Oden Control AB was established in 1996 by Gustav Rennerfelt, a Swedish inventor, who has been designing and engineering special application gearboxes since 1980. The company basic idea was to design and sell on the open market gearboxes and products based on the innovative Oden gear system. From this technique the company started to develop a product range of electrical actuators.
Our business concept is to develop, produce and sell products based on our unique gear techniques. We focus on three main product fields; electric actuators, complete valve solutions and industrial gears.
The electric actuators are used to control valves, mostly in process-oriented industries. The products deliver extremely high precision, have low weight and are easy to install. About 3 500 Oden actuators are today installed around the world. Since 2005 we also offer complete valve solutions including actuator and adapter mounted on valve. Based on the customers demand we deliver the complete valve function, mounted and tested.
Oden Control AB also provides unique gear solutions for a variety of industries and applications. The solutions are either based on the cog reduction gear, Oden gear, or on the friction gear, Frej gear. These new gear technologies, protected by several patents worldwide, have become interesting for several different applications. Height control of tables, hospital bed adjustments, control of car seats are some examples of market areas.
V-series actuators are now available and are tested in very many power plants, paper mills, waterworks and other industries around the world. New V-series actuators are known for high accuracy and force-series actuators are even well known in a paper mill industry. Our Basis Weight actuators with special valves from for example from Somas, Naf, Ramén, Metso and Högfors, will be great product in our actuator family.
