Electric linear actuators for civil and defence industries

From the industrial field to the civil one, up to defence, there are several applications supplied by MecVel electric linear actuators for linear automations in these areas.
Regarding electric linear actuators for the defence industry, these are the main solutions:
Mobile camp hospitals for civil protection and shelters: lifting from the ground and placement of shelters and advanced medical posts. These “buildings” act as first aid centre or as communication and control station. MecVel has developed an automated lifting system from the ground, together with an auto-levelling system in case of irregular floor. Electric linear actuators dedicated to this kind of applications allow to reach a variable height to facilitate the equipment loading/unloading, but also place the container/shelter at a “safety” level
Radar: orientation of the dish. MecVel is able to handle the orientation of radars and dishes in order to optimize the monitoring system and the signal coverage. Moreover, electric linear actuators can reposition these devices, placing them in a safe condition in case of atmospheric agents as wind, snow, etc.


MecVel is in the linear automation field since 1987, making experience also in the defence industry: the know-how acquired in more than 30 years leads the company to offer innovative and efficient solutions, with extremely performing and versatile products at the service of linear motions required by radars, dishes, containers and shelters.
Among the advantages must be included the customization service provided by the company, with the purpose to configure each product in detail, tailoring it according to the technical specifications of the application to which it is intended.

In addition, the electric system used offers different benefits if compared to hydraulic and pneumatic ones, first of all the eco-sustainability.
