The advantages of upgrading actuators
A high level of productivity is one of the key factors in modern industrial production. Organizations strive to develop new technologies to optimize production and reduce energy consumption. At the same time, prominent industrial companies require improved ergonomics for employees to reduce absences due to illness or injury. Intelligent solutions using electric actuators will solve both of these problems using:
- Switching to a low-maintenance low-power fast linear actuator technology
- The use of intelligent actuator systems tested for resistance to harsh environmental conditions
- Conveniently install custom solutions with improved ergonomics
Where to Use High-Speed Electric Actuators?
Whether you deal with the automation of soldering furnaces, packaging, welding or textile machines, bar feeders, conveyor belt systems or material processing devices, electric linear actuators can help improve the production quality and speed up the whole process. Progressive Automations’ actuator solutions, in particular, allow their owners to adjust the height, accurately load weights or create quick modifications to fit various dimensions – all these solutions improve ergonomics for employees while reducing costs.
Energy Cost-Effective Technology Not requiring Maintenance
Unlike other linear motion systems, PA solutions do not use hoses, pumps or compressors. As a result, not only the risk of oil or gasoline leaks is eliminated, but also the need for maintenance. Moreover, the downtime is also reduced and the life of the average actuator is significantly extended. At the same time, the backup power consumption of PA actuators is close to zero, making them the most economical solution at the global automation market.
Long-Term Intelligent Actual Solution
Fast linear actuators for industrial purposes undergo rigorous testing before being spread around the world. They are designed to work in extremely harsh conditions and can tolerate washing without the risk of damage to complex electronic filling. This all thanks to the IP54 protection class according to the International Protection Rating. This is important not only to prevent long-term outages but also to ensure the employees’ safety.
Simple Installation and Improved Ergonomics
The high-speed electric actuators are easy to install since they only require a power cord and a data cable that connects the device to industrial equipment. PA solutions can be adapted for installation on almost any machine or automatic vehicle and can be easily integrated with almost any existing control system. As a result, ergonomics is also significantly improved.
Eco-Friendly Solutions Tolerant for Environment
With a strong focus on eco-friendly linear motion automation solutions and the desire for greater profitability prompted manufacturers to switch to electrical systems. Even large machines now run on electricity, and there is a need for interconnected parts of applications that integrate with the entire production line. The use of electric actuators gives the original equipment manufacturers several significant advantages, such as:
- All-in-one electric linear actuators that are easy to install;
- Long-lasting, maintenance solution;
- Cost-effective, low-power installation.
At modern production facilities, equipment is becoming more automated. This requires a higher degree of control to coordinate processes and reduce downtime to a minimum. Intelligent systems are used to allow control systems to control and automatically configure machines accordingly. In bar feeders, electric actuators with integrated controllers (ICs) help insert rods into the machine, as well as adjust it to the optimum height. The electric linear motion automation using the high-speed linear actuators became the way to replace a large number of employees with a reliable technology that won’t ever disappoint. Linear motion automation using products of Progressive Automations is the perfect way to invest in the new age technological approach in order to keep pace with the future. Investing in this kind of automation business holders and entrepreneurs obtain not only the method of automation of certain linear motion processes but find the way how to develop their business effectively avoiding so common labor problems associated with hiring employees. Think progressive and use high-speed linear actuators now.
