Olsen Actuation have a wealth of expertise in supplying Electric Roller Screw Actuators and electro-mechanical solutions to the Automotive & Transport industry. Our clients have been able to vastly improve accuracy, reliability and efficiency from using our actuator solutions.

Our actuators can be found throughout the Automotive & Transport industry in fields as varied as vehicle manufacture, vehicle and materials testing and steering control systems.

In these instances, the actuator is the device that brings about linear or rotary movement. When using legacy hydraulic or pneumatic solutions then high energy costs, complex control/programming systems and messy fluid mean an electric solution is often highly preferable.

Our electrical actuators have served applications within the Automotive & Transport industry including production line robotics, welding, tyre and materials testing, pressing and forming applications, lifting platforms, vehicle simulators and a range of tooling mechanisms.

If there is something you need to move with more reliability, for longer and with significantly reduced maintenance then simply put, we can help find a solution to move it better.

Designed and tailored in the UK but shipped globally, our actuator solutions can incorporate integrated drive electronics, require no pipes or cooling and are incredible lightweight and compact in comparison with hydraulic and pneumatic systems.

Significantly for the fast paced Automotive & Transport industry our electrical systems require no pipes or cooling so remove costly and messy leaks with far reduced maintenance schedules and downtime. The plug and play nature of our solutions also makes them highly compatible with existing equipment and are far quieter making them perfect for noise testing as well as forgiving to an Engineer’s ears!

Electrical actuators deliver a highly accurate level of force and can offer back-drive to improve control resistance or further enhance test data. At home within Cyclic, Tensile or Compressive testing electrical actuators offer a highly accurate level of force and position control (with condition monitoring 4.0) to solve some of the most challenging Automotive & Transport applications.

Our actuator solutions are able to meet specifications including:

  • Milspec COTS, EAR99 750g, -40°C to +70°C
  • Pressure compensation (for subsea)
  • Linear Rotary 2000 kNm
  • 650 bar operating pressures
  • 1 kN to 1500 kN
  • ATEX rated
  • Travel up to 2 metres
  • AC or DC voltage source
  • Cables
  • Servo drive electronics and software integration
  • Multi-axis control synchronisation

The longevity and low maintenance offered through our unique roller screw technology is particularly popular where system failure or downtime can be critical and very costly. A simple to use Windows based interface means the actuators are quick to install, commission and simple to maintain.

The efficiency benefits are also significant. Without the need for messy, leaky and corrosive hydraulic fluids, and with huge operational energy, weight and space savings available, our actuators and solutions are proving even more at home in an increasingly efficiency driven market.

Olsen Actuation are leading the way in pushing forward roller screw electro mechanical control systems. We are always happy to explore new applications, requirements and restrictions to find and develop new solutions to help drive the industry forward. If you have any questions regarding an existing project, or one in the pipeline, we would be happy help you.
