Electric actuators are more cost-effective than their hydraulic and pneumatic counterparts. Electric actuators benefit from cleaner, simpler, and more energy-efficient power transmission. Electric actuator integration is easier with programmable controls, and maintenance is minimized with no parts replacement or lubrication needed except in extreme conditions.
Industrial Linear Actuators are electric actuator products that operate in typical open loop applications powered by 12, 24, 36, 48 VDC or 115, 230, 400 VAC. A linear actuator is excellent for agricultural, construction, mining and industrial equipment to control seats, hoods, doors, covers, throttles and many other devices. Our linear actuators are ideal for medical, health and fitness, office and entertainment, and marine equipment.
Making the change from pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders to electric actuators
Precision Linear Actuators
Precision linear actuators are designed to deliver high performance in applications requiring continuous duty operation. They provide the highest thrust and speed of any electric actuator and allow you to design more compact machinery with maximum throughput. Often chosen as a clean and efficient alternative to fluid power solutions, precision linear actuators draw energy only on demand and operate more quietly than pneumatics. To suit your specific application, Thomson offers the longest stroke lengths in the industry, a simple and reliable RediMount system to mount your own motor, and product customization options.
