Thomson Industries is introducing www.thomsonlinear.com/moh – a new microsite that provides educational information detailing how electric linear actuators simplify and improve machine design in mobile off-highway (MOH) applications and provide superior performance compared to hydraulic and pneumatic alternatives.
Thomson has drawn on its market knowledge to compile this new resource. Currently available in English, Chinese and German, it details how electromechanical systems offer significantly lower operating cost, reduced design, installation and greater safety and productivity in MOH applications such as construction, road maintenance, farming, forestry, turf and railway vehicles.
The online resource provides significant details on nine representative off-highway vehicle applications that include throttle control, quick attach, hood lift, spool valve control, hatch open, auger fold, spout pivot, ladder lift and broom control applications, where electric linear actuators can deliver significant benefits. Visitors will also find detailed information on all relevant Thomson electric linear actuator products.
Håkan Persson, Global Product Line Manager Industrial Linear Actuators, 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. It can help them differentiate their mobile off-highway machine and 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 for 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.
