Efficiency and Energy Savings for 12V Actuators

Electric actuators provide extremely precise control and positioning. In addition, this type of actuator helps to adapt the machine to flexible processes with low operating costs. This means that the power system is energy efficient, which can save you money in many cases.

Electric drives are the most efficient option when it comes to applications that require multiple positioning points. This is because pneumatic cylinders need to be used in combination with many accessories to perform these same types of movements. This leads to higher costs and lower accuracy and efficiency in the long run.

Another way electric varieties beat pneumatic or hydraulic actuators is their ability to start and stop commands almost instantly. No lag and lag.

Pneumatic cylinders require the compressor to run continuously to maintain pressure. Electric actuators, on the other hand, only need to run when they need work. This means electricity cost savings for your business.

This actuator is easy to use, good in quality and low in price, and it is a great shopping.


The putter is exquisite and cost-effective. It is recommended to buy.


I especially like this actuator. It is exquisite, easy to use, and has a relatively high price/performance ratio. I recommend it.

Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any question?

An actuator is a motor that converts energy into torque which then moves or controls a mechanism or a system into which it has been incorporated. It can introduce motion as well as prevent it.

Check the charging voltage and current. Generally, the constant voltage charging voltage is 2.3-2.5V/single cell, and the battery with a rated voltage of 12V is 6 single cells.

When your application requires speed, accuracy, flexibility and control, electric drives are often your best choice. Below are some of the key benefits of electric actuators. main advantage very precise control and positioning Ability to stop at any point in the journey Easy to set acceleration and deceleration No external sensors low operating cost Helping machines adapt to flexible processes Excellent performance at high speed minimal maintenance Low pollution risk
