In the fast-paced industrial automation industry, machine design engineers build systems that meet evolving and demanding requirements. Their choices for linear motion include a wide selection of electric actuator technologies, both integrated and traditional, to help achieve designs that are reliable and efficient. Each technology offers performance advantages depending on the application type and requirements. There are several factors to consider when evaluating integrated and traditional actuators; knowing how to assess the differences and what to compare will help engineers meet their spec requirements
This new white paper from Tolomatic compares the advantages and disadvantages of rod-style pneumatic cylinders, electric actuators and integrated electric actuators in motion control applications. The white paper also compares the effectiveness of each technology in reducing purchasing, installation and operating costs—all key issues in motion control automation today.
