A mechatronic design tool will help you size a motion system within a single platform. Finally, some companies are cooperating together to make it easier to design a whole system.
Tolomatic and Rockwell Automation have announced that you will be able to specify electric rod actuators and rodless electro-mechanical actuators on Rockwell’s Motion Analyzer web-based software, making it easier to specify, design and validate complete motion control systems that use Allen Bradley controls.
The mechatronic design tool, with its cloud-based architecture, promotes collaboration among mechanical, electrical and controls engineers to create prototype machines. The Motion Analyzer combines application requirements with product ratings and specifications to provide solutions that exactly meet needs.
Tolomatic’s featured electric rod actuators (ERD, RSA) can meet most budget and performance requirements. ERD electric actuators are a low-cost alternative to pneumatic cylinders. The RSA high-thrust actuator offers mounting flexibility. Tolomatic rodless electro-mechanical actuators (MXE, MXB) are available in both screw- and belt-drive designs and a variety of bearing styles and options. Products can be built-to-order in 15 days or less.
