Hydraulic cylinders, known for their high force at an affordable cost, have been widely used in factory automation equipment and other special automation equipment for decades. Hydraulics are rugged, relatively simple to deploy and provide a low cost per unit of force. The electric counterpart, electric rod actuator (cylinders), have become more flexible, precise and reliable with increasingly larger force capacities. In addition, electric actuators offer performance benefits, lower maintenance requirements, no contamination, higher efficiency, better motion control, quiet operation and in many cases a lower cost of ownership.
