Electrohydrostatic Actuation Systems (EAS) are emerging as viable options for industrial machine builders seeking for compact alternatives to traditional hydraulic or electromechanical motion control solutions.
Electrohydrostatic Actuation Systems describe systems that have both hydraulic and electric technology in a self-contained package. Electrohydrostatic Actuation Systems are options for traditionally hydraulic applications where high force capability is required and energy savings, environmental cleanliness or elimination of piping are needed. Conversely, EAS are options for traditionally electric applications requiring advanced fail-safe systems.
Based on the Electrohydrostatic Pump (EPU), the EAS combines the EPU and any optional parts a customer might need, such as drives, manifolds, or cylinders. All components are Moog products that meet the highest standards of reliability and quality
High energy efficiency reducing operating costs
Environmental cleanliness lowering maintenance & operating costs, as wells risk of fire
High-force capability providing a viable alternative to EH actuation
Unique manifold Interface enabling direct mounting, reducing piping and maintenance efforts
Self-contained and compact product design reducing and machine footprint
Moog Australia | Precision Motion Control Products
Moog Inc. is a worldwide designer, manufacturer, and integrator of precision motion control products and systems. Moog’s high-performance systems control military and commercial aircraft, satellites and space vehicles, launch vehicles, missiles, industrial machinery, wind energy, marine applications, and medical equipment.
Over fifty years ago, we started as designer and supplier of aircraft and missile components. Today, our motion control technology enhances performance in a variety of markets and applications, from commercial aircraft cockpits, to power-generation turbines, to Formula One racing, to medical infusion systems.
Our history begins with our founder, William C. Moog – inventor, entrepreneur and visionary. In 1951, Bill Moog developed the electro-hydraulic servo valve, a device that translates tiny, electrical impulses into precise and powerful movement. In July of 1951, Bill, his brother Arthur, and Lou Geyer, rented a corner of the abandoned Proner Airport in East Aurora and formed the Moog Valve Company.
The first order for four valves was sold to Bendix Aviation. Larger orders followed from Boeing and Convair. The servovalve revolutionized the aerospace industry and led to the creation of Moog Inc. By 1954, Moog valves were standard equipment on about half of all US fighter planes and more than 70% of all guided missiles.
The introduction of the industrial valve was a success, and by 1960 total sales had grown to more than $10 million. In the aerospace arena, in one of our proudest achievements, our engineers designed and manufactured the actuators on the Saturn C-5 rocket that carried Neil Armstrong to his historic first step on the moon in July 1969.
