Food-grade Servo Actuator
By Design Engineering staffMotion Control Machine Building
Tolomatic IMA linear actuator designed for sanitary washdown environments.
Tolomatic announced that it’s IMA electric integrated servo motor rod actuator is now available with a food-grade white epoxy coating and stainless steel components for washdown applications. Available in four sizes, the IMA line features stroke lengths from three to 18 inches (76.2 to 457.2mm) and peak thrusts from 200 to 6,875 pounds force (890 to 30,594N) at speeds up to 24 inches per second (610mm/sec). The series integrates with the Rockwell Automation Kinetix platform with approved custom motor files (CMF/BLB) for the PLC and integrated motor actuator. The series features a hollow-core rotor design that allows the nut of the screw to pass inside the rotor. In addition, the motor features skewed stator windings to minimize cogging of the motor and provide more efficient motion.
