Parker Releases Full Production of All OSPE Origa System Plus Electromechanical Actuator Series Built in the USA
Multiple options significantly reduce time to market
Rohnert Park, CA – Parker’s Electromechanical Automation Division, a leading supplier of motion control technology, is pleased to announce the North American release of its OSPE electric actuator series. The OSPE series is the newest family of electric motor-driven actuator systems from Parker.
Developed for reliability in industrial light- to medium-load applications, the OSPE belt- and screw-driven actuators offer different drive trains to solve varying demands regarding speed, thrust force, length and precision. The flexible design of the Origa System Plus series OSPE offer actuators that are easy to size, select and design into new or existing machine designs. Multiple options like a choice of bearing systems to solve different load requirements or variable mounting options make machine integration flexible and reduce the effort to find the right product and deliver it to your market in less time.
The belt-driven actuators solve high dynamic, speed, length and load requirements in light- to heavy-duty applications, while the screw-driven actuators are designed for high thrust force transmission in precise, reliable positioning applications. The OSPE series offers short lead times and an expanded motor and gearbox mounting as standard options to make the designing process easier than ever before.
“The Origa System Plus as a world-leading brand for electromechanical and pneumatic actuation is well known in markets like materials handling, packaging and labeling, machine tool transfer and many others in demanding environments for process motion, wide speed processes or point to point applications,” says Denis Eckstein, Parker product manager. “If expectations for an application include reliability, flexibility, sustainability or optimal return on investment, the OSP rodless series and its proven history in thousands of worldwide, robust industrial applications is the ideal choice.”
With global availability and manufacturing locations in US, Europe and Asia, the OSPE provides a truer cost of ownership through local support, reduced shipping costs and fast response times.
The OSPE Series includes:
OSPE B Belt Actuator
The Parker OSPE B belt-driven linear actuator is a cost-effective solution designed for light to medium industrial applications requiring high speeds and long travels.
OSPE BHD Belt Actuator with Integrated Ball Bearing
The Parker OSPE BHD belt-driven actuator is the highest performing series from the Origa System Plus family. This actuator, which comes standard with an integrated ball bearing guide, uses a side-driven belt design, offering such desirable features as high rigidity and a low-profile design.
OSPE SB Ball Screw Actuator
The Parker OSPE SB ball screw driven Rodless actuator is designed for light to medium industrial applications requiring precise positioning and high thrust forces at 100% duty cycle.
OSPE ST Trapezoidal Screw Actuator
The Parker OSPE ST trapezoidal (lead) screw driven Rodless actuator is a cost effective solution utilizing a trapezoidal screw, which is ideal for lower speed and highest thrust force transmission with no back drive.
