Kollmorgen has introduced the EC1 Electric Cylinders, a high-performance linear positioning alternative to pneumatic and hydraulic systems in applications requiring continuous thrust of ≤150 lb. (660-N). Features of the electric cylinders include:
- Smooth, controllable speed up to 0.325-m/s (13-in/s).
- Accurate mid-stroke positioning and position holding without power (with brake option).
- Compact footprint.
- Standard stroke lengths from 50-mm up to 200-mm.
- Maximum payload weight of 150-lbs at 100 percent duty cycle.
- Repeatability to ± 0.001-in with lead accuracy to ± 0.004-in/ft, with backlash of just 0.015-in.
