Robust and reliable electric linear actuation

Robust and reliable electric linear actuation An electric linear actuator is a device that converts the rotational motion of a low voltage DC motor into linear motion - that is push and pull movements. This way it is possible to lift, adjust, tilt, push or pull heavy or hard to reach objects simply by pushing a button.

Electric linear actuators are the perfect solution when you need simple, safe and clean movement with accurate and smooth motion control. These actuator systems are perfect for adjustments, tilting, pushing, pulling and lifting with thrusts up to 10,000N. Actuators can be integrated into sophisticated control systems using data bus communication. This delivers benefits of precise position feedback and accurate variable control over acceleration and velocity.

Compared to both hydraulic and pneumatic systems an actuator solution is a lot easier to install. It takes up less space as there are no hoses and pumps that require routine maintenance to avoid safety hazards and messy oil leaks.

An electric linear actuator has a long lifetime with little or no maintenance at all. This ensures a very low total operating cost compared to other systems. Electric actuator systems are quiet, clean, non-toxic and energy efficient. They fulfill the ever increasing demands and legislation concerning environmentally sound equipment.

LINAK linear actuators are built to last. The first TECHLINE solutions were installed in heavy agricultural and construction machinery in 1980. A continuous stream of improvements and innovations has since established the TECHLINE name in a great variety of very different applications in the industrial sector. TECHLINE solutions improve the functionality of numerous diverse applications, ranging from food production machinery, over wind turbines and solar trackers, to heavy construction and agricultural machinery such as wheel loaders and combine harvesters.

LINAK offers a full range of linear actuators, with specific lines aimed at medical, office, domestic, industrial and power grid applications. Easy to install and maintenance-free, whilst being more environmentally friendly than hydraulic or pneumatic alternatives, these advanced electric actuators provide safe, quiet and reliable movement, with options of high IP protection levels and medical approvals. Alongside these ranges of linear actuators, LINAK also offers a range of lifting columns and dual actuators. Linak lifting columns consist of linear actuators integrated into columns that are designed for raising and lowering applications.

LINAK has recently launched a new range of iFLEX electric linear actuators that incorporates an internal controller. Instead of connecting a classic actuator to some kind of control system by wires and relays, iFLEX offers actuator solutions with integrated intelligent communication. iFLEX solutions are more cost-effective compared to traditional actuator solutions. This is due to the simple fact that no additional cable installation and alignment is necessary.
