Some machine designers think the selection of electric high-force linear actuators is limited. But the truth is the range of electric high force actuation solutions is expanding.
Tolomatic’s high force electric rod-style actuator offering now features expanded stroke lengths up to 1.5 m (60 in.), allowing more flexibility for converting motion control applications from hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders to electric. Designed for high duty-cycle performance in demanding applications, the RSX, RSA, ERD and IMA electric rod-style product families utilize planetary roller screws for long service life.
Tolomatic’s highest-force actuator, the RSX extreme force linear actuator series, is expanded from 600 mm to 1.5 m stroke length. The RSA and ERD are expanded from 450 mm to 1.5 m and 1.2 m, respectively.
The RSX extreme force electric linear actuator family includes two models: the RSX096 that provides forces up to 133.5 kN (30,000 lbf) and the new RSX080, an economical actuator solution with forces up to 80 kN (18,000 lbf).
The RSA HT is available in four sizes, with forces up to 58 kN (13,039 lbf) and is the most flexible product line for fluid power replacement. The ERD stainless steel, hygienic electric actuator, rated IP69K for applications is available with forces up to 35 kN (7,868 lbf).
The IMA linear servo actuator and ServoWeld® resistance spot welding actuator platforms are also available at various thrust ratings and stroke lengths.
