Programmable Electric Actuators Rapidly Replacing LVDT

CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA - Programmable electric actuators have been increasingly favored as airless substitutes for LVDT’s and ball screws in connector pin insertion and connector pin height measurement. Unlike ball screws or LVDT’s, electric actuators have programmable positioning. They can press the pin in with the correct force, verify its position, and provide a tight fit every time. This...

Electric Cylinders with Controller can replace pneumatics.
Construction Equipment and Supplies

Electric Cylinders with Controller can replace pneumatics.

Featuring built-in controller, CBL35C Series enables direct replacement of air cylinders or ball-screw drive actuators, making it suitable for machines already in production that do not have locations allocated for separate controllers. Electric cylinders can control force, speed, and velocity profile. Since no compressed air is needed, there is no air contamination in cleanroom applications....
