Electric cylinders designed to replace pneumatics
SMAC has announced the introduction of its new CA range of electric cylinders. Starting with 25mm and 35mm diameter actuators the range will consist of cylinders from 8mm diameter up to 100mm diameter with stroke lengths of up to 100mm. They have been designed to accept a wide variety of mounting options that include ISO, DIN, VDMA, CETOP, JFPA and NFPA standards and dimensions. This enables the direct replacement of existing pneumatic cylinders and retro-fitting without any machine modifications being required.
The electric cylinders are manufactured from high grade stainless steel with a minimum wall thickness of 1.5mm making them extremely robust against when compared against traditional thin walled pneumatic cylinders. They also incorporate non-rotating piston rods as standard. They have a protection rating of IP54 with IP65 and IP67 available upon request. They also have full CE approval and certification. These features make them ideal for converting conventional pneumatic applications to electric where an exceptionally high degree of speed, cycle life, precision and accuracy is critical. Due to the innovative design and construction cylinder acceleration of up to 40g can be achieved and they have been designed to offer a life expectancy of around 100 million cycles as a minimum.
