11/24/2014 | Pneumatic to Electric Actuator Conversion Made Simple – Free Webinar for Design Engineers

In competitive marketplaces superior performance from optimized machine designs can make a huge difference. Based on the new Thomson PC-Series electric linear actuators, Thomson Product Line Manager, Niklas Sjöström, will explain how easy it is to convert machines from pneumatic to electric operation along with the technical and commercial benefits that can be achieved.

24.11.14 WOLFSCHLUGEN, GERMANY – Thomson Industries Inc. is a leading manufacturer of mechanical motion control solutions. Its new PC-Series Electric Linear Actuators offer breakthrough performance and efficiency advantages over pneumatic cylinders. This free, live webinar will explain the tangible benefits and answer the questions design engineers may have when considering switching to electric actuation in their machine designs.

The PC-Series actuators have efficiencies of over 80% compared with a typical 10-15% for pneumatic equivalents. They require less maintenance, simplify machine design, offer significant through-life cost savings and are ideal for 100% duty cycle applications that require high accuracy and reliability. The webinar will discuss how easily the change from pneumatic to electric actuation in machine design can be achieved. It will also show how the smaller footprint, longer stroke length and increased power density of the range compared with alternate technologies give designers more freedom to optimize machine designs and increase functionality.

Niklas Sjöström, Thomson Product Line Manager, will host the webinar. He will cover the simplicity of pneumatic to electric conversion and the benefits of the PC-Series range. Niklas will also discuss the wide range of applications and also offer support with product selection/sizing.

The Pneumatic to Electric Conversion Made Simple webinar will be held on November 26, 2014. More details and how to dial in can be found at:
