Electro Mechanical Motion
“Is Electromechanical actuation the future?”
For many years, pneumatic rod-style cylinders have been widely used because they are cost effective and simple to apply. However electric rod-style actuators – both integrated (motion controller, drive or amplifier, motor coupling, motor mount and actuator in a combined package) – are gaining rapidly momentum in the automation marketplace for their flexibility and “sustainability,” supporting the growing trend toward Energy and Environmental compatibility.
LDA can tell you the advantages and disadvantages of pneumatic cylinders versus their Electric opponents in your motion application. We will also compare for you the effectiveness of each technology in reducing purchasing, operating and installation cost, machine footprints and number of components used, all key issues in motion control and automation today.
