Press Release Summary:
CARE 33 Actuator Systems come in 3 models (33A, 33M, and 33H), and depending on type, deliver stroke lengths from 50 to 500 mm; accommodate dynamic loads from 800 to 2000 N; and deliver speeds ranging from 8 to 45 mm/sec. Floating gearbox allows load path to pass directly through support bearing located in rear attachment. Options include power-safety, overload protection, transformer cutoff, infrared remote control, and CAXC limit switches.
Original Press Release:
SKF(R) 'CARE 33' Actuator Systems Enable Safe And Reliable Positioning Of Equipment
The series of CARE 33 Actuator Systems introduced by SKF Motion Technologies (Bethlehem, PA) is designed to enable safe and reliable power-driven positioning of equipment utilized in a wide range of healthcare and ergonomic applications. The design of these actuators further promotes high dynamic load capacity, silent operation, and low current consumption.
CARE 33 actuators are available in three basic models (CARE 33A, CARE 33M, and CARE 33H). Depending on the type, these actuators can deliver stroke lengths ranging from 50mm to 500mm; accommodate dynamic loads ranging from 800N to 2000N; and deliver speeds ranging from 8mm/sec. to 45mm/sec.
CARE 33 actuators feature a "floating" gearbox that allows the load path to pass directly through a support bearing located in the rear attachment, which promotes longer operational life and minimal transmitted noise. Extra features can include power-safety, overload protection, transformer cutoff, infrared remote control, and CAXC limit switches, among others.
These actuators are ideal to perform a variety of positioning functions, such as raising/lowering or various other stages of adjustment. Systems can be custom-designed further to satisfy particular application requirements.
