Electromechanical Actuation

NMG Aerospace has been in electromechanical actuation for over 20 years. We have a line of multiple generations of motor actuators, each besting the previous in some way. We constantly strive to better our products by reducing weight and increasing torque for various customer requirements. What started out in water systems has now grown to include fuel and hydraulic fluids. With the acquisition of Electromotive Inc., NMG now offers full solenoid and solenoid valve design and manufacture capability.

Our electromechanical actuation division manufactures the following products:

NMG Aerospace is a key supplier to industry leaders of deicing equipment systems, delivering hardware such as high temperature pressure regulation valves, isolation valves, relief valves and distribution valves. Additionally, NMG offers the responsiveness and flexibility of a smaller contractor as well as the precision design, testing, engineering and qualification services you would find at some of the largest aerospace manufacturers.

Hydraulic Valves

Electromotive Inc. has been a leader in the design and manufacturing of custom solenoid valves and actuators since 1972. Electromotive Inc. was acquired by NMG Aerospace in 2016. Now, NMG and Electromotive combine their experience in the design and manufacturing of aerospace components to produce solenoid valves and actuators with improved performance and longevity.

NMG Aerospace is a leading product innovator and manufacturer of aerospace motor actuators/motor actuated valves of which can support fuel, air, water and hydraulic fluid. Our modular design approach allows for 30+ different configurations to meet our customer’s unique needs using a common motor drive train. We offer multiple models of motor actuated valves, all of which are qualified to the RTCA/DO-160.

Gen 1 & Gen 1a Motor Actuators

Gen 1 Motor ActuatorsOur first generation includes vertical motor actuated valves. These valves are designed to spec and fully qualified for potable water systems. Our Gen 1 motor actuated valves are extremely lightweight for their torque range and are available with ½” to ¾” ball valves with the ability to actuate 90° to 180° with a manual override.

With Gen 1A, we were able to reduce the weight of the actuator by over a half pound without losing any power!

Gen 2 Motor Actuators
Gen 2 Motor ActuatorsOur second generation involves horizontal motor actuated valves. This generation of motor actuators offers a lower profile with increased torque up to 300+ inch pounds. These valves can also be set up for any position with 360° actuation that can become a drive.

Gen 3 Motor Actuators
Gen 3 Motor ActuatorsOur third generation motor actuators are currently in development. These motor actuators offer diagnostic and prognostic metrics and offers programmable actuation profiles.

We are also capable of producing solenoids with diameters from ¼” to 10” and lengths from ½” to 12” depending on your application.

Reliable Service and Quality Assurance

At our Stow, OH facility, we combine our resources and industry expertise to design, develop and manufacture products for optimal performance in your application. Our engineering staff is equipped to work directly with you and your staff to create the exact solutions you need and fulfill your applications unique requirements. Additionally, with Stow’s low labor rates and reduced cost of living, we can offer competitive pricing for our solenoid manufacturing services.

Here at NMG Aerospace, we offer a variety of services including product development, design to spec, build to print and the qualification of each part for their specific aircraft platform. We offer have the ability to offer the flexibility and responsiveness of a smaller manufacturer as well as design, engineering, testing and qualification services comparable to the largest aerospace manufacturers.

Customers of NMG Aerospace also receive the advantage of effective quality assurance. We employ a proprietary numerical analysis program to accurately assess the endurance, temperature, and performance of their solenoid valves. This program was developed from over 20 years experience working with aerospace solenoid valves and valves for military vehicles. As a result, we can ensure each of our customers receives solenoid components that meet and exceed their performance requirements.
