Tolomatic debuts extreme-force actuator for challenging manufacturing conditions
June 15, 2020
By Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Tolomatic’s expanded extreme-force electric actuator family now includes the RSX128 actuator, rated up to 50,000 pounds of force (222.4 kN).
Designed for replacing hydraulic cylinders and designed for 100 per cent duty cycle, the RSX actuator features Tolomatic’s precision-ground planetary roller screws for operating life in challenging environments.
Applications include assembly, metal fabrication (pressing, punching, clamping), automotive manufacturing, timber processing, motion simulators and more.
The RSX128 actuator represents a 60 per cent increase in the bi-directional maximum force provided by the company’s extreme-force RSX electric actuator family.
Additional frame sizes include the RSX080 which provides 18,000 lbf/80kN and the RSX096P press-model which is optimized to provide extend force up to (40,000 lbf/178 kN).
For all models, IP65 is standard for protection against dust and water spray. IP67 is optional for improved resistance of water ingress.
A modified food-grade version, designed for volumetric filling and other high-force food-and-beverage applications, is available as a custom design with food-grade white epoxy coating and stainless-steel components to meet the requirements of washdown applications.
The entire RSX actuator family’s construction includes tie-rods and Type III hard-coat anodized aluminum housings. A standard internal anti-rotate feature prevents the rod from rotating without external guidance.
