Ewellix additions to CASM actuator line designed as replacement for mobile hydraulic power.
Ewellix has announced it will add electric actuators to its CASM line, specifically designed for use in mobile applications. The first products, due later this year, will include models with 3 tons and 15 tons lift capacities, the company says. The 5T actuator (CASM-100) presents 10 kW peak power output at a cross section of 105 x 105 mm of the linear unit. The 3T model will offer 3.6 kW peak power output, at the cross section of 80 x 80mm, and the 15T actuator presents a 17kW peak power output at 130 x 130 mm. Depending on the configuration, the line will achieve maximum linear speeds (unloaded) up to 300mm/sec, at accelerations of up to 6 m/sec and stroke lengths of up to 2m. The line will also offer a choice of ballscrew or roller-screw drive mechanisms, different motors and either parallel or in-line gearbox options.
