Rexroth's second generation EMC electromechanical cylinder implements hygienic design.
With their hygienic design and IP65 protection class, Rexroth’s EMC electromechanical cylinders are suitable for applications with frequent cleaning cycles, such as those in the food industry. The new size EMC100-XC-2 increases the power density for feeding forces of up to 56 kN. An optional force sensor allows decentralized process controls without a higher-level control system. The ready-to-install drive units consist of anodized aluminum profiles in ISO standard dimensions, with an integrated ball screw drive. They cover variable-length strokes of up to 1,500 mm. Rexroth has implemented the principle of hygienic design in the cylinder body. There are no recesses or slots in which dirt can be trapped. The screws on the end face can be optionally sealed. Together with the version in IP65, which is also valid for the timing belt side drive, the EMC withstands frequent cleaning cycles and spray water.
