Assistive devices, such as bionic limbs, exoskeletons, rehabilitation and other service robots need ‘muscle-equivalent’ motion control.

This need crosses over into established sectors heavily dependent on mobile systems, such as aerospace, med-tech and agriculture.

WaveDrives new actuation technology, incorporated in the SILA linear actuators, has been developed to address these needs.

* New SILA EC-205 electric actuator available

We are pleased to announce that the latest version of SILA electric actuator is available and ready for trial applications.

The SILA EC-205 Wavedrive has a number of upgraded design features providing:

  • Reduction in size
  • Reduced part count
  • 2x speed of movement
  • Reduced cogging torque
  • Super quiet operation
  • Minimal heat generation
  • 1.5 kN of thrust at 48V
