drivetrain technologies so that you can make sure that you’re getting the most out of your systems.

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.

    From industrial and materials handling systems to agricultural machinery and military/naval operations, many different industries and applications rely on the power of linear actuators. Since they offer unparalleled mechanical performance in moving loads in a straight line, linear actuators are literally driving these industries forward. As these applications evolve and get more advancement, so must the linear actuators that power them. That’s why design engineers are looking for superior actuators to power their systems.

    Fueled by the advancement of microprocessor technology and the miniaturization of electronics, one type of linear actuator is becoming more and more prominent: the electromechanical actuator (EMA). Contrary to the cost prohibitive actuators of the past, electromechanical actuators are now a viable and cost-effective alternative to pneumatic and hydraulic driven linear motion systems. Compared to pneumatic and hydraulic systems, electromechanical actuators offer:

    One of the main considerations when selecting an actuator for your linear motion system is cost. How deeply do you examine the associated costs, though? Should one only concern themselves with the initial price of the unit? The initial cost is important, but only one aspect of the total cost of ownership. The Total Cost of Ownership is the accumulated expected costs associated with the actuator over its service life. This post examines items such as maintenance, repair, production downtime, and more. It is necessary to consider all these to understand the true cost impact and value of a hydraulic, pneumatic, or electric actuator.
