Electric Actuators for Forestry & Lumber

EDrive Actuators Inc. offers products ideal for use in the forestry and lumber industries. Our actuators’ robust steel construction and proven patented design make them the most reliable linear actuators available today. These actuators are built to withstand the forestry industry’s demanding environments. Our powerful electric actuators provide accurate positioning at high speeds and with high force for quick response, high levels of precision, and reduced operating costs for 24/7 operations.

As a replacement for hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders, EDrive linear actuators eliminate the need for costly systems comprised of pumps, compressors, valves, manifolds, high-pressure lines, and other equipment and components. The associated high maintenance and costs from leaks, spills, hazmat charges, and system troubleshooting are also eliminated. EDrive’s electric linear actuators are both environmentally responsible and easier to maintain by design.

Customers who make the conversion experience increased production levels while saving on operational costs, energy costs, and total ownership costs. Taking all of this into account, our electric linear actuators are the ideal choice.

EDrive Electric Linear Actuator Uses in the Forestry and Lumber Industries

Electric linear actuators from EDrive can be used in a wide variety of forestry and lumber machinery, including:

  • Log clamping and debarking. Log clamping and debarking involve holding logs in place and removing the bark. Our electric linear actuators ensure precise control for these processes.
  • Edge guides and saws. Our electric linear actuators can adjust the position of saws and guides for efficient cutting operations.
  • Arbor gang systems. Arbor gang systems are used to cut logs into lumber. Electric linear actuators help in precisely adjusting the saws for more accurate, high-quality cuts.
  • Chippers and band mills. Linear actuators from EDrive can control the operation of chippers and band mills, which are used to cut logs into chips or boards.
  • Veneer peeling machines. These machines are used to peel thin layers off of logs to make veneer. Electric linear actuators can precisely control the peeling process.
  • Flying Saws. Our high-performance linear actuators can be used to control the movement of flying saws used to cut wood.
  • Presses and Pre-Presses. Electric actuators are used to generate the forces required to compress wood into plywood and other materials.
