Why Electromechanical Actuators are Increasingly Replacing Hydraulic Actuators

Advanced electromechanical linear actuators offer a high-volume, high-strength solution which is simpler and easier to control than their hydraulic counterparts.

Hydraulic actuation is capable of providing a large amount of power. However, hydraulic systems can be complicated and messy, labor- and space-consuming, and expensive to operate and maintain. 

Advanced electromechanical linear actuators offer an alternative to traditional hydraulic actuators by providing a high-volume, high-strength solution which is cleaner, simpler and more controllable.
