SEW-Eurodrive has launched a new range of electric servomotor-driven actuating cylinders—the CMS electric cylinder series.
Presenting a high-performance alternative to pneumatic and hydraulic actuating cylinders, SEW-Eurodrive’s CMS electric cylinder
series provides accurate linear positioning for a wide range of single-plane motion applications.
Comprising four different models, the new CMS series features a synchronous servomotor with integrated ball screw drive to
generate linear motion, delivering a peak feed force of 20,000N at a maximum speed of 500mm/s. With a stroke length of up
to 350mm, the CMS series is designed for applications where short accurate linear strokes are required, such as those involving
a pushing, clamping or pressing action.
According to SEW-Eurodrive Strategic Marketing and Product Manager, Darren Klonowski, the new CMS series presents a number
of advantages when compared with pneumatic and hydraulic actuating cylinders. “Precise piston positioning, and steady acceleration
and speed profiles are easily achieved with the CMS series,” he said. “This, plus its scalable feed force capabilities, make
the CMS series ideal for applications that require high levels of accuracy and flexibility. Furthermore, installation and
maintenance costs associated with pneumatic and hydraulic systems are reduced or completely eliminated.”
Inherently energy saving, low maintenance and low-noise, the new CMS electric cylinder series is available with additional
options such as electric holding brake and absolute feedback system configurations. A variety of mounting and spindle pitch
alternatives are also available, further extending SEW-Eurodrive’s modular drive system offering.
