Food & Packaging

Olsen Actuation have a wealth of expertise in supplying Electric Roller Screw Actuators and electro-mechanical solutions to the Food & Packaging industry. Our clients have been able to vastly improve reliability, accuracy and remove messy leaking machinery from sterile environments.

Olsen Actuation have helped provide solutions for food & packing applications such as food tray filling, ingredient measuring and dispensing, pressing and forming applications, sealing and labelling. The actuator in a food or packaging machine is the device that brings about linear or rotary movement. In the Food & Packaging Industry we understand actuators need to be fast responding, precise and low maintenance to replace legacy hydraulic or pneumatic fluid power systems.

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 for ease of install and simplicity of use. The accuracy delivered by our electric actuator solutions has the capability to significantly increase efficiency and reduce wastage in fluid transfer or solid food distribution. Perhaps most significantly our electrical systems require no pipes or cooling so remove costly leaking and contaminant incidents with far reduced maintenance schedules and downtime. The plug and play nature of our solutions also makes them highly compatible with existing equipment.

Electrical actuators deliver a highly accurate level of force and can offer back-drive to measure resistance in both directions to further enhance control. At home with delicate and accurate pressing, sealing, cutting and positioning our electrical actuators are far quieter making them perfect for noise testing as well as forgiving to an Engineer’s ears!

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 product 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.
