Hydraulics have traditionally provided much of the muscle for the industrial revolution, but that functionality has come with a cost. Hydraulic systems  are complicated and messy, labor and space-consuming, and expensive to  operate and maintain. For many years, these systems have been the only  option for several applications. Today, however, advanced electric linear  actuators offer a high-power, zero maintenance solution that is simpler,  cleaner and more controllable than its hydraulic counterparts. If you  typically specify hydraulic cylinders for your machine designs, here are some  good reasons to consider electric alternatives.
