Electric Actuator EGC Toothed Belt and Ball Screw

Feb. 6, 2009
Festo announces the addition of the Electric Actuator EGC to the family of electromechanical actuators. 

The EGC is designed for high dynamic speeds and high rigidity. This modular actuator can be used as an individual component adapted to third-party motors or as a complete system provided by one source – Festo.

Broad Range of Options

  • Toothed belt or ball screw actuator
  • Different screw pitches available
  • Sizes 70, 80, 120, 185 (ball screw)
  • Sizes 50, 70, 80, 120, 185 (toothed belt)


Performance Highlights

  • High speeds and feed forces
  • High loads and torques
  • Maximum rigidity


In addition to these impressive features, the EGC offers an excellent price-performance ratio. Due to the high performance and rigidity of the EGC, a smaller size actuator can be used to save both space and costs.
