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.

In today’s manufacturing and production world, there are two key factors that lead to your plant’s success: production and efficiency. The linear motion systems you implement will most likely be aimed to increase both of these. The accuracy and repeatability of the actuator you use are two of the most important measures. A previous blog post, Understanding the Factors that Determine Accuracy and Repeatability in Electromechanical Actuators, outlines how the precision of the manufacturing process used to create the cylinder components affect the accuracy and repeatability of electromechanical actuators (EMAs). In this post, we’ll explore why there is more variability, which means less predictability, in the pneumatic and hydraulic counterparts.

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.
