Electromechanical Cylinder


When it comes to actuators electromechanical drive solutions become more and more important compared to fluid power driven technologies. The Electromechanical Cylinders from Rexroth are a powerful alternative to pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders, while providing significant benefits in terms of energy efficiency, a prime goal in engineering today.

They make the benefits of advanced control technology available, even at high forces. Force, position and speed can be freely parameterized by the user and flexibly adapted at all times to new tasks via the drive system.

All important components come from Rexroth's service-proven range of standard products.

The mechanics of the Electromechanical Cylinders is based on established planetary or ball screw assemblies available in various sizes and leads.

Rexroth offers the cylinders both as finished, purely mechanical axes as well as a complete system with precisely matched gears, servo motors and controllers from the IndraDrive product line.
