Tolomatic adds extreme-force capability to electric linear rod actuator offering

Tolomatic's new electric linear rod actuator is more efficient, accurate and flexible compared to hydraulic cylinders--and without the messy leaks or noisy operation of hydraulics.

HAMEL, Minn. - Tolomatic's new RSX hydraulic-class electric linear rod actuator meets the need for extreme forces and is an ideal choice for replacing hydraulic cylinders. Designed and tested for 100% duty cycle, the actuator's roller-screw drive ensures long, consistent life. Applications include pressing, punching, stamping; riveting, fastening, joining; injection molding; and sawmilling.


The Tolomatic RSX family of hydraulic-class actuators will be capable of 50,000 lbf/222.5 kN or higher. The initial offering, the RSX-096, is capable of 30,000 lbf. The actuator's heavy duty construction includes tie-rods and Type III hardcoat anodized aluminum or zinc-plated steel. A standard anti-rotate feature prevents the rod from rotating without external guidance. Rated IP67, the actuator resists water from a light washdown and dust from outdoor environments. The RSX actuator is also designed and rated for extreme conditions including cold-weather operation.

Tolomatic's "Your Motor Here" feature allows for servo motors and gearboxes up to 215mm frame size. Additional features include an access port for re-lubrication to maximize service life and a breather/purge port to prevent ingress into the actuator.
