What are Electromechanical Cylinders


Electromical CylinderThe mechanical system of the electromechanical cylinder is configured on proved planetary or ball screw assembling in a variety of lead combinations and diameter. There is a screw drive which changes the torque into linear motion with high efficiency of mechanical energy. During the process, the piston rod attached to the screw driver nut is retracted and extended. Both the piston rod and the nut are guided within the housing and cannot do any twisting movement. There are optional limit switches that prevent the operating cylinder from damage. There is also a reference point switch which is present for the use of incremental encoder systems. Due to grease lubrication, maintenance required by electromechanical cylinder at long intervals.

Structural design advantages of electromechanical cylinders

  • High-precision ball screw drives which are used for high performance with maximum cost-effectiveness
  • Complete ready-to-install and go system available for simpler construction and assembly.
  • The smart and freely programmable drive system allows the adjustment in accordance to force, speed and position of travel.
  • Optimized lubrication concept: there is an optional connection to a central lubrication system, which reduces downtime.
  • Well sealed against water and dirt from outside and lubrication leakage from inside the cylinder.
  • Hygienic design- EMC models provide high resistance to chemicals and cleaning agents.  

Due to their specific characteristics, EMCs has many advantages in terms of dynamics, accuracy and controllability, due to which it not only helps to reduce cycle times but also to increase quality and flexibility in the manufacturing process. Their compact design renders them the ideal candidature for use in tight confined spaces. The application areas are:

  • Joining technology
  • Woodworking machines
  • Testing equipment and laboratory applications
  • Thermoforming
  • Food processing machines
  • Servo presses and forming technology
  • Injection molding and blow molding machines
  • Assembly and handling technology
  • Packaging machines and conveyor systems
  • Special-purpose machines
