Press Release Summary:
Offering all-electric, plug-and-play alternative to hydraulic or pneumatic technologies, CEMC Cylinders provide speeds to 525 mm/sec. Roller screw converts rotary motion into linear movement. Standard CEMCs satisfy most applications up to 83 kN peak force and nominal power up to 6.6 kW. They can be equipped with integral load sensors and internal water-cooled systems. Other features include fail-safe brakes, programmable limit switches, and anti-rotation devices.
Original Press Release:
SKF® Compact Electromechanical Cylinders Provide Powerful Actuation In Small Package
New SKF® compact electromechanical cylinders (CEMC) offer an all-electric "plug-and-play" alternative to hydraulic or pneumatic technologies for optimized machine and process control. The new cylinders can perform with the power of hydraulics and the velocity of pneumatics in a highly integrated and robust small package. The compact and ultra-compact actuators provide a high power density with up to 50% space savings.
Their design minimizes inertia to promote excellent control, responsive performance, and significantly improved cycle times to yield higher productivity. Advantages include higher accelerations, speed, precision under high load, and improved reliability and service life.
CEMC cylinders are easy to install, require minimal maintenance due to fewer components, and enable precise position control and accuracy. Strokes up to 175mm and speeds up to 525mm/sec can be achieved, depending on type.
They incorporate a proven and patented technology based on a roller screw and servo drive. The roller screw efficiently converts rotary motion into linear movement with a quick response time and lower energy consumption.
Because of their compact design, CEMCs are easy to integrate to an hydraulic cylinder retrofit. They can be equipped with integral load sensors and with internal water-cooled systems. Other features include fail-safe brakes, programmable limit switches, and anti-rotation devices.
Standard CEMCs can satisfy most applications up to 83kN peak force and nominal power up to 6.6kW. Available options and accessories expand customization capabilities.
