ELECTRIC LINEAR ACTUATORS WITH BREAKTHROUGH PERFORMANCE

The new Thomson PC-series electric linear actuators from Treotham Automation, offer the highest precision and power density of any actuator in its class.

Suitable for continuous duty applications, the actuator has a compact and efficient design with many benefits over traditional pneumatic linear actuators.

It offers significantly lower energy costs, lower maintenance, simpler machine designs and higher overall performance.

Traditional pneumatic actuator systems operate continuously, usually at 10-15% efficiency and have high maintenance costs of compressors and air leaks.

The high efficiency ball screws in the new Thomson PC series offer efficiencies of over 80% and only use energy when needed.

In many applications, converting from pneumatic to electric actuators can generate energy savings, which exceed the cost of the new actuator in just one year.

Thomson actuators offer new flexibility for machine designers who often need to change set-ups to run different processes or products.

With electric actuators changing velocity profiles or end stops can be done quickly, whilst maximising productivity and reducing waste.

The PC series are suitable for food processing and packaging, material handling and factory automation applications where high reliability, accuracy and 100% duty cycle operation is required.

They have an IP65 rating and smooth exterior profile, making them ideal for wash down applications.

The actuators are available in small sizes of 25, 32 and 40 and have square sizes of only 34mm, 45mm and 55mm respectively, but deliver as high as 6000N of thrust force.

They feature stroke lengths of up to 1200mm, which are twice as long as most competitive electric actuators with similar frame sizes.

They also conform to ISO 15552 for mechanical interfaces and adapters, making machine upgrades fast and simple.

The user can easily mount their own motor using the Thomson RediMount systems for a fast and reliable installation with guaranteed alignment.
