Founded in 1980, EDrive pioneered the evolution of precision electromechanical actuators with our first patented design. Over the years our business has grown based on our philosophy of design flexibility and rapid response to our customers’ requests. While we offer “standardized” product lines we regularly customize based on specific needs.
While other actuator designs force a particular motor decision, EDrive’s linear actuators are designed to suit virtually any motor, gearbox, or gear reducers the customer chooses to use. In-line as well as parallel offset configurations are standard with 1:1 and 2:1 synchronous gearbelt ratios available.
EDrive customers enjoy an unsurpassed commitment to superior quality, integrity, and customer service. Our experienced staff provides technical support as needed to assist in specifying the most appropriate solutions. Whether you need a standard product or a fully customized actuator EDrive is your answer.
