Electric Actuators Accelerate Sawmill Operations

Milling-Small_original Linear electric actuators provide an ideal replacement for hydraulic cylinders that are typically used for positioning in sawmills. Whether applied to canter saws or edging saws, the robust design of the GSX and FT Series actuators are built to withstand this rugged environment. Powerful electric actuators provide accurate positioning at high speed and with high force. By taking advantage of the planetary roller screw technology in Exlar® actuators, you can achieve many times the load capacity and travel life of traditional ball screws. Similarly they offer higher tolerance to shock loads and greater stiffness.


Advantages of Linear Electric Actuators

By eliminating the need for oil, our electro-mechanical actuators are both environmentally responsible and are easier to maintain. In fact, for those who make the conversion, oil leaks and the associated maintenance are a thing of the past. Additionally electric actuators are more efficient than hydraulics and pneumatics, so you save on energy costs.


Benefits of Servo Technology

Taking advantage of all-electric servo-based actuators eliminates costly hydraulic cylinder set-up, ongoing maintenance and environmental concerns. Utilizing servo technology and a completely sealed package, the GSX Series actuators from Exlar can be used in place of most hydraulic cylinders. The conversion process is typically clean and easy. Additionally cylinder style mounting options are available, as well as standard cylinder rod end attachments.
