Precision linear actuators – free webinar

12 February 2015

Thomson Industries Incvisit website


Thomson Industries, Inc. is presenting a new webinar that will provide engineers with information to improve machine design. The webinar will be based around the Thomson PC-Series electric linear actuators. These units are considered to be one of the most promising approaches on the market right now because they have a greater power density in a smaller package and provide up to four times more travel time than other typical electromechanical alternatives; giving machine builders the ability to create more compact designs, improve reliability and extend travel life.

The PC-Series actuators are optimised to help designers convert from pneumatic to electric linear actuation. The units have efficiencies of over 80 per cent compared with a typical 10–15 per cent for pneumatic equivalents. They also require less maintenance, simplify machine design, offer significant cost savings and are suitable for 100 per cent duty cycle applications that require high accuracy and reliability.

This free webinar will be held on 25 February 2015 and is aimed at giving a detailed technical insight of the PC-Series to design engineers. It will be hosted by Niklas Sjöström, Product Line Manager for Systems in EMEA and Asia at Thomson, who will give a step-by-step guide in how to correctly size and select precision linear actuators.
