Roller Screw Actuators vs. Hydraulics - How About a Better Solution?

Do these challenges sound familiar?

  • We need to eliminate hydraulics from our machines and from the production floor.
  • Will ball screw / roller screw actuators hold up in our demanding applications?
  • How do we deal with “shock loads” and provide reliable equipment that requires minimal maintenance?
  • Energy conservation and “Going Green” have become much more important, how do we design in energy-efficient solutions for our customers?

Good news… new actuation technology is available that address these challenges and combine the benefits of both hydraulic cylinders and electro-mechanical actuators while eliminating their shortcomings.

What is an Electro-Hydraulic Actuator?

Kyntronics SMART Hydraulic Actuators (SHA)

Kyntronics SMART Hydraulic Actuators Offer

  • A compact design with high force density to fit your available space.
  • Only uses Power on Demand – the highest energy-efficient actuator available
  • The All-In-One system eliminates the HPU and Hydraulic Components - no hoses – no leaks – no mess
  • Reliable and Durable – no metal-to-metal wear as found in ball screw and roller screw actuators… withstands “shock loads” that damage EMAs.
  • A completely sealed and closed system – only minimal maintenance required.
  • Very cost effective vs. hydraulic cylinders and EMAs.

Imagine the awesome power of hydraulics in a clean, energy efficient, and maintenance-free package. Sound too good to be true? With the patented Kyntronics electro-hydraulic actuator, you benefit from a compact, programmable, high-thrust actuator with precise control of position, force and speed and drastically improved reliability.

This All-In-One solution eliminates leaky hoses and valves, failure-prone connections, noisy and inefficient HPUs and other hydraulic components from your machines without sacrificing reliability.
