Electromechanical heavy-duty cylinders

Ready to install, electromechanical heavy-duty cylinders from Rexroth enable freely programmable motion sequences, even at high forces. The units are suitable for machinery and equipment as well as for outdoor use. Users can seamlessly integrate them for intelligent energy management, thus reducing power consumption and CO2 emissions. Force, position, and speed can be freely parameterized by the user and adapted at all times to new tasks via the drive system. Without an additional position sensor, the EMC-HD achieves a repeatability accuracy of up to ±0.01 mm (±0.0004 in), and it does so for any number of freely selectable positions within the travel range of up to 1200 mm (47.2 in).
