Actuator for heavy duty applications

Schaeffler UK has extended its range of tandem actuator units with triple toothed belt drives, to enable machine builders and designers to move higher loads and masses with even higher positional accuracy up to a maximum speed of 3m/s, while supporting high moment loads about all three axes. Schaeffler's new MDKUSE35-3ZR tandem actuator incorporates a support rail, a triple toothed belt drive, two return units (for the toothed belt drive), and a carriage. The triple toothed belt drive system withstands high dynamic loads and offers triple security. The actuators are therefore suitable for both horizontal and vertical mounting applications. The heavy-duty actuators use a composite support rail, which comprises an anodised profiled aluminium section with two parallel guideways for linear ball bearing and guideway assemblies KUSE. The linear ball bearing and guideway assemblies are preloaded clearance-free and run completely free from 'stick-slip'. And, because the support rail is extremely rigid, it can be used to span large gaps of up to 6m. The support rail has slots that are designed for T-bolts (DIN 787) and T-nuts (DIN 508).
