Plug & Work: EleCylinder with Built-in Controller
EleCylinder is the name for the latest series of electric cylinders for the quick and inexpensive changeover to pneumatic-free manufacturing. In addition, these energy-saving actuators for two adjustable positions offer a much wider range of performance than pneumatic cylinders.
They can be easily programmed via the built-in controller and, in contrast to pneumatic cylinders, they are able to execute slow, uniform speeds over the entire stroke. Even gentle starting or breaking is no longer a problem. Due to the possible high-speed movements, EleCylinders fit also perfectly in high throughput applications. In addition, EleCylinders are low-noise and almost maintenance-free.
Efficiency from 60% to 90% higher than pneumatic cylinders
Various scientific studies have already provided evidence that a savings potential of up to 90 percent can be realized when replacing pneumatic positioning systems with electromechanical ones. The generation and distribution of compressed air is associated with very high losses, which can only be optimised to a limited extent due to technological limitations.
Fast and easy programming
With integrated controllers EleCylinder actuators are very easy to program and depending on the application, process-speeds, acceleration and braking cycles are specified as well as the actual positions.
Like all electrical actuators, the new EleCylinders can effortlessly maintain slow, unfluctuating speeds throughout the entire stroke.
Radial Cylinder - for radial and eccentric loads
The radial cylinder is equipped with a built-in ball circulating type linear guide in the rod body. No external guide is required, as both radial loads and eccentric loads can be applied.
Since it has a built-in linear guide and the rod is supported by the guide, there is no runout to the tip. It can be used even in narrow spaces to save overall space because there is no need for an external guide.
Wireless communication via touch panel
In combination with the EleCylinder series the touch panel "TB-03" can communicate wirelessly with the new electrical actuators. The user benefits from the ability to easily reprogram actuators which are concealed behind fixed covers externally at any time.
