New Generation of Rod Types
The latest generation of compact rod types is available under the series name RCP6. All linear actuators in this new series are characterised above all by their greatly increased mechanical stability as well as their very much improved positioning accuracy. Positioning repeatabilities of ± 5 μm are now achieved with the high-precision version.
The built-in linear recirculating ball bearings accommodate radial loads and load moments. Stopping vibrations are effectively suppressed and strokes with no external guide from 50 mm to 700 mm are available. A collision detection feature has also been integrated into this new series.
This series also features a line with a built-in controller under the product name RCP6S.
Radial cylinders in standard or wide sizes
The push rod version radial cylinder is equipped with a built-in linear guide and ball screw for transporting radial loads on the rod end. These axes can also accommodate a radial load offset from the rod center.
The main features and applications:
- Built-in linear recirculating ball bearings absorb radial loads and load moments.
- Vibrations on stopping are suppressed.
- Compact equipment without external guidance.
- For inserting, pressing or riveting workpieces.
- As a lifting device or unloader for workpieces.
Wide radial cylinder
Due to a broad base frame and highly rigid connecting rod of the wide radial cylinder can accommodate a maximum of four times the permissible torque on the rod end, compared to a standard radial cylinders.
With its high permissible dynamic torque, the radial cylinder can be used for tightening and stirring with high load torque.
High-resolution battery-less absolute encoder
Many slider axes are equipped as standard or optionally with a battery-less absolute encoder that no longer requires a battery for the saving of position data. Referencing drives, external home sensors or the regular replacement of batteries are thus consigned to the past.
