Electro piston? To answer customers’ demands

At the Hannover Messe Preview I discussed with the specialists of Technische Antriebselemente GmbH. This company located in Hamburg is specialised in drive technology and linear systems. They just launched a new electro piston… let’s have a look at it.

Many companies try to replace pneumatic or hydraulic pistons by electrical ones. Technische Antriebselemente GmbH now offers them an interesting alternative.

The new electro piston benefits from a patented technology without any electric motor; the drive is carried out exclusively by magnetic field technology. Its power is potentially many times higher than with conventional coils.

A few assets

  • Constant force over the entire stroke,
  • smooth and continuous piston rod,
  • polarity change to easy change of direction,
  • integrated temperature guard,
  • designed for continuous use –high performance bearings,
  • adjustable power, current and voltage,
  • checked 100,000,000 work cycles,
  • single coils and dual coil design


  • Vibration functions,
  • sorting tasks,
  • identification of goods,
  • positioning components,
  • locking / blocking – security,
  • clamping / fixing device

The company is now developing controllers for speed control, soft brake, adjustable end positions, adjustable load and extended travel.

It’s to be discovered at Hannover Messe.
