Grain Truck Chute Opener

Warner Linear K2 Linear Actuators for Grain Truck Chute Opener

Robust electric actuators were needed by a manufacturer of remote-controlled chute openers installed on grain hauling trucks. While unloading seed, drivers typically must hurry from grain bins or air seeder tanks to get to the back of their trucks in order to manually adjust flow at the grain chute. This process can be dangerous, especially at night when injuries are more likely to occur.

Wind Turbine

Electric linear actuators offer a performance solution for wind turbine systems

As wind turbine designers look to get more and more from their systems, key areas of focus are improving efficiency and simplifying maintenance. Seen from a distance, the seemingly slow spin of a wind turbine’s rotor is almost hypnotic, belying the sophistication of the control systems needed to maintain the ideal speed in varying wind conditions, to lock down the rotor when maintenance is needed, and to improve the ergonomics for maintenance and service personnel.
