RoboCylinder & IntelligentActuator Slider Types
Slider type actuators are mainly used for transporting and positioning workpieces horizontally or vertically. On request, they can also be supplied without an electric drive unit.
The RoboCylinder series includes standard and wide slider types whose base frames have increased bending strength. In addition to the standard versions, many slider types are also available for the cleanroom and as IP-protected models.
For particularly high specifications, there is the IntelligentActuator product line (single-axis robots). They meet significantly higher requirements in terms of payload, speed and stroke length.
The series has recently been expanded to include wide extra-long types with ultra-high speed and a maximum payload capacity of up to 400 kg.
Standard and wide RCP6 slider types
The latest RoboCylinder slider types from the RCP6 series are characterised by their mechanical stability and positioning accuracy. The latter is ± 5 μm for the high-precision model, for example. This series also features a line with a built-in controller under the product name RCP6S.
RCP6-WSA: Wide slider types
The wide RCP6 slider types absorb very high moments in their base frame in the directions of deflection and and torsion. These mechanical advantages come into play especially with larger overhangs, such as cartesian systems and similar structures.
The higher maximum load capacity is also a big plus for many applications. These linear cylinders are available with stroke lengths between 50 mm and 1,100 mm.
IntelligentActuator ISB Series
The IntelligentActuator ISB series is based on aluminium profiles with a compact rectangular cross-section. They are available in three model sizes S, M and L.
The linear actuators with 230 V servo motor move at a maximum speed of 2.5 m/s and accelerate at a maximum permitted 1.2 G. The repeat accuracy is up to ± 5 µm.
Wide range of model options
All ISB slider types can be optionally configured with a brake, ball chain system, creep sensor, limit switch and much more. The matching 1- to 8-axis program controllers of the SEL series cover a power range from 60 to 2400 W in eight gradations.
High-rigidity steel-base actuator: SSPA
The SSPA series has an integrated design with a highly rigid steel profile.
Like the normal linear axes with ball screw, the polished running tracks of the guide are located on the inner surfaces of the U-shaped profile. As a result, the axis has an extremely compact design and is very rigid.
NSA: The very latest rotating nut type actuator
The NSA series are the very latest rotatin nut type actuators with battery-free absolute encoder. They are predestined for long stroke movements up to 3000 mm with constant high speed and acceleration.
The linear slider movement for these actuators is created by rotating the nut rather than the ball screw with a motor. Since the ball screw does not rotate, it is capable of high-speed movement even with a long stroke without being affected by resonance, shortening the cycle time.
