Mobile Equipment

Olsen Actuation have a wealth of expertise in supplying Electric Roller Screw Actuators and electro-mechanical solutions to the Mobile Equipment industry. We have helped our clients to vastly improve precision control, reliability and space/weight savings from using our actuator solutions.

Our actuators can be found in markets including the Marine, Agriculture, Turf Handling, Military, Construction and Mining, Transportation and Material Handling.

In these instances, the actuator is the device that brings about linear or rotary movement. For many years, hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders were seen as the only solution by mobile machine manufacturers. Electro mechanical systems have been significantly improved to match the baseline performance of equivalent legacy systems and exceed them in areas such as energy costs, complexity of control/programming systems and eliminating messy fluid leaks, meaning an electric solution is often highly preferable.

Within the Mobile Equipment sector our electrical actuators can be found in applications as diverse as steering mechanisms, positioning, lifts, braking, remote control, active suspension and manipulators.

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. Without the need for large generators and associated equipment, our actuator solutions can be implemented modularly, so can replace or compliment an existing installation.

Electrical actuators deliver a highly accurate level of force and position control (with condition monitoring 4.0) to solve some of the most challenging mobile equipment applications. The complex requirements and the diverse environments actuators are required to operate in mean our robust, reliable and powerful range are an increasingly popular option. Not to mention they are also far quieter and forgiving to an Engineer’s ears!

Of particular significance to Mobile Equipment applications, our electrical systems require no pipes or cooling so remove costly and messy leaks with far reduced maintenance schedules and downtime. The associated equipment with legacy systems is also negated meaning far more compact and lightweight solutions can be devised for mobile applications where these attributes are at a premium.

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 problems 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.
