Industries & Applications
We understand the need in military systems for rugged performance. Exlar Corporation's linear actuators and brushless servo motors provide the maximum force capabilities in the smallest packages commercially available. Tim McGee, Exlar Defense Market Business Development Manager, discusses Exlar actuator technology at the 2011 Military Vehicles Exhibition and conference.
Serving as an industry recognized hydraulic replacement, we manufacture linear and rotary actuators for military and commercial entities designed to fulfill a wide array of motion applications.
Utilizing roller screw technology and integrated brushless servo motors, Exlar offers compact, clean, fast and accurate control over a wide range of force, speed, and sophistication of control.With continuous force ratings up to and exceeding 20,000 pounds and linear speeds exceeding 33 inches per second, Exlar actuators are built for robust market requirements.
Exlar's experience in military and aerospace applications is increasing rapidly. Meeting the industry's growing desire for electrically powered systems, Exlar compact actuators and motors are specified on weapons systems for vehicles in the Future Combat System, part of the design for the Navy's Advanced Gun System, and used for valve control on Navy ship systems.
Additionally, Exlar has worked with FAA Designated Engineering Representatives (DERs) to attain Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) certification, paving the way for full FAA certification for a customer’s integrated system. Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) is a combined design and production approval for modification and replacement parts. It allows a manufacturer to produce and sell these parts for installation on certified products.
