Electric cylinder CASM-100
SKF developed an innovative modular electric cylinder platform to address most of the applications in the automation and heavy machinery industries, mainly replacing hydraulic solutions. In this new design, instead of limiting the selection on the “linear unit - gearbox – motor” modules only, SKF takes a decisive step further. The modularity has been extended to the base component level. Within each module, the customer can select the components inside to build a custom-like solution as standard with the best performance/cost ratio.

To facilitate customers in defining their own actuator, SKF has released an online configurator – Actuator Select - on, where you can configure your optimal CASM-100 cylinder in just a few steps.

To meet any space and performance requirements, SKF provides inline and parallel gearboxes as well as AC and servomotors. All motors are equipped with specific adapters to keep the same mechanical interface, independent of the selected motor type.

This standardized interface allows customers to also attach their own preferred motor. This possibility shortens the commissioning of the application, since customers are already familiar with their specific motor and drives.
