Modular SKF CASM-100 electromechanical actuators

SKF CASM-100 electromechanical actuators from SKF Motion Technologies, Inc. have been uniquely engineered with a modular design enabling tailored solutions for a wide range of industrial linear movement and positioning applications. Various modules are available, providing choices among motor types, gearboxes, ball screws or roller screws, and accessories allowing for custom combinations of components ideally suited for an application. Standardized interfaces connect the different components to each other for ideal operation of actuators in service.

These actuators deliver optimised performance in speed, load capacity, and positioning accuracy, perform virtually maintenance free and, compared with hydraulic or pneumatic systems, serve as more environmentally friendly and energy-efficient solutions. In addition, they use up to 80% less energy than pneumatic cylinders and 50% less energy than hydraulic alternatives, and eliminate any need for constantly running components.

Featuring a linear design that can withstand even the harshest operating conditions, CASM-100 actuators are manufactured from high-grade materials, boast a long service life, and offer superior precision and repeatability. They can deliver a force range up to 82kN / 18,400 lbf, linear speeds up to 890 mm/s, long stroke lengths (up to 2 m / 6.5 ft.), and will support Industry 4.0 technology objectives.

CASM-100 actuators can fit standard industry footprints and can easily facilitate system retrofits or conversions to meet any space and performance requirements.
