K2 Linear Actuator
Robust electric actuators were needed by a manufacturer of remote-controlled chute openers installed on grain hauling trucks. While unloading seed, drivers typically must hurry from grain bins or air seeder tanks to get to the back of their trucks in order to manually adjust flow at the grain chute. This process can be dangerous, especially at night when injuries are more likely to occur.
The leading manufacturer of highway safety and traffic control products required reliable linear actuators for use with their vehicle mounted arrow boards. The actuator allows emergency repair crews to remotely rotate the lighted arrow board, which is typically mounted high above the vehicle cab for maximum visibility in work zones. This power-tilt feature provides enhanced crew safety in heavy traffic conditions.
