White Paper: Why Electromechanical Actuators are Increasingly Replacing Hydraulic Actuators


Hydraulic actuation has traditionally provided much of the muscle for the industrial revolution, but that functionality has come with a cost. Hydraulic systems are complicated and messy, labor and space-consuming, and expensive to operate and maintain. For many years, these systems have been the only option for several applications. Today, however, advanced electromechanical linear actuators offer a high-volume, high-strength solution that is simpler, cleaner and more controllable than its hydraulic counterparts. If you typically specify hydraulic actuators for your machine designs, check out this white paper for a handful of good reasons to consider electromechanical alternatives.
