Automotive Linear Actuator Manufacturers in the US
Modern vehicles feature a wide variety of automotive linear actuators that allow them to open and close windows, vents, and sliding doors. This mechanical element is also an essential part of engine control and other crucial parts that are necessary for a vehicle to run properly. In order to get the best results, automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) need to find a product that is sturdy, reliable, and that doesn’t require maintenance.
At Creative Motion Control (CMC) we specialize in producing high-quality linear actuators for the automotive industry. Our team of specialized engineers and technicians focus on developing quality actuators that can be used throughout cars, trucks, RVs, and other ground vehicles. If you want to learn more about our product or our manufacturing capacities, contact us today and we’ll be glad to help.
Linear Actuators in the Automotive Industry
Automobile manufacturing is taxing work that requires the most reliable and strongest tools on the market in order to run at peak proficiency. At CMC, we serve the automotive industry by producing high force electric actuators that can be used in a wide variety of applications.
Not only are our electric linear actuators safer than competing technologies (like pneumatic and hydraulic systems), they are stronger, more durable, and last for many years longer than other actuator styles.
CMC’s electric actuators also require minimal maintenance in order to run and are an energy-efficient solution for automotive companies hoping to convert their processes to clean energy.
Boring & Honing
High force density and precision are crucial in a boring and honing actuator application. Our high force electric actuators supply these and more, offering a number of advantages over competing technologies. Some of the benefits of our linear actuators include higher system stiffness, precise velocity control, and lower energy consumption (meaning a lower operating cost).
As an increasing number of automotive companies make the switch to clean, electric actuators, robotic weld guns are the application being most frequently converted from fluid and air power to electromechanical. In contrast to older technologies, our robotic welding actuators are lighter, more compact, don’t require water cooling, have reduced expulsion, and produce stronger welds.
Clamps and Pivots
CMC’s electric linear actuators are a long-lasting solution that requires almost no maintenance in order to run at peak proficiency. Our actuators are easily programmable, quiet, are easy to operate, and have a low operating cost due to their small energy consumption.
Assembly and trim presses are critical to the automotive industry. These large and powerful machines work with a wide range of materials and require repeatable and precise actuators in order to run correctly. Creative Motion Control’s electromechanical actuators are the propulsion solution your company needs. Our systems are highly precise, both in velocity and position control. They are also extremely repeatable and can be easily programmed and operated.
Fastening & Joining
High force actuators are required for proper fastening and joining. Our powerful actuators offer accurate force monitoring to ensure that your clenching, piercing, and riveting is done right every time. In contrast to bulky hydraulic and pneumatic systems, our electric actuators are smaller, quieter, are easier to program, and have a lower operating cost.
Benefits of High-Quality Linear Actuators
Like any other industry, vehicle manufacturers that opt for the best product will generally see better results in terms of quality and performance. Our linear actuators are made of high-quality materials and are carefully crafted and tested to ensure their performance exceeds our clients’ expectations.
Additionally, some of the benefits of working with a reliable actuator manufacturer include, but are not limited to:
No Maintenance Required
Due to their location and overall design, maintaining linear actuators after their installation can be challenging at best. OEMs and car customization companies that opt for low-quality actuators will likely experience issues when it’s time to provide maintenance.
Quality actuators, on the other hand, are internally lubricated and don’t require any maintenance after installation. At CMC, we design actuators that don’t require additional fluid or lubricant application, which improves performance and longevity. And, this also means less expenses for OEM’s and final consumers.
Easy to Install
Whether looking for custom or standard actuators, OEMs that find quality parts will have an easier time during the installation and assembly processes. Unreliable actuators tend to be bigger in size and are not always easy to implement, especially in custom automotive projects.
Our linear actuators are designed to be compact, resistant, and easy to install, so OEMs will have a product that’s easy to implement regardless of the vehicle being manufactured.
Durable and Long-Lasting
One of the most important characteristics of any quality car part is durability and how well that particular piece performs after a long time. Linear actuators that are made with low-quality parts or obsolete designs don’t perform well after a long time, so this type of product won’t provide the best results.
Our product design has developed different actuator models for the automotive industry, all of which are designed to perform well even decades after being installed.
Various Gear Ratios
The ideal gear ratio of each actuator is determined by its purpose. Linear motion systems can be used as part of the engine, gearbox, and other essential components, which means that they need to have specific gear ratios in order to perform well.
Quality actuators come with different great ratios, including 5:1 all the way up to 40:1 and above for larger vehicles.
While quality is of the utmost importance, having a reliable supply chain that delivers orders on a timely manner will directly affect the performance of an automotive manufacturer. That’s the reason why we provide fast deliveries in the US and abroad.
