Exlar Electromechanical Actuators for the Forestry Industry

Exlar offers reliable roller screw driven electromechanical actuators configured to meet the harsh demands of outdoor environments all over the world, including forestry applications.

Electromechanical actuators are an ideal replacement for fluid powered actuation for those OEM’s looking to improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) with advantages in these areas:

  • Reliable to eliminate failures and maintenance
  • Power dense to eliminate space needed
  • Accurate and repeatable to reduce waste and improve quality
  • Electric to eliminate the need for hydraulic pumps, reservoirs, and hoses
  • Clean to eliminate leaks and potential environmental contamination
  • IP65 ingress protection to keep dust and water from damaging internal components
  • Easy to configure/install through our process control specific software

Exlar electromechanical linear actuators transmit torque from the motor to force at the rod end using precision ground roller screws, these screws can provide advantages over other electromechanical linear technologies in these areas:

  • High rigidity - increases accuracy
  • Life - up to 15x longer than ball screws, even longer when compared to other screw technologies
  • Able to withstand high shock and vibration
  • Able to be taken apart for regreasing in the field

Related Applications

Blade Positioning - Increasing saw cut accuracy improves finished quality and reduces waste. Roller screw actuators from Exlar® offer the precision, high force, and rugged durability required for blade positioning without the mess and maintenance of a traditional hydraulic cylinder. 

Clamping - Exlar® electromechanical actuators provide precise and programmable clamping force over millions of cycles with minimal maintenance, improving the quality and structural integrity of finished parts. 

Fence Guides - High force, roller screw electric actuators from Exlar® provide the high force density and rugged durability of the hydraulic cylinders they were designed to replace, but without the mess and maintenance headaches. Their high precision improves accuracy which minimizes waste, adding to your bottom line.
