RA-38 In-line Actuator Series for NORCRANES lifting equipment
REGNER® linear electric actuators are the clearest choice to replace manual operations, gas springs, and hydraulic actuators. The main advantages that REGNER® electric actuators offer against those systems are:
- Greater movement and positioning precision
- Greater reliability and duration
- High power density, which makes equipment more compact
- Battery-powered machines, which are more efficient
- Easier and faster assembly, since there is no need for hydraulic groups
- Safer and cleaner environment due to the elimination of hydraulic fluid leaks
- Maintenance-free devices owing to its plug-and-ply actuator solution
- Smaller size with the same load capacity
RA38 In-line Actuators are easy to mount and operate, require no maintenance, don’t leak hydraulic fluid and once installed they will work dependably year after year
The RA-38 actuator series has proven field reliability, and ongoing development has opened a wide variety of application possibilities for lifting systems.
They are gasketed and totally sealed off for protection against liquids, dust and foreign particles as well as lubricants or grease, making them an ideal solution for equipment used outdoors. As an added value, the RA In-line Actuator Series is finished in anodized aluminum which is corrosion resistant.
The RA38 In-line Actuator Series, ready for industrial environments
Replacing hydraulic cylinders with electrical linear actuators means a simpler and smaller installation, easier control, lower energy costs, higher accuracy, less maintenance, less noise and a cleaner, healthier environment.
The RA38 In-line Actuator Series offers advantages over mechanical and hydraulic systems in many applications. They are self-contained, sturdy, and durable, making them ideal for any application in which you want to lift, lower, push, pull, rotate or position a load. These in-line actuators possess the following features:
- Compact design: RA38 in-line actuators adapt and can be used in confined areas.
- Reliable and sturdy: the RA38 In-line Actuator Series incorporates strong and high-quality components to assure hassle-free service. It presents a sturdy design, helical gearing, quality lubricant, and a high performing motor allowing for maximum life and value. They are gasketed and sealed throughout for protection against liquids, dust and foreign particles as well as lubricants or grease, so they are ideal for use in outdoor equipment. To resist corrosion, they are finished in anodized aluminum.
- Maintenance-free: all adjustments and lubrication are made at the factory and no maintenance is required or recommended. Consistent, repeatable performance is provided during the entire lifetime of the actuator.
- Safe operation: RA38 in-line actuators incorporate thermal switches to shut the actuator off in case of overheating.
