When Failure Is Not an Option: The Evolution of Fail-Safe Actuators Fail-safe actuators are those devices that return to a home position if the electrical power or pneumatic pressure supplied to the actuator is lost. Such actuators are often used on crucial damper and valve applications that require protection from excessive temperatures, such as preventing coils from freezing or rooms from overheating. They are required on most steam valve applications…

Terfenol-d Actuators

Standard Actuators ETREMA s standard actuators are rugged and built for industrial use. Unlike pneumatic shakers, there is no need for hose lines or air compressors to drive a Terfenol-D actuator - just electricity. Terfenol-D actuators are also solid state and, therefore, have no moving parts to fail. As long as published operating limits are followed, an actuator from ETREMA Products will last indefinitely. Standard, off-the-shelf magnetostrictive…

EDrive Linear Actuators

EDRIVE LOW PROFILE SLIDES are designed for precision metal cutting applications where space limitations or hostile environments pose a problem. The unusually low profile minimizes the moment loading, making these particularly valuable in machine tool and other highly loaded applications. These rugged units have ductile iron slides running on hardened and ground steel ways. The slides utilizes a full length gib guiding over one way to obtain a superior…
