In the world of linear actuators, hydraulics traditionally held the king-of-the-hill on force, while electromechanical actuators were faster and more accurate. However, electric actuators are gaining ground on the force front. For example, a new electric actuator from Curtiss-Wright can deliver up to 40 short tons of force at 13.8 inches per second.
Curtiss-Wright’s Sensors & Controls Division has recently released a new Exlar brand electric actuator, the FTP215. This high-force elec…
