Altec Integrated Solutions believe that the introduction of their Servo Electric Roller Screw Actuators heralds a new era in the mechanical and electronic control of Veneer Green End Lines, Plywood Lay Up Lines and a multitude of ancillary equipment applications. This provides an environmentally cleaner, more efficient option for the future development of the industry.
Not only are Electric actuators much more efficient than hydraulic and pneumatic systems they introduce a lot more stiffness and subsequently control. By introducing the actuators into new applications or replacing existing pneumatic and hydraulic actuation substantial power savings can be realised.Green End
Traditional ball screw carriage drives and complicated bar gap systems are extremely maintenance intensive. With the introduction of independent roller screw actuators and the removal of the traditional mechanical apparatus the new systems are greatly simplified, wear points are eliminated, maintenance is reduced and peel quality is improved.
We now have some 10 - 12 Electric Actuator Lathe systems in the field. These vary from the full Carriage, Bar Gap and Knife Pitch package to just Carriage Actuator Package. Combined with our Lathe Controls it is the state of the art solution
