Electromechanical cylinders

The co. releases a new series of electromechanical (EMC) cylinders to provide high thrust and high speed capabilities with greater flexibility and control for applications traditionally using hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders. The cylinders' combination of power, speed and their corrosion-resistant construction makes them suited to applications in packaging and material handling, assembly and robotics, wood manufacturing, metal forming, plastics, paper converting and web handling, the co. states. The cylinders contain a precision-rolled ball screw actuator, providing high positioning accuracy and repeatability while eliminating stick-slip effect. They are available in six sizes ranging from 32 to 100, with stroke lengths of up to 2,000 mm, and speed capabilities of up to 1.6 m/sec. Each unit is rated to an IP65 degree of protection.
