Micro-site showcases electric linear actuator information

13 December 2012

Thomson Industries Incvisit website


Thomson is introducing - a new micro-site that provides substantive educational information detailing how electric linear actuators provide superior performance and significantly simplified operation at a lower cost of operation compared with conventional hydraulic options in Mobile Off-Highway (MOH) applications such as construction, road maintenance, farming, forestry, turf and railway vehicles.

Thomson has drawn on its extensive market knowledge to compile this new resource, that details throttle control, quick attach, hood lift, spool valve control and broom control applications where electric linear actuators can deliver significant benefits. Visitors will also find ready access to detailed information on all relevant Thomson electric linear actuator products.

HÃ¥kan Persson, Product Manager Linear Actuators Europe, says: “This dedicated site is a resource for OEM engineers to learn more about how to leverage the benefits of superior performing, lower profile and more durable electric linear actuators to build a differentiated mobile off highway machine that will improve their and their customers’ bottom line.

“Electric linear actuators eliminate many of the safety risks inherent in hydraulic systems, as well as the fluids and cables required of those systems. Electric actuators offer fewer parts to maintain or replace, higher life cycles and more efficient use of power at all times. They also provide superior heat, vibration and moisture resistance, with better interfacing, speed and feedback options, to further optimise performance.”

The electric linear actuator microsite is currently available in English, Chinese and German, and can be found at
