Entertainment

Olsen Actuation have a wealth of expertise in supplying Electric Roller Screw Actuators and electro-mechanical solutions to the Entertainment industry. Our clients have been able to vastly improve accuracy, repeatability and control simplicity from employing our actuator solutions.

Olsen Actuation have helped provide solutions into the Entertainment sector in industries such as film, tv and theatre, theme parks, trade and exhibition shows and promotional advertising equipment. 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.

Actuators in the Entertainment industry can be found in applications as diverse as art installations, dynamic set components, animatronics, motion platforms for simulation and recreation and robotics.

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 or pneumatic systems.

Electrical actuators deliver a highly accurate level of force and can offer back-drive to offer resistance in both directions to enhance control. The complex requirements of the Entertainment industry, and the diverse environments actuators are required to operate in, mean our robust, reliable and powerful range are an increasingly popular option.

Our actuator solutions are able to meet demanding 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.
