There is growing market demand for electrical actuators as an alternative to hydraulic high force and speed cylinders. Hexelus has taken advantage of this trend with several applications of our Setec ISO125 actuators
The first solutions were made using mechanical screw jacks with ball screws. This was adequate for some apps but for others with radial forces, the additional forces could cause some unusual wear of ball screw nut, reducing lifetime of the screw jacks. The final proposal was for a 63x10mm ball screw ISO125 actuator with bevel gearbox and 3-phase motor with encoder and spring brake.
Combination of ball screw and bevel gear ensures a very high efficiency of system and has proven successful for the customer.
Unfortunately, the video is in Italian. The video is useful, though, because it does showcase Poggi's capabilities.
