Electric cylinders

Electric linear cylinders as an alternative to pneumatic/hydraulic cylinders

LZ60 electric cylinder

Short-stroke cylinders through to heavy-duty linear cylinders available

Electric cylinders are self-locking linear drives, which means that no power is supplied when at a standstill. This makes electric cylinders an interesting alternative to pneumatic and hydraulic actuators. Powerful DC motors, signal lines, potentiometers and Hall ICs for position sensing, and integrated limit switches thus respond to the most common requirements by simple means.

RK Rose+Krieger has a wide range of electric cylinders, which are divided into different performance classes. From the simple short-stroke cylinder, offering excellent value for money to the heavy-duty linear cylinder – highly dynamic, extremely precise and individually configurable. With our many years of experience as a manufacturer of electric cylinders, we offer you expert advice and a global service. The standard linear cylinders can be modified following consultation. We are also happy to develop an electric cylinder specially for your particular application – just get in touch!
