Market segment:


The start-up

Cascade Drives has developed the next generation of electromechanical linear drives for mobile and industrial applications with high load capacity combined with high speed.

The need

To reduce energy consumption and emissions, an on-going transition to all-electric solutions for industry equipment is required. However, there is no substitute for hydraulic cylinders in large and heavy applications with higher forces, power and robustness requirements.

The solution

Cascade Drives’ electromechanical linear drive utilises a unique gearbox technology which enables high performance capabilities of high load and high speed capacity as well as high energy efficiency. The high performance attributes achieved by Cascade Drives technology make it suitable for heavy-duty operations and enables all-electrification in heavy equipment where it hasn’t been possible before.

The value proposition

  • Combine both high load capacity and high speed.
  • Lower life cycle costs – less expensive motion control and reduced operational costs.
  • Maximises the productivity of customer equipment.
  • Reduces emissions, fuel cost and environmental threat.
