Tolomatic: Food-grade servo actuator

May 5, 2017
The Tolomatic IMA electric linear actuator, the company's most powerful integrated servo motor rod actuator, is now available with a food-grade white epoxy coating and stainless steel components for washdown applications in the food and beverage industry.

The compact, durable IMA actuator series integrates a servomotor and a ball or roller screw for long service life to meet many different budgets. The IMA actuator's unique integrated motor design is well suited for applications such as slicing control, pressing, valve control and volumetric filling.

Available in four sizes, the IMA line of integrated servo motor rod actuators features stroke lengths from three to 18 in. (76.2 to 457.2 mm) and peak thrusts from 200 to 6,875 lbs. force (890 to 30,594 N) at speeds up to 24 in./sec. (610 mm/sec).

With its integrated servomotor, the IMA actuator also is shorter for a given stroke length than other types of electric rod actuators. Its patent pending design allows for easy re-lubrication of the screw without disassembly, increasing service life compared to other rod actuators without this feature. The IMA offers seamless integration with Rockwell Automation Kinetix platform with approved custom motor files (CMF/BLB) for the PLC and integrated motor actuator.
