EMS provide a comprehensive range of electric linear Actuators and Telescopic columns for a wide range of applications. We have provided actuation systems to the UK market for over 20 years and have vast experience in specifying and supplying the right product for your application. Appointed sole UK distributor for Magnetic Elektromotoren back in 1985 and more recently since their acquisition by SKF as Specialist Distributor, we have the benefit of an expanded product range, as well as the experience and product knowledge to assist you in your selection. The range comprises Actuators and Telescopic columns suitable for use with power supplies ranging from 12/24V DC through to 120/230/380V AC. The thrust force available begins at 200N and reaches as high as 30KN for our most robust industrial designs. Stroke lengths up to 1m can be reached depending on the load and its direction at speeds as high as 174mm/s. As the operating environment for each application can be so different, each actuator has a specific protection rating which determines its suitability in damp or dusty environments. To satisfy the more demanding applications and those in the medical sector where autoclaving is needed a protection rating of IP66 on the actuators and IP67 (submersible) on the auxiliary operating devices is achieved. The operating devices consist of a range of ergonomic handheld switches with up to 10 functions, as well as foot switches and discreet desk mounted switches.

With over 20 years experience, our comprehensive range of smooth and quiet telescopic columns comes in versions, comprising 230V/120V AC and 24V DC with direct drive or integrated power supply. Standard columns are available with push and pull forces up to 4000N and in stroke lengths from 200 up to 700 mm. Made from matt anodised extruded aluminium profiles they are available in 2 or 3-stages depending on the installation length required. The aesthetically pleasing appearance and hard anodised finish make the TELEMAG range ideally suited for applications where the column remains visible. The rigid extrusions and unique guiding system eliminates lateral movement and provides extremely stable and rigid support even under the most demanding offset loads.

To extend our actuator portfolio we also have a comprehensive range of aesthetically pleasing in-line AC and DC actuators from MINGARDI. Originally designed to satisfy the building automation industry these very versatile actuators and chain drives can provide solutions for a range of industrial applications.
