Tolomatic adds capacity to high-force electric actuator family

Tolomatic high-force electric actuators are more efficient, accurate and flexible compared to hydraulic cylinders--and without the messy leaks or noisy operation of hydraulics.

HAMEL, Minn. - The Tolomatic RSX080 actuator--the latest addition to the Tolomatic family of high-force electric actuators--is an economical actuator solution with forces up to 18,000 lbf (80 kN) ideal for replacing hydraulic cylinders. Designed and tested for 100% duty cycle, the RSX080 actuator is roller-screw driven for long, consistent life in demanding environments. Applications include pressing, punching, stamping, riveting, fastening, joining, injection molding, and sawmilling


In addition to the RSX080, Tolomatic high-force linear actuator solutions include the RSX096 actuator (30,000 lbf; 130 kN). The heavy duty construction of both models includes tie rods and Type III hard-coat anodized aluminum or zinc-plated steel. A standard anti-rotate feature prevents the rod from rotating without external guidance.

Rated IP65 with an IP67 option, 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. A food-grade version, designed for volumetric filling and other high-force food-and-beverage applications, is made of 316 stainless steel and food-grade white epoxy to meet USDA specifications.

"The RSX080 is a smaller version of the RSX096, offering the same features, benefits and applications, but at a reduced force and cost to meet specification needs," said Aaron Dietrich, Director of Marketing, Tolomatic.

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. RSX actuators are built-to-order and shipped with an industry leading 4-week delivery schedule.
