Linear Actuators from the Hytec Group of Companies, also called electromechancial cylinders, are available in two variations – the standard linear actuator – EMC (electromechanical cyclinder) and the heavy duty linear actuator – EMC HD (electromechanical cylinder – heavy duty). Each of these are stocked, installed and servicedby Tectra Automation, a Hytec Group Company.
The EMC linear actuators have similar external geometry and mode of operation as pneumatic cylinders. However, this basic linear actuator can offer much higher energy efficiency, versatility and controllability due to modern servo controllers.
The EMC HD linear actuators are designed as a completely modular system with an integrated planetary or recirculating ball screw assembly. This design allows the heavy duty linear actuator to enable cost-efficient work under tough or difficult conditions.

The mechanics of the linear actuators are based on established planetary or ball screw assemblies, available in various sizes and leads. Linear actuators from Hytec Group are powerful alternatives to pneumatic cylinders, and provide significant benefits in terms of energy efficiency.
They also have greater flexibility, which is achieved through higher thrust and variable speeds. Our range is well suited for typical motion applications, including handling tasks.
Some examples of applications that use of heavy duty linear actuators include:
A few examples of applications in which our linear actuators can be used include, but are not limited to:
High rigidity of the heavy duty linear actuators allows for precise positioning as well as high performance and dynamics. Users are able to integrate the linear actuators into intelligent energy management, seamlessly. This reduces power consumption and carbon emissions.
Machine designers who work on highly accurate systems must incorporate precise electronic systems. However, they also need to give the mechanical components equal consideration. Component sizing, linear guide and bearing design, ball screw and nut options, as well as linear module housing material are all critical factors to consider in order to provide the best accuracy possible.
Standard linear actuators and heavy duty linear actuators from the Hytec Group encompass all these factors, making them the electromechanical cylinders of choice.
Heavy duty linear actuators from the Hytec Group provide higher dynamics and precision, increased controllability and better mechanical efficiency than most fluid-power drives like hydraulic cylinders, for example.
Because of linear actuators’ special characteristics when compared to fluid-driven technology, it is important that the requirements of the application be completely defined in advance. To find the most cost-efficient linear actuator for your application, you should be knowledgeable in the following parameters
Linear actuators are the perfect technological platform for building both mass-production and special purpose machinery.
