Electromechanical Actuators Improve Factory Operation

At the core of every Exlar actuator is our superior roller screw design. Configured to meet the specific demands of each industry served, our electric actuators drive successful automation in many applications and manufacturing environments.

Exlar's precision ground roller screws can provide advantages over other linear actuator technologies in these areas:

  • Safe and environmental alternative to fluid power
  • Increased throughput
  • Increased part quality
  • Servo control precision and flexibility
  • High load ratings and longer life
  • Space savings (much less infrastructure than hydraulics)
  • Reduced service and maintenance
  • Increased energy savings (90% efficient versus 50% for hydraulics)
  • Quieter operation

Industries

Material Handling - Exlar provides reliable and energy efficient automation for material handling applications including conveyor lines, pick-and-place machines, and sorting functions. Flexible in design to include integrated motors and compact programable solutions, our electromechanical actuators give you high-force accuracy with precision repeatability

Medical - Medical devices require extreme accuracy. Electric linear actuators deliver the necessary precision motion control for clean room and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Our value-added configurations enable production efficiencies for your state-of-the-art medical equipment. Additionally, compact designs and a quieter system allows for enhance ergonomics and comfortable environments.

Metal Working - Electromechanical actuators provide significant benefits over other technologies as it is a more robust and stiffer system to combat deflection. Precision control and accurate positioning enable machinists to repeatedly meet tolerances on parts resulting end-product quality improvement.

General Industrial and Pressing - Exlar offers a “true” electric-mechanical alternative to hydraulic cylinders, eliminating hydraulic fluid leaks and the use of oil in general. Exlar’s roller screw technology enables longer life, higher shock load tolerances and higher load capacity compared to competitive products. Flexible configurations offer a myriad industrial solution for OEM customization.
