Q&A: Why are electric linear actuators trending on the factory floor?
03 November 2022
For design engineers, choosing the best actuator solution for linear motion projects is not as simple as it once was. Today’s applications require smarter, cleaner and more flexible technologies to integrate with their automated workflow. Whereas fluid power has previously been the solution of choice, more and more designers are finding that electric linear actuators bring more benefits to the table.
From control functionality and networking capabilities to load handling and environmental considerations, electric linear actuators have become the “smart” choice for countless applications.
In this exclusive interview with Håkan Persson, Global Product Line Director – Linear Actuators at Thomson Industries, Inc., we take a deeper dive into electric actuators to explore how these new levels of intelligence, efficiency and safety are being achieved.
