IAI ROBO Cylinders

IAI ROBO Cylinders

The Robo Cylinder ® is a flexible, intelligent, and economical, ballscrew linear. Economical and easy to use, the Robo Cylinder® is specifically designed to accomplish the simple tasks usually assigned to air cylinders, but with greater flexibility and control.

Offering custom control over position, speed, acceleration, deceleration, and torque, allowing for mid-move velocity changes, and control from a PLC, the Robo Cylinder® is a versatile and easy-to-use alternative to pneumatic cylinders.

An Introduction To Plug-and-Play Motion Subsystems

Bell-Everman White Paper Reprint November 2015

Embedding mechanical motion subsystems into machines improves
performance and reduces cost.

If you build machines, you probably work with actuators and positioning stages every day.  But do you truly get the best performance or lowest cost of ownership from these motion devices?  The answer may not be what you expect.

All too often, engineers think of stages or actuators as just another item on the bill of materials.  As long as the motion device nominally meets the desired positioning, force, payload, speed and cost requirements, it’s good to go.

With simple motion requirements, this approach to stage or actuator selection may yield acceptable results.  However, machines with complex mechanical motion requirements will benefit from an embedded motion design strategy.  Rather than a collection of electromechanical components, which may or may not work well together, embedded motion systems function as true plug-and-play machine subsystems.

Embedded motion systems are engineered to fit within a predefined physical space on a machine and tie into the machine’s motion control system, ready to accept commands from a top-level computer interface, control card or PLC.  At their simplest, embedded motion systems may consist of little more than a stage or actuator that has been connectorized to make the drop-in installation easier.  At their most complex, these motion subsystems extend from pinout to payload.  They encompass not only the motion device itself but also everything it carries…

The IMA servo linear actuator has a unique integrated servo motor design

Tolomatic IMA Actuator Family

Tolomatic IMA Actuator Family

The IMA is an integrated linear servo actuator design in a compact, heavy duty package. Available in both ball and roller screw configurations, the IMA servo linear actuators provide forces up to 6875 lbs even in high duty cycle applications.

Get extremely long service life with IMA linear servo actuators

Utilizing Tolomatic’s patented re-lubrication design, the IMA heavy duty linear servo actuators can easily be relubricated without disassembly for extremely long service life.

IMA linear servo actuator simplifies mechanical design

Tolomatic’s unique integrated linear servo actuator design eliminates:
•Motor Couplers
•Motor Adapters
•Timing Belts
•Gear boxes
•Unneeded assembly labor
•Forced air or water cooling
•Hydraulic systems
•Pneumatic systems
•Need for multiple vendors

What’s the Difference between Pneumatic, Hydraulic, and Electrical Actuators?

White Paper by Carlos Gonzalez | Machine Design  originally posted April 16, 2015

A linear actuator moves a load, which can be an assembly, components, or a finished product, in a straight line. It converts energy into a motion or force and can be powered by pressurized fluid or air, as well as electricity.

Here is a breakdown of common linear actuators, their advantages and their disadvantages….

RSA high-force actuator: Withstands harsh environments

Designed for durability and longevity, the RSA electric rod actuator is an ideal alternative to pneumatic or hydraulic actuators. With guided loads up to 12,900 lbf (57.3kN), optional IP67 and choice of screw technologies, the RSA is built-to-order in stroke lengths up to 60 inches.

Features of HT Option for Tolomatic's RSA Actuator

Features of HT Option for Tolomatic’s RSA Actuator

WHY CHOOSE THE HT OPTION?

• Higher strength components transfer torque from the gearhead/motor through the actuator
• Grease zerk allows convenient relubrication for extended screw service life
• Allows convenient addition of gearbox to RP (Reverse Parallel mount) actuator
• Accommodates mounting large motors with up to 165mm bolt circle pattern
