CPSM image
Servo pillar CPSM is the first telescopic pillar with servo-power for industrial applications. They are ideal solution to combine strong guiding functions with linear movements. The robust, manually adjusted and virtually backlash-free aluminum extrusions are able to carry high excentric loads in push and pull directions.

The pillars are equipped with brushless DC or servo Motors which provides enough power to lift and lower heavy weights with high speed. Of course, SKF also supports the usage of preferred motors with a customizable motor interface. Optional brakes and damping elements are key features that allow an effective usage in heavy duty industrial applications.

Features and benefits

  • High dynamic servo or brushless DC motor for high speed up to 100 mm/s
  • High performance ball screw for high load capacity up to 5 kN
  • Extruded aluminum profiles for a very robust design
  • Manually adjusted gliders for very high stiffness and high excentric loads
  • Encoder system of the motor and high quality gearbox enable high positioning accuracy and high repeatability (0,1 mm)
  • High nominal power of the motor allows for high duty cycle of the pillar
  • Customized motor adapter for highest flexibility (max. motor diameter 90 mm)
  • Customized top and bottom plate to fit most of the applications
  • Customized aluminum profile color (anodized) to fit application design needs
  • Optional brake to release the motor when it’s in position and to increase the duty cycle
  • Preloaded bearing arrangement also for ceiling mount applications (only available without damping system)
