    Electric cylinders eliminate compressed air requirements in production plants

    The new AA3000 series electric cylinders from Beckhoff are ideal as direct drives for linear motion applications with high process forces and speeds. They combine advantages in force, dynamics and compactness with the benefits of servo technology, such as controlled positioning, safe holding at a standstill and high energy efficiency. Now production plants have all necessary tools to eliminate energy-intensive pneumatic cylinders and compressed air requirements entirely.
