Applications involving water, and especially salt water, pose an immense challenge to the equipment being used. Phoenix Mecano's drive solutions master these challenges while delivering outstanding reliability to users. Our robust linear actuators feature stable construction and high IP protection. Thus, they are perfectly suited for marine and offshore applications. Their versatile range of applications also covers:
Among the many functions that our robust drives carry out for marine and offshore technology are controlling bathing platforms, opening and closing all types of windows and hatches, and adjusting the tilt angle of GPS antennas. Thanks to their maintenance-free motors, reliable adjustments and simple operations, linear drives from Phoenix Mecano ensure a comfortable experience at sea. Phoenix Mecano also designs and develops customized variants of drive technology which are precisely tailored to specific applications.
Comfort is just as much in demand on the high seas as it is in the field or in the factory. Many things should be moved at the push of a button, some fully automatically. Yachts and sailboats need adjustment solutions for their many configurable components: from the keel to the GPS antenna. Modern assembly equipment and processing facilities are expected to be convenient and safe to operate.
Linear drives are robotic components. By moving devices, they are able to replace manual operations. Much of what was previously operated by people – often in high waves and darkness – is now moved by linear drives. This improves safety and comfort and reduces personnel.
For linear drives in offshore and marine technology, there are three critical requirements: They must be easy to integrate into the design of the boat or machine. Secondly, they should be easy to control remotely; in other words, they should be smart. And thirdly, they must be able to withstand the harsh conditions at sea: the salt spray, the wetness, the temperature fluctuations and the blows from a storm.
Phoenix Mecano's drive solutions combine extreme robustness with precision and simple integration into designs of all kinds. You will benefit from these seven advantages:
