Compact Electric Cylinders Offer Improved Performance
Tue, 03/23/2010 - 9:58am
Electric cylinders are a cost effective, high-performance linear positioning alternative to pneumatic and hydraulic systems in applications requiring continuous thrust of ≤150 lb. This product delivers standard stroke lengths from 50 to 200 mm, and can handle a maximum payload weight of 150 lbs at 100% duty cycle. It can deliver repeatability to ±0.001 in. with lead accuracy to ±0.004 in./ft., with backlash of just 0.015 in. This performance, coupled with a compact 4.6 in.+ stroke length × 1.89 in. × 3.25 in. footprint, make this product ideally suited for use in space-restricted applications where precise, repeatable motion is a must.
