Design of an electric actuator for electric resistance welding

• High versatility and precision for controlling welding compared to machines with pneumatic actuators. 
• Replacement of the main pneumatic cylinders and compensation cylinders with electric actuators to improve quality and prevent sheets from becoming deformed during welding.  
• Same speed and force as with pneumatic actuators, but a shorter cycle time due to versatile movement.
