Industry Leading Solutions for Any Application

Our product range extends far beyond specific industry solutions. While we pride ourselves on developing specialized solutions, automation is reaching into all areas of life: we are prepared for any application and all requirements.

Let's Talk

Industry Challenges

  • It can be difficult to source an actuator that exactly fits your needs, particularly if they’re for an existing application.
  • Investment and installation of motion control products can seem tedious for certain applications.

Our Solution

  • Progressive Automations specializes in providing custom options to suit any project, including existing applications.
  • Our engineering team is on-hand to ensure you get the best value for money and have a seamless installation process.

Popular Applications

When it comes to automation, the limitations are only set by your imagination. Find solutions for any application, and optimize your work environment with diverse linear motion products.

Windows & Shades

Experience ultimate comfort and coordination with actuated windows and skylights. Our ‘set it and forget it’ solutions are maintenance-free that can be smart home ready. Weather-proof options are also available for outdoor shades or greenhouses that would need that extra bit of protection. 

Kitchen Equipment

Electric actuators for kitchens allow you to raise and lower baskets into vats at ideal times for perfect frying – regardless of how busy it is. Our actuators have been designed for high heat resistance and can be washdown ready. Automate processes that would normally take critical time out of your day.

Hexapods

Achieve six degrees of freedom with three pairs of actuators that can be connected to a central PLC. For ultimate movement control, our actuators have high precision and duty cycles, ensuring you never compromise on performance. Our versatile range of actuators are perfect for motion simulation projects.

Signage & Boards

Choose an outdoor actuator that is as rugged as its environment thanks to our high ingress protection ratings. Relevant applications that would benefit include traffic and public safety signage for construction sites, or dynamic advertising boards.

Light/Power Towers

Implement automation into sites that need that extra bit of power or light. Enable remote use of mobile power generation for construction and mining sites or simplify the use of adjustable light and surveillance towers for working at night.

Our Customization Capabilities

Positional Feedback

Analog or digital, we offer a variety of feedback options such as hall effect sensors, potentiometers, reed switches and limit switch feedback. Some of our actuators are available with onboard RS-485 or TTL/PWM communications protocol.

Stroke Length

Exact stroke lengths can be customized down to the millimeter or inch, with maximum strokes of over 1500 millimeter or 60 inches. With hundreds of options in stock at all times, you don’t have to wait around for a perfect fit.

Force

From a few Newtons to over 65kN, we have options for applications of all sizes. Flexibly trade off force for speed, or vice versa, and get the ideal combination to fit your needs.

Connectors

The connectors that come with each actuator are changeable based on your requirements. Our actuators generally come with either tinned wires or Mini Fit Jr Molex Connectors pre-installed, but the choice is yours.

Motor or Stroke Mounting Ends

We have multiple customization options available to suit your actuator’s mounting requirements. Fisheye, mounting holes, any clevis type, trunnions, or custom designed solutions are available.

Voltage

You can increase or decrease the voltage of your actuator to suit your application. From 7.4V DC to 48V DC, we have a wide range to fit your needs. You can also avail of plug and play solutions if AC power is required.

IP Rating

Do you need that extra bit of protection for your actuator? Salt-spray and anti-corrosive coatings may be the way to go. Upgrade your unit today with IP69K ingress protection for peace of mind and long unit life.

Positional Feedback

Analog or digital, we offer a variety of feedback options such as hall effect sensors, potentiometers, reed switches and limit switch feedback. Some of our actuators are available with onboard RS-485 or TTL/PWM communications protocol.
