Seaway Powell Marine, one of the leading British engineering companies specialising in the design and manufacture of marine hydraulic systems, has announced the successful build of its first V Series actuator at its manufacturing facility in Dorset, UK. Chris Oswald, Managing Director at Seaway Powell, says: “We are delighted to be able to build the V Series actuator here, as it enables the company to reduce cost and lead time for our UK customers. The V Series is the most flexible and durable ram-style actuator in our standard product portfolio and we are very proud of it. This build marks a significant milestone for the company and we look forward to increasing the volumes of V Series actuators built in the UK.” Originally designed and built in the USA by Seaway Powell Marine’s sister companies, PT-USA and American Actuators, the V Series actuator is a rugged, flexible, low-maintenance actuator platform for linear motion control. Ideally suited as a clean and efficient hydraulic cylinder replacement, the V Series actuator is an electro-mechanical ram-style actuator that is a low maintenance alternative to fluid power cylinders. This style of actuators excel when there is a high concentration of airborne contaminants, when moving a load that pivots or when applying force to an already externally supported load. The V Series actuators can be either retro-fitted or installed as part of a new mechanical system. When combined with modern servo motors and controls, electro-mechanical actuation provides nearly infinite programmability, reduced set-up times and improved control of speed, acceleration, deceleration, force and position. The V Series actuators can be seen at the Drives and Controls exhibition, stand D162, 8-10 April 2014 at the NEC in Birmingham.
