Exlar FTP Series

The FTP160 is the second frame size of the high-force electric rod-style press actuators and is designed exclusively for press applications.

The Exlar FTP Series actuators allow machine builders to meet ever-increasing performance demands, while minimizing maintenance and downtime. Based on planetary roller screw technology, the FTP Series offers very high force in a very small package.


With continuous force ratings to 200 kN (45,000 lbf) pressing, and speeds to 401 mm/sec (15.8 in/sec), and stroke lengths from 150 mm (6 inches) to 900 mm (36 inches), the FTP Series can be applied across a wide range of pressing applications.

The FTP160 features include:

  • High capacity planetary roller screws offering up to 15X the life and significantly higher shock load resistance than a comparably sized ball screw
  • IP65S (min.) environmental protection
  • Idler pulley design greatly simplifies motor installation and belt tensioning / maintenance
  • Rigid circular front mounting flange simplifies installation
