Advancing Tunnel Operations: the advances of our electric actuators

ProMation Engineering is delighted to share the exceptional capabilities of our electric actuators which are specifically tailored to meet the demanding requirements of tunnel applications. Our commitment to innovation and efficiency positions our electric actuators as the optimal choice when compared to traditional pneumatic or hydraulic actuators, ensuring enhanced speed, reliability, and safety in tunnel applications.

  1. Cost Savings and Reduced Maintenance: The long-term cost savings of our electric actuators are particularly relevant to the tunnel market applications. With fewer moving parts, these actuators require less maintenance, resulting in decreased downtime and operational costs. Their rugged design ensures reliable performance over time, reducing the total cost of ownership for tunnel projects.
  2. Energy Efficiency: Tunnel projects demand energy efficient solutions, and our electric actuators rise to the occasion. With the ability to consume power only when required, they outperform pneumatic systems that continuously use compressed air and hydraulic systems with constant fluid circulation. This not only translates to lower energy costs but also aligns with sustainability goals in tunnel construction.
  3. Compact Design and Easy Integration: The compact design of our electric actuators is tailored to address space constraints often encountered in tunnel installations. Unlike hydraulic systems with intricate arrangements, our electric actuators can be seamlessly integrated, providing simplicity and flexibility in tunnel infrastructure.
  4. Adaptability to Modern Tunnel Automation: In the age of advanced tunnel automation, our electric actuators are designed to seamlessly integrate with modern systems. Their compatibility with smart industrial networks, easy connectivity, and real-time monitoring capabilities makes them an ideal choice for tunnels embracing Industry 4.0 practices.
  5. Enhanced Safety and Reliability: Safety is top priority in tunnel operations. Our electric actuators are equipped with advance safety features, eliminating the use of potentially hazardous fluids present in hydraulic systems and reducing the reliance on compressed air in pneumatic systems. Our actuators were successfully tested to operate for 2 hours at 400 degrees Celsius and cycle tested at a minimum of 100,000 cycles. They are engineered for special control wiring requirements for custom and site-specific operation. This contributes to a safer working environment within tunnels.
