Linear Actuator Products for Forestry Companies

Linear Actuators in the Forestry Industry

Linear electric actuators are quickly taking the place of the bulky and high-maintenance hydraulic and pneumatic systems which have been traditionally used in sawmills. One of the main reasons for this transition is because electric actuators have power densities that are far greater than those found on competing technologies. Furthermore, electric actuation is clean, quiet, and requires almost no maintenance to keep it running smoothly.

From edging and canter saws, to log clamping and debarking, the rugged electric actuators produced here at Creative Motion Control are the perfect solution for your motion control needs.

Our powerful electric linear actuators are built from damage-resistant materials and provide precise and forceful positioning at high speeds. Similarly, our actuators can endure brutal weather environments, dusty conditions, rough handling, and overloading. Our forestry actuators are used in a variety of logging applications and are famous for their consistency and dependability.

The Role Of Electric Linear Actuators In Forestry Applications

You can find Creative Motion Control’s electric actuators in a range of forestry applications and machines.

  • Debarking and log clamping
  • Canter saws and edging saws
  • Arbor gang systems
  • Veneer peeling machines
  • Flying saws
  • Pre-presses and presses
  • Band mills and chippers

Advantages of Using Linear Electric Actuators

While pneumatic actuators require oil, our linear actuators run on electricity, making them better for the environment and much easier to maintain. Electric actuators are also safer, as they are completely sealed and don’t contain flammable liquids. Running on electricity also makes our linear actuators more efficient, which means a lower operating cost for operators.

A few more advantages of switching from pneumatic and hydraulic systems to electronic actuators are:

  • Low maintenance
  • The ability to run on green energy
  • Sealed chamber design
  • Durable components mean a long life for our actuators
  • Flexible motor options
  • Internal anti-rotation device
  • Customizable design options
  • Rugged Chrome Piston
  • Easy to program
