Typically when high forces are required we turn to hydraulic cylinders, valves, and power units.  But, as technology has evolved we now are able to achieve similar forces with better position and force control.  Parker’s high force actuators allow forces over 90,000 lbs without the maintenance, mess, or efficiency loss of hydraulics.

The benefits of using a high force servo actuator:

  • Cleaner without the environmental concern
  • Very high speeds
  • Easier to position
  • Efficiency > 90%
  • Conforms to standard Hydraulic or ISO cylinder mounts
  • Easier position control
  • Adapts to most fieldbus protocols
  • Complete package offers full mechanical and electrical control system
  • High service life
  • Integrated sensors
  • Easier to size using Parker’s EL-Sizing Tool (shown below)
