Electric actuators provide smooth and precise linear motion

15 October 2009

The EMA series of industrial electric linear actuators from Power Jacks deliver powerful, smooth and precise linear motion in a compact unit for low to medium duty applications (loads up to 10kN). The actuators feature a precision spiroid gear set that delivers superior performance compared with a similarly sized worm gear set.

Depending on the performance required, the gear set drives either a machine screw or ball screw to move the ram. A wide range of options is available, including clutches and limit switches, that will suit most applications. All actuators are driven by electric motors, ac or dc. The actuator design can be customised by Power Jacks, if required.

Features at-a-glance:
 Load rating up to 10kN
 Linear Speed up to 5,500mm/min
 Stroke up to 2,000mm
Motors available in 3 phase ac, 1 phase ac or dc designs.
 Three designs available for intermittent, continuous and high-speed continuous duty.
 Compact and precision spiroid gear set.
 Aluminium gearbox for reduced unit weight.
 Machine Screw drive for low duty applications
 Ball Screw drive for medium to high duty applications.
 Choice of ram end fixings – clevis end, fork end, top plate, threaded end.
 Gearbox mounting can be clevis end or trunnion mounts at standard or 90° orientation.
 Clutch overload protection option.
 Controllable for synchronisation.
 Precise repeatability of positioning.
 Long life and low maintenance and running costs.
 Low power consumption and running costs.
 Clean operation and low noise.
 Cost effective package.

Catalogues, maintenance manuals, 2D drawings and 3D CAD models are available from the Power Jacks website.
