Powerful linear motion

High-power linear action

Cascade Drives electromechanical linear actuators are made for heavy-duty applications where high load in combination with high speed are key features. Thanks to low internal inertia, acceleration and deacceleration use a minimum of energy. Unlike any other electromechanical actuators, Cascade Drives actuators can handle shock loads. Applications such as lifting, tilting and side shift are now possible to electrify.


Revolutionary speed and load ratio thanks to low internal inertia.


The electromechanical mechanism allows for high overall efficiency. Regenerative features in vertical applications.


Micrometer positioning of rack thanks to built-in high-resolution encoders and motor controllers.

Product features

Compact design

Compact solution for plug-and-play installation without the need for auxiliary mechanical systems.

Optimized load cycle

Acceleration, travel and deceleration profile curves are easily tailored for specific applications to optimize energy use.

Long life

Designed for life-long operation with negligible maintenance requirements.


Options for unlimited predefined go-to-positions available thanks to built-in positioning encoders.


Superior travel speed allows for improved productivity.


No hydraulic fluids mean no risk of oil spills.

A fully electric forklift

As the industry is increasingly looking at fully electric forklifts we can now offer a replacement for hydraulics and energy-consuming lift actuators. These new electro-mechanical Cascade Power drives offer both lower power consumption and higher performance. With built-in energy regeneration capability, our drives provide even longer operation duty cycles.
