Linear Actuator Distributor Launches ServoLinear.com to Reach More Engineers
Carol Stream, IL—August 30, 2010—Chicago Electric, a distributor of systems to improve production machinery, has partnered with ThomasNet’s Web Solutions Group to launch ServoLinear.com.
ServoLinear’s actuators are furnished as a complete motion control solution including servo motors and positioning controllers. These components are necessary for a wide variety of applications including automatic assembly, packaging and material handling machinery.
ThomasNet’s Web Solutions Group created ServoLinear.com to reach more engineers who need to research and configure a custom system for their particular application.
ServoLinear.com is now the place for engineers to go to see detailed information and specs on everything from single axis actuators to complete machine solutions with an emphasis on high performance systems.
Chicago Electric’s President, Bob Kaska, recognized early on that engineers were increasingly relying on the Internet to research the products they need. “ServoLinear.com is an extension of what we do,” he said, adding, “Today’s manufacturing is automated and we’re delivering a prospective customer all of the technical specs, examples, and details they need to make an informed decision.”
Specifically, visitors who click to the site can now:
• Browse by major product categories, such as belt drives, ball screws, or linear motor actuators. Additionally, they can see Servo drive components and a Matrix selector to help them determine what’s right for their needs.
• Compare several products on one page, and evaluate them by specific attributes such as motor, ratio, maximum speed, etc.
• View and enlarge product images and drawings, upload their own drawings, and communicate directly through a Request for Quotations (RFQ) feature.
ServoLinear distributes a complete line of actuators that are part of a motion control solution including servo motors and positioning controllers. The company offers a broad product range of eleven form factors including ball screw, belt drive, and linear motor technology; with strokes from 50 mm (1.9 in) to 5800 mm (228 in). ServoLinear products are pre-engineered for specific performance and work together.
ServoLinear.com is part of Chicago Electric, a 100 year-old family-owned and operated company based in Carol Stream, Illinois.
