Electromechanical Cylinder


  • High energy efficiency and low negative environmental impact (no risk of leaks)
  • Straightforward, compact and robust structural design for space-saving integration in machine concepts and usage even in harsh environmental conditions
  • Complete building system with great variability for high flexibility in a broad range of applications
  • Precise positioning, high dynamics, powerful drive and a long service life thanks to precision Rexroth planetary screw assemblies
  • Smart, service-oriented, freely programmable drive system allows the realization of complex travel profiles (parameters for force, position and travel speed can be set as required over the complete working travel range)

For positioning loads weighing tons with absolute precision on micrometers, powerful pressing, joining or closing and unrestricted motion sequence variation: The new electromechanical cylinders EMC Heavy Power (EMC-HP) from Rexroth exploit the advantages of modern control technology even at high forces.

The high rigidity of the units allows precise positioning in addition to high performance and dynamics. Users can seamlessly integrate the cylinders into intelligent energy management and in this way reduce power consumption and CO2 emissions.

Parameters for force, position and travel speed can be set as required and flexibly adapted to new tasks at any time via the drive system. The electromechanical cylinders EMC-HP for heavy loads transmit the motor movement via ball or planetary screw assemblies depending on the dynamics and force requirements. Available in various sizes and leads, the highly precise Rexroth screw drives cover a wide range of needs in a cost-effective manner. Rexroth offers the EMC-HP as ready-to-install, purely mechanical axes and as a complete system with a choice of precisely matched gear units, servo motors and drive controllers.
