Electric actuation offers greater flexibility, enhanced control and lower running costs for industrial automation.

Designed to reduce energy consumption and total cost of ownership, IMI Precision Engineering’s new electric actuator range has been unveiled at this year’s Hannover Messe.

Ideally suited for applications within the automotive, packaging and labelling, materials handling, machine tools and food & beverage sectors, the innovative IMI Norgren ELION increases levels of precise, repeatable control and accurate positioning for industrial users.

Flexible Benefits

Acceleration and deceleration control allows the cylinder to glide into position without stopping abruptly, making IMI Norgren ELION ideal for applications where vibrations and disruptive movement are unacceptable. This precise level of control enables multiple actuators to move in sync and change speed without need to stop or risk to overrun a position.

Based on ISO 15552, the IMI Norgren ELION electric actuator offers the built-in flexibility of multiple intermediate positions, ensuring acceleration and speed are controllable and predictable.

The absence of compressed air creates a quieter solution with significant reductions in associated energy and running costs.

One stop shop for electric actuators

IMI Precision Engineering is able to offer a complete electric actuator solution through its collaboration with market leader servo motor manufacturer Control Techniques. Customers can benefit from a single point of contact for electric actuation, alongside motors, drives and a range of accessories to suit individual applications.

Simon Gass for IMI Precision Engineering said: “As customers increasingly seek out technology answers that offer greater control, accuracy and operating flexibility, the benefits of an electric actuator solution for individual automation requirements are clear”.

“Adding IMI Norgren ELION to our actuator portfolio means our customers can have total piece of mind that whichever linear motion solution is most appropriate for their application, IMI Precision Engineering has the solution”.

The IMI Norgren ELION rod-style electric actuator range will launch in April 2019, with a rodless option available in autumn 2019.
