The SKF CASM-100 electromechanical actuators from SKF Motion Technologies, Inc. (Lansdale, PA) have been uniquely engineered with a modular design enabling tailored solutions for a wide range of industrial linear movement and positioning applications. Various modules providing choices among motor types, gearboxes, ball screws or roller screws, and accessories allow for custom combinations of components ideally suited for an application. Standardized interfaces connect the different components to each other for ideal operation of actuators in service. Benefits include:
- Optimized performance in speed, load capacity, and positioning accuracy.
- Virtually maintenance free performance.
- A more environmentally friendly and energy-efficient solution compared with hydraulic and pneumatic systems. In addition, they use up to 80% less energy than pneumatic cylinders and 50% less energy than hydraulic alternatives and eliminate any need for constantly running compressors, hoses and other components.
- A linear design that can withstand even the harshest operating conditions, and manufactured from high-grade materials, boasting a long service life and offering superior precision and repeatability.
Applications include robotic cells, handling and packaging machines, sorting systems, manufacturing, and cutting and assembly machines, among many others across industries where reliable, accurate, and precise repetitive motion is required.
