Electromechanical actuators offer a higher degree of accuracy and programmability than hydraulic and pneumatic actuators. They’re an attractive option for designers as they also reduce operating costs due to less energy needed. However, there are some key differences in selecting the proper electromechanical actuator vs. hydraulics or pneumatics.

This white paper discusses:

  • Key parameters and questions to consider for your specific needs.
  • The main types of electromechanical actuators.
  • The strengths and limitations of each type.
