Tolomatic’s new RSX hydraulic-class electric linear rod actuator meets the need for extreme forces and is a good choice for replacing hydraulic cylinders. Designed and tested for 100% duty cycle, the actuator’s roller-screw drive ensures long, consistent life. Applications include pressing, punching, stamping; riveting, fastening, joining; injection molding; and sawmilling.
The Tolomatic RSX family of hydraulic-class actuators will be capable of 50,000 lbf (222.5 kN) or higher. The initial offering, the RSX-096, is capable of 30,000 lbf. The actuator’s heavy duty construction includes tie-rods and Type III hardcoat anodized aluminum or zinc-plated steel. A standard anti-rotate feature prevents the rod from rotating without external guidance. Rated IP67, the actuator resists water from a light washdown and dust from outdoor environments. The RSX actuator is also designed and rated for extreme conditions including cold-weather operation.
Tolomatic’s “Your Motor Here” feature allows for servo motors and gearboxes up to 215-mm frame size. Additional features include an access port for re-lubrication to maximize service life and a breather/purge port to prevent ingress into the actuator.
