Hydraulic cylinders are traditionally the go-to technology for high-force linear motion. They deliver high force at a low cost per unit of force, and they are rugged and simple to deploy. However, electric cylinders with high-force capacities are more flexible, precise and reliable. Although the advantages of converting from hydraulic to electric actuation are clear, the process of making the conversion can present several challenges.
Compare the performance and cost of each technology and learn recommended methods for converting an application from hydraulic to electric actuation.
