Company Information

E•DRIVE actuators are designed, manufactured, tested, and serviced in West Hartford, CT.

Founded in 1980, E•DRIVE Actuators, Inc. initially developed a wide variety of heavy duty ball screw linear actuators, targeting the machine tool retrofit market. Thus, we established our guiding principles of conservative design, rugged construction, long life, and high precision.

Over the years our business has grown based on our philosophy of design flexibility and rapid response to our customers' needs. As the machine tool market declined, our unique steel construction and long life have attracted new markets, namely factory automation, and more specifically the replacement for hydraulic and pneumatic linear actuators. Our business has continued to grow as the demands for improved control over linear motion have increased.

We have "standardized" our product lines to facilitate national distribution; however, we willingly modify these designs in the interest of easing the customers' utilization of our products. We focus on understanding the application, recommending the optimum solution, and making it easier for the customer to mechanically and electrically interface with their existing equipment.

Since its' inception, E•DRIVE customers have enjoyed an unsurpassed commitment to superior quality, integrity, and customer service. We now offer a standard five year warranty, showing our trust and belief in our superior designs and construction.

We continue to expand the capabilities of our products; our most recent addition is the HDL™ offering an internal load cell for precise control of force as well as position and motion. Our experienced staff will provide as much technical support as needed to assist in specifying the most appropriate design and recommending modifications where necessary.

After market service remains our highest priority. We routinely perform emergency repairs within one day and often can perform a complete, warranted as new, rebuild within the same timeframe. If we do not have the ball screw in stock, a typical rebuild is 4-5 days.
