Tolomatic RSX128 actuator rated up to 50,000 pounds of force (222.4 kN)
Tolomatic has expanded its extreme-force electric actuator family to include the RSX128 actuator, rated up to 50,000 pounds of force (222.4 kN). Designed for replacing hydraulic cylinders and designed for 100 percent duty cycle, the RSX actuator features Tolomatic’s precision-ground planetary roller screws. Additional frame sizes include the RSX080 which provides 18,000 lbf/80kN and the RSX096P press-model which is optimized to provide extend force up to (40,000 lbf/178 kN). For all models, IP65 is standard and IP67 is optional. A modified food-grade version is also available as a custom design with food-grade white epoxy coating and stainless-steel components. The entire RSX actuator family’s construction includes tie-rods and Type III hard-coat anodized aluminum housings. A standard internal anti-rotate feature prevents the rod from rotating without external guidance.
