SMAC CBL35C Programmable Electric Cylinder

Introducing the 35mm diameter CBL35C electric cylinder with built-in controller. The new CBL35C series electric cylinder with built-in controller in a single package enables the direct replacement of existing pneumatic cylinders and retro-fits without any machine modifications required. With our built-in controller, the CBL35C can control the force, speed and velocity profile. The CBL35C with built-in controller allows simple installation and effective use of space.

The CBL35C provides significantly longer life, programmability, high speed, accuracy and energy efficiency while remaining price-competitive. The CBL35C also provides more sustainable solution by not requiring costly compressed air.

Our Graphical User Interface is also available for the built-in controller for easy, straightforward setup of parameters. It allows you to change product profiles on the fly and improves factory uptime.

New Electric Linear Actuator ebook: A valuable resource

Tolomatic-Electric-Linear-Motion-eBook

Tolomatic-Electric-Linear-Motion-eBook

New Tolomatic e-book:
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

Low-cost Belt-drive Actuator designed for harsh environments, loads up to 520 lbs (235 kg) by Tolomatic

New trapezoidal solid-bearing actuator design optimizes performance in moderate-loading applications requiring high duty cycle and high speed over long strokes.

Tolomatic MXB-S Belt-Drive Actuator

Tolomatic MXB-S Belt-Drive Actuator

Tolomatic’s family of MXB electric belt-drive actuators includes a new solid bearing load-carrying design ideal for harsh environments.  The trapezoidal solid bearing provides a rigid, long-lasting bearing system capable of operating in environments that roller bearings would not be able to withstand.  With loads up to 520 lbs. (235 kg), speeds up to 100 in/sec (2.54 m/sec) and strokes up to 230 in (5.8 m), the MXB-S belt-drive actuators an economical solution for light- to moderate-loading applications requiring high duty cycle and high speeds over long strokes.  The MXB-S actuator can withstand light wash down.

“The trapezoidal solid bearing slides along the extrusion, acting as a wiper against contaminants that would clog up a roller bearing belt drive actuator,” said Nick Holmgard, product marketing engineer.

The MXB-S is available in six body sizes with in-line motor mounts as well as reverse parallel mounts with 3:1 timing belt reductions.  When paired with the ACS servo or stepper EtherNet/IP™-enabled drive and motor package, or with third-party motor and drive utilizing the Your Motor Here® program, the MXB-S actuator is easy to set up and integrate into many applications.

In addition to the MXB-S, Tolomatic’s MXB family of high-speed linear belt actuators, offering long strokes with optimal performance, include the MXB-U unguided belt-drive actuator for applications where loads are externally guided and supported, and the MXB-P heavy duty linear actuator with profiled rail bearing and belt-drive drive to achieve heavy loads and high speeds.

Harmonic SHA-CG Actuator

Harmonic SHA-CG Actuator

The SHA-CG actuators feature a compact, hollow shaft configuration for design versatility in demanding applications. Ideal for machine tool applications, the SHA Series of brushless actuators provide high torque for fast acceleration and positioning. SHA-CG actuators are composed of a Harmonic Drive® CSG zero-backlash gear combined with a brushless servomotor with an encoder resolution at the output up to 20,971,520 pulse/rev.

The actuators are also available with an optional brake. Positional accuracy better than 1 arc-min and repeatability better than ±5 arc-sec is achieved while delivering up to 3,400 N m of torque. A robust cross-roller bearing allows mounting of large loads directly to the actuator without the need for additional support.

The SHA-CG has a Torque to Weight ratio as much as 8 times greater than comparable housed direct drive motors, and a Torque to Volume ratio as much as 6 times greater. This allows for a more compact and light-weight machine design.

Actuator Life- How to Estimate for Ball and Roller Screw Actuators

Estimating how long a piece of equipment will last in an application is critical information in the specification process. This step-by-step guide examines how to estimate the life of an electric actuator, utilizing ball or roller screw technology, in applications that require constant or varying (changing) loads. In addition, you will learn how to calculate life in units of time (days, years, etc.) and how to compare the expected life of two different solutions.
