Press Release Summary:
CRAB Series feature modular construction to promote customization, and perform with few moving parts. Preloaded ball-screw assembly and gear-tooth profile virtually eliminate backlash. Actuators can achieve rotational motion ranges from 100 to 360 deg (depending on rack length) and torque capacity exceeding 5100 lbs-ft of force. All are self-contained and ready-to-mount for plug-in operation (AC or DC power supply).

SKF® Rotary Actuators Provide Precise Positioning and Maintenance-Free Operation
SKF® rotary actuators available from SKF Motion Technologies (Bethlehem, PA) are designed to provide precise positioning, efficiency, accuracy, and repeatability in medical, foodservice, ergonomic, and demanding heavy-duty industrial applications. All SKF® rotary actuators (CRAB series) feature modular construction to promote customization and perform with few moving parts (all "lubricated for life" at the factory) for maintenance-free operation.
SKF rotary actuators typically serve as practical and reliable alternatives to conventional worm gears in providing partial rotary motion. Their complete preloaded ball-screw assembly and special gear-tooth profile virtually eliminate backlash and promote precise motion, high repeatability, and high stiffness.
SKF rotary actuators can achieve rotational motion ranges from 100 degrees to 360 degrees (depending on rack length) and torque capacity exceeding 5100 ft.-lbs. of force.
All SKF rotary actuators are compact, self-contained, and delivered ready-to-mount for easy plug-in operation (AC or DC power supply). The actuators can be customized with specialized
internal and external components, including modifications to output shafts, controls, and other options to deliver optimum performance in the most demanding applications.
