SKF is bringing electromechanical performance to new industries and users due to its Light ElectroMechanical Cylinder (LEMC) range of modular industrial actuators.
The new cylinders are based on a modular design, which increases the options available to the user while reducing both cost and manufacturing lead time. The units are available in two sizes – 21mm diameter screw for axial loads of up to 40kN, and 30mm diameter screw of axial loads of up to 80 kN – with stroke lengths of 100mm to 600mm (21mm screw) or 800mm (30mm screw). Depending on the chosen configuration, they can operate at linear speeds of up to 1000mm/s and accelerations of up to 12 m/s2.
