IRWIN, PA — Parker’s Electromechanical Automation
Division, announces the addition of the powerful MPP motor options to the HPLA and HLE
configurables. Designed for the demanding applications found in today’s
high-performance servo systems, MPP motors offer lower inertia and higher
power, all in a smaller package than conventional motors.
The addition of these motors to the HPLA and HLE belt-driven product
configurables makes creating a complete system — from actuator to gearhead
to motor — easier than ever. The configurable option includes mounting
flanges and pinions for the MPP motors to be easily mounted in the field,
or customers can save time and have the motors mounted directly at Parker.
Parker still provides mounting hardware for thousands of different motor
models and manufacturers.
Along with this change in the motor-mounting options, Parker is proud to
announce a new feature of the HLE60 to match the HPLA product line feature
set. Customers who have ever had trouble tensioning a belt in a belt-driven
actuator will be pleased to learn that the HPLA and the entire HLE family
offer easy belt tensioning implemented at the idler end of the actuator.
This allows belt tensioning to be done without removing the load.
Maintenance time is reduced, and the machine will be up and running in no
time with this easy-to-tension design style. This feature, coupled with
the direct-mount gearbox design on the HPLA and the complete HLE family,
reduce overall cost of ownership by as much as 20%.
HPLA/HLE features include:
· Up to 50m for rack-and-pinion drive (HPLA180)
· Up to 20m for timing belt drive
· High speeds in practical applications of up to 5m/s
· High load-bearing capacity up to 1600kg
· Nominal drive torque up to 244Nm
· Nominal thrust force up to 5500N
· Repeatability up to ± 0.05mm
· High degree of mechanical efficiency
· Independent multiple carriages can be used on one linear actuator for
