CASM electric cylinders from SKF cut energy costs by 90%
2012 July 13, 09:00 GMT
SKF, the knowledge engineering company, is to launch a powerful range of CASM electric cylinders to provide even greater service to engineers across a wide variety of applications. Coupled with a motor to form an electromechanical device, the speed and strength of linear movement provided by CASM electric cylinders can significantly outstrip the efficiency of pneumatic cylinders to realise energy savings of 90%.
Along with the potential energy savings, the modular construction of CASM electric cylinders offers a flexibility that reduces design and programming costs, with availability in different sizes and stroke lengths to fit the widest range of applications. The efficiency of CASM electric cylinders is enhanced by the use of high-grade materials and a sealing system protected to IP54S, maintaining strong performance even under aggressive conditions, while the low-level backlash design of the unit enables positioning precision of up to ±0.01mm.
CASM electric cylinders are compatible with many motors and can be supplied as a complete linear solution mounted with a motor, or integrated with existing equipment using an adapter to suit your motor type.
The flexibility, robustness, accuracy and efficiency of CASM electric cylinders all add up to a highly cost-effective means of providing high-speed, heavy lifting or precision motion in many applications, while producing less contamination and noise than pneumatic cylinders. With easy options for integration and fast assembly, and backed by worldwide SKF service and support, CASM electric cylinders represent a secure plant investment.
