Cost effective alternative to pneumatic actuators

Cost effective alternative to pneumatic actuators
Motion Control Products recently introduced To-lo-matic's new ERD actuator, an economical rod-style electric actuator designed as an alternate to non-repairable pneumatic cylinders. Delivering forces of up to 334N at speeds of up to 1,016 mm/s, the ERD actuators have the added benefit of greater control of speed, accel-eration and force, and therefore is an ideal option for automating manual processes. 

The round-bodied ERD electric actuators are available in three sizes equivalent to 5/8, 1 and 1.5 inch bore non-repairable pneumatic cylinders. The ERD is compatible with NEMA 11, 17 or 23 standard stepper and servo motors to create a flexible, powerful electric actuator solution. The acme leadscrews are available in three lead sizes per model to optimise speed or force.

The ERD actuators, which come with metric-threaded rod-ends, can accommodate six different sensing or switching technologies including reed, solid-state PNP or NPN, normally open, flying leads or quick-disconnect. The switches are activated by a magnet inside the thrust tube. It is perfect for product change over, gating, sorting or diverting applications.

At the forefront of advanced motion control and factory automation, Motion Control Products specialises in solutions which are both innovative and cost-effective.
