Linear Actuators Get Integrated

Description

In order to simplify ordering and reduce the need for additional validation after installation, PC Series precision linear actuators are now offered with an optional, pre-mounted and pre-tested servo motors. The bundled system increases reliability and reduces the total cost of owning and operating an actuator system.


Pre-installing and configuring Kollmorgen AKM servo motors complements the industry leading capabilities of the PC Series actuators, which have been demonstrated to provide four times the travel life of any other actuator of comparable size available today, double the power and load density, 25 percent better thrust force and side load handling, as well as higher speed and longer stroke length.

Benefits:

  • Optimum motor matching: All Thomson PC Series linear actuators can be ordered with a broad selection of Kollmorgen AKM servo motors, fully-integrated and tested.
  • Easier sizing and selection: Because Thomson has already identified and tested a wide range of configurability options and has provided a tool that helps map applications to motor sizing, it takes less than 15 minutes to find the right combination. Downloadable and configurable 3D CAD models contribute to the solution. All parameters, including length, motor orientation, mounting adapters and screw leads, are fully customizable.
  • Fast and reliable installation: Once the actuator/motor combination is selected, the unique Thomson RediMount motor mounting system speeds implementation by reducing the time spent aligning the actuator and motor. Should you prefer using your own motor make and type, you still reap the benefits of the RediMount system, giving you the ability to seamlessly fit more than 600 different motor alternatives to the PC Series actuators. ISO standard mounting interfaces are also available to facilitate upgrades from pneumatic technologies.
  • Reduced maintenance: Pre-aligning the system extends life by compensating for system alignment, complementing the maintenance benefits already gained from the PC Series' IP65 rating and corrosion resistance.
