Exlar® Electric Actuators
Due to inherent benefits in terms of ease of installation, higher performance and flexibility, lower maintenance, and increased energy efficiency, electric actuation is increasingly the technology of choice over the more traditional fluid power solutions, both hydraulic (oil) and pneumatic (air). Plug-and-play compatibility, high dynamic response and accuracy, programmable motion profiles, and efficiency of better than 90% versus 70 to 80% for hydraulics and 50 to 60% for pneumatics are just a few of the compelling reasons why more and more machine builders are switching to electric.

Benefits of Migrating from Hydraulic Cylinders to Electric Actuation
Electric actuator solutions with roller screw technology and industry leading flexibility in stroke length, rod end, and case options, as well as motor and mounting alternatives.
Integrated servo motor and roller screw actuator solutions with feedback, connectors, and wiring configured to almost any brand of position controller for a true “plug and play” risk-free experience.
Exlar® Roller Screw Actuators
In addition to the benefits provided by switching from fluid power to electric, Exlar® Roller Screw Actuators from Curtiss-Wright deliver very high force in a very small package, and provide up to 15X the life of competitive electric actuators. Designed from the beginning as a superior electric replacement for hydraulics, Exlar roller screw actuators offer the power density and rugged reliability of a hydraulic cylinder combined with the performance, flexibility, and efficiency of an electric actuator.
