What does the company do?
Since 1987 we develop and produce electric linear actuators and screw jacks.
They are electromechanical devices that convert the rotatory motion of a DC or AC motor into a linear movement, allowing lifting, adjusting, rotating of any load: the motor starts to move a threaded stem on which runs a nut. The nut, linked to the rotation, produces the linear movement of this stem.
The usage of electric current, compared to hydraulic and pneumatic systems, allows the use of our products in different fields, such as food, medical, as well as automotive, defense, industrial, steel and renewable energy, avoiding pumps, valves and pipes, and excluding the risk of contamination due to oil leaks.
In addition to our standard range, we manufacture also customized products, tailored to meet the specific needs of each application, in close collaboration with our customers.
What is your flagship product?
Within our wide range, we are developing the model ALI3 IM, a new linear actuator with 90° DC motor, 24 V.
It is able to generate a force up to 6.000 N, with excellent speed and low absorption, and has integrated micro switches, wired and fixes, together with a stroke up to 800 mm.
When and why did the collaboration between the ISB brand and MecVel begin?
In 2012, as our company has always been focused on the quality of products, we have undertaken a careful market research in order to select a supplier able to satisfy the needs of most of our customers.
ISB resulted to be the best solution in terms of quality-price ratio and, having an important internal laboratory for controls and tests, constantly provides confirmation about the level of the supplied components.
What are the advantages of working with ISB?
The collaboration with ISB and the use of these bearings on our linear actuators has contributed to improve the performances of our products, and to succeed in tests required from important customers.
What are the plans for the future?
With the development of our new ALI3 IM we want to propose the company on markets with important numbers, such as India for example, providing an innovative and competitive linear actuator: an essential element to succeed in such an ambitious operation.
Moreover, our participation to international trade fairs confirms the intent to expand our market, as we are sure of the value of the products we offer.
