Electric Actuators for Defense

Military and defense applications have long relied on hydraulics for mobile lifting systems, however this is changing as the industrial world moves more towards precision, high speed motion control using electric linear motion devices such as electro-mechanical linear actuators. EDrive actuators provide military solutions that offer shorter development time, longer life, maximum force, highly efficient and electric power, withstand harsh, extreme operational and environmental conditions, and reduce maintenance cycles and costs.

Military and defense applications that utilize EDrive electric linear actuators include:

  • Tank elevation adjustment
  • Weapon positioning
  • Armored plate positioning
  • Full scale training simulators
  • Aircraft elevator and landing gear

Product Features:

  • Flexible motor options
  • Sealed chamber design
  • High capacity precision ball screw
  • Rugged piston, anti-rotation feature
  • Low maintenance
  • Long life
  • Customizable
  • Cost-effective

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.
