A Resource on Electric Linear Actuators:  
What a machine designer needs to know

Industrial automation counts on the reliable motion control that linear actuators provide.  Lately, electric linear actuators have gotten more popular because they offer better control of variables like speed, acceleration, position and force than pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders.  Electric actuators also offer superior accuracy and repeatability, as well as programmable control that can handle even complex motion profiles.  In many applications they can do all this at a lower cost of ownership than pneumatic or hydraulic actuators.

Now there’s a resource from Tolomatic that lays out all the issues a designer needs to understand in order to select the best electric linear actuator for an application.  You can download a copy of our ebook resource HERE.

Download Tolomatic’s New e-book HERE and learn:

  • Why electric actuators?
  • Critical concepts of accuracy and repeatabiltiy
  • How to select the right actuator
  • Motor selection and system installation considerations
  • Electric actuator applications that improve efficiency
  • How to define a true total cost of ownership in an installation

Application for equipment press-fitting onto a printed circuit board

Functions used: Positioning and Pushing

Functions used: Positioning and Pushing

IAI‘s ROBO Cylinder® was adopted for equipment that performs both processes of applying silicon to a printed circuit board and press-fitting a cover.

While the printed circuit board is moved with the RCP3-SA5R on the bottom, the coating and press-fitting are performed with the RCA2-TW4N on the top.

Automating a manual process has doubled the production efficiency.

Also, the changeover became easy whenever the workpiece changed, which reduced the amount of man hours necessary.

Netzer DS-58 Absolute Position Rotary Encoder with 18 bit resolution

Netzer’s world-wide patented, rugged high performance Electric Encoder™ technology, suits a wide variety of applications ranging from space and avionics, through military and defense, to instrumentation and automotive.  Netzer Rotary Encoders feature absolute or incremental position feedback providing analog or digital outputs.

Netzer DS-58 Encoder

Netzer DS-58 Encoder

The Non-contact, absolute-position Electric Encoder™ relies on interaction between the measured displacement and an internally shielded, space/time modulated, electric field and offers features unsurpassed by traditional optical and magnetic encoders.

The DS-58 is a member of the DS series of Non-contact, absolute-position Electric Encoders™, based on Netzer Precision proprietary technology.  These encoders offer many advantages, some unparalleled:

  • Low profile (17 mm) & low weight
  • 18bit resolution
  • < 0.02° accuracy
  • Analog Sin/Cos, Digital SSi , or Digital AqB+I  outputs
  • Hollow, floating shaft
  • No bearings or other contacting elements
  • Low power options
  • Analog or multiple digital interface options
  • High tolerance to temperature, shock, moisture, EMI, RFI and Magnetic fields

SilverMax NEMA 23 Frame Direct Drive Series by QuickSilver Controls Inc.

QuickSilver Controls, Inc.  is proud to introduce a new full range of NEMA 23 frame Direct Drive Hybrid Servo Motors .  Four stack sizes provide 80 oz-in (.56 Nm) through 430 oz-In (3 Nm) continuous torque, with top speeds from 1000 – 4000 RPM.

QuickSilver Controls SilverMax Motors

Hybrid Servo motors are very well suited for Direct Drive applications – eliminating the need for gear heads in most applications.  These high torque motors match well to loads in the 500-2000 RPM speed range, typical of lead screws and belt drives, and can provide a significant increase in both power and efficiency over conventional servo motors in these speed ranges.

The PVIA control system includes patented damping methods to allow wide ranges of inertial mismatch without retuning or notch filters, reducing the need for inertial matching of the motor to the load. 100:1 inertial mismatch ratios are easily tuned.

The intuitive command language allows for easy program creation/modification/debug using the free QuickControl® environment available from their web site.  The programming environment provides for two programming threads in addition to an active motion.  Sophisticated programs can be easily implemented. Serial communications include MODBUS® RTU, 8bit ASCII, 9bit binary, and DMX512. CANopen® is simultaneously available with the serial options.

Seven IO are provided for external interfacing.  Programmable terminations allow the IO to be pulled high, pulled low, or floated while in input mode. All of the IO may also be used as analog inputs, with one channel also supporting 0-10v analog control.
