Electric Cylinder delivers thrust up to 114 kN.

Press Release Summary:

Featuring 125 mm frame size with oversized ball screw and thrust bearings, Model ETH125 utilizes integrated drive train and guidance design that maximizes overall thrust capacity, offering energy-efficient solution to hydraulic actuation. Unit features max stroke of 2 m, max speed of 1.7 m/s, and max acceleration of 15 m/s². IP54-rated as standard with options for IP65 and higher, cylinder provides bi-directional repeatability of ±0.03 mm, ±0.05 mm for parallel mount.

Original Press Release:

Parker Releases Space- and Cost-saving ETH125 High-force Electric Cylinder

The new 125mm frame size dramatically extends the thrust force capacity, making it industry leading for ball screw technology and comparable to roller screws for a fraction of the cost

Irwin, PA, – Parker’s Electromechanical Automation Division, a leading supplier of motion control technology, is pleased to announce the release of the ETH125 electric cylinder.

Parker’s latest addition to the ETH product line serves to further extend the performance range of the series and create a family of products that maintains the greatest thrust density of any ball screw driven actuator on the market today. The ETH125 is the fifth and largest frame size in the series and expands this line of industrial cylinder product to serve a much broader range of application requirements.

The ETH is the next generation of electric thrust cylinder product and utilizes a completely new integrated drive train and guidance design that has enabled Parker to maximize the overall thrust capacity within a smaller overall footprint. With the development of the 125mm frame size, Parker’s ETH now spans a thrust range up to 114,000 N (25,618 lbs) and has been designed to compete with similarly sized roller screw products and offer an energy efficient solution to hydraulic actuation.

With a wide range of standard configurable options, as well as customizable solutions, the ETH is designed to solve today’s most challenging applications.
