Are you looking for a replacement for your expensive hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders? Would you like an electric solution that is energy efficient, high speed and very precise in movement? This article and Ramco TV video will review the Tritex II servo based actuator from Exlar.
The Tritex II is an “all in one” linear actuator, that combines a mechanical actuator, along with the drive and servo for a complete stand alone solution.
While this article will focus on the linear actuator, the Tritex II package also offers a rotary servo motor. This will include the same options as as the Tritex II and can include integrated gearboxes for your high torque applications.Before we get into the specifics of the actuator let’s look at the mechanical structure.
There is not actually a servo coupled to the roller screw…the servo is actually built around the roller screw. Neodymium magnets are epoxied to the out casing so this is now your rotor. The stator is wound around the rotor. Now we have a motor. There is an encoder on the back side of the actuator which gives this actuator its extremely precise precision. The drive is on the top which is programmable via an easy to use software.
More and more companies today are thinking about energy savings and how to do processes more efficient and with less scrap. With the Exlar Tritex II you can do just that.
