A new design for SIPOS Aktorik’s electric actuators will be launched in December 2014. The development, which is the most significant announcement for the company since the launch of the SIPOS 5 in 1999, features a number of advancements that will benefit valve control applications.
SIPOS, which is renowned for its pioneering actuation innovations including variable speed technology to address water hammer, reveals that three years of R&D and intensive tests have been invested in the evolution in electric actuation.
Leading experts in the field of actuation have contributed to the advancement including Matthias Rebhan, whose track record includes work as an R&D engineer with Siemens and who gained a doctorate in Electrical Engineering in 1987. Giving an insight into the announcement, Dr. Rebhan, General Manager of SIPOS Aktorik said:
“We have used the brightest brains in the actuation industry, talked to our customers around the world and listened to our suppliers to evolve our devices. Full details will be revealed in December, but we can assure all parties involved in valve actuation, including operators and end-users; contractors and valve companies plus designers and specifiers that this marks a new era in actuation.”
