SKF® “drop-in” electromechanical actuators introduced for off-highway equipment applications provide easy-to-mount solutions for integration into new or existing design envelopes. These highly robust actuators ideally can perform functions traditionally controlled either hydraulically or manually.
The “plug-and-play” actuators have been engineered to promote precise and reliable movement in dozens of applications ranging from steering-wheel and seat adjustment to trailer tilting and hood lifting, among others.
Two series have been developed to satisfy medium/heavy or low-load applications. Both feature corrosion-resistant housings and durable metal gears offering the capability to withstand extreme temperature swings, vibration, shock, dust, and moisture in the field. The actuators are self-locking IP 66-rated and can operate over a wide temperature range (-40º C to 85º C).
Their use can deliver greater precision, process control, and accuracy; reduced maintenance-related downtime; diminished environmental impact with elimination of potential hydraulic fuel leaks; improved working conditions due to enhanced operator ergonomics and safety mechanisms; and increased productivity with the elimination of the need for manual operations.
This family of actuators can additionally be equipped with various options and otherwise customized for the particular application.
