SKF’s “drop-in” electromechanical actuators for off-highway equipment applications are claimed to provide easy-to-mount solutions for integration into new or existing design envelopes. The actuators ideally can perform functions traditionally controlled either hydraulically or manually and have been engineered to promote precise and reliable movement in dozens of applications ranging from steering-wheel and seat adjustment to trailer tilting and hood lifting, among others.
Two series have been developed to satisfy medium/heavy or low-load applications. Both feature corrosion-resistant housings and durable metal gears offering the capability to withstand extreme temperature swings, vibration, shock, dust, and moisture in the field. The actuators are self-locking IP 66-rated and can operate over a wide temperature range (-40ºC to 85ºC). This family of actuators can additionally be equipped with various options and otherwise customized for particular applications.
