Because our electromechanical cylinders are intended as an alternative to hydraulic cylinders we want to point out an important difference in order to avoid problems and failures. Our cylinders must NOT be driven against fixed or uncontrolled stops, as these units generate significantly higher forces in such a situation than the nominal forces given in this catalogue. If more precise positioning is required we recommend that the unit is driven by an inverter to be able to adjust and lower the speed to avoid uncontrolled extention. Electromechanical cylinders as a whole cannot tolerate transverse forces. For information on installation and maintenance, see the operating instructions below.
