Eco-Friendly Electronic Linear Actuators Increase Efficiency

The drive to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions has intensified worldwide. There is significant focus on increasing the amount of green energy sources while minimizing CO₂ emissions from existing energy sources. With locations in oceans, deserts, and arctic environments, these systems must be highly durable while performing with reliable precision. 


  • Durability and Resistance to Difficult Environments
  • Low Noise and Low Weight
  • Sensing and Control Accessories to Monitor Performance
  • No pumps or compressors (No Spills or Leakage)
  • Compact Design
  • Low Maintenance (Increased Throughput)
  • Low Power Requirements (Due to efficiency)
  • Easy installation

Solar Energy

Solar power plants require accurate positioning to ensure that sunlight is directed precisely towards their target devices.

Nook linear actuators and screw jacks offer affordable, custom-fitted solutions for high performance solar tracking including accurate positioning, rugged long life, and the ability to withstand harsh environmental conditions. 

All Nook actuators and screw jacks can be equipped with a holding brake that eliminates back-driving with high levels of force (both crucial to effective high wind operation). Actuators and screw jacks require little to no maintenance, making them ideal for solar panel applications.

Improved Efficiency for Solar Plants.

Dependable Operation in Extreme Weather.

Wind Energy

Nook linear motion systems are ideally suited to meet the challenge.

Mechanical actuators and screw jacks are superior to hydraulic alternatives. They do not require pumps, pipes, valves and plumbing while being relatively maintenance free. Accurate positioning is easy with the utilization of limit switches. Screw jacks are ideal for heavy service hoods and are available with braking capability (for high wind parking). 

As the demand for wind energy continues to increase, the resulting large scale wind power plants will require intense focus on safety and durability as a primary objective to protect their associates. This is particularly true in the case of offshore turbines, where materials have to cope with salt, water, and tremendous loads. 

Water Energy

Valve and Flow Control. Nook actuators when used in conjunction with valve systems can maintain reliable flows while increasing efficiency of production and treatment facilities such as wastewater, paper pulp, or food processing. These heavy load valves require increased reliability and automation. 

Mechanical actuators and screw jacks are superior to hydraulic alternatives. They do not require pumps, pipes, valves and plumbing while being relatively maintenance free. This makes them perfect for water flow applications that require reliable and clean running technology.

Durable and Eco-Friendly

  • Shock and Vibration Resistant
  • Resistant to Extreme Environmental Conditions (Heat, Cold, Dirt)
  • Reliable Performance and Long Service Life
  • Improvement Over Hydraulics (No hoses/pumps/compressors).

Screw Jacks and Environmental Applications

A screw jack application operating condition is defined by two criteria. The first is the environment and the second is the temperature.  The environment describes the area where the screw jack application is located. The temperature describes the ambient temperature in which the screw jack will be performing....
