What is an electric cylinder

With the increasing requirements of factory automation, electric cylinders came into being. The so-called electric cylinder (also known as electric actuator) is to use various motors (such as servo motors, stepper motors, motors) to drive various screws (such as sliding screws, ball screws) to rotate, convert them into linear motion through nuts, and push The slide table performs reciprocating linear motions like cylinders along various guide rails (such as sliding guide rails, ball guide rails, and high-rigidity linear guide rails).

Image result for electric cylinder An electric actuator is a mechanical device used to convert electricity into kinetic energy in either a single linear or rotary motion. It automates damper or valve in order to increase process efficiency and complexity.

Advantages of electric cylinders High precision: The electric cylinder is connected to the control system such as the host computer to realize high-precision motion control. The control accuracy can easily reach 0.02mm, the electric cylinder can be used in harsh environments without failure, and the protection level can reach IP66. 2. Super long service life: electric drive, completely relieve the trouble of air leakage, and provide super long service life. 3. Low noise and low vibration: electronic buffering and braking control at the end, without any impact, extremely low noise and vibration, reduce the impact on the overall equipment, and improve production efficiency. 4. High speed: the fastest 6m/s, the highest acceleration of 10g, extremely high response speed, can provide long service life even under high speed operation 5. Low-cost maintenance: The electric cylinder only needs regular grease injection and lubrication when working in a complex environment, and no wearing parts need to be maintained and replaced, which will reduce a lot of after-sales service costs compared with hydraulic systems and pneumatic systems. 6. Environmental protection and energy saving: the current environment is more environmentally friendly, more energy-saving and cleaner, and it is easy to connect with PLC and other control systems to achieve high-precision motion control. Disadvantages of electric cylinders: 1. The impact load will affect the lead screw or bearing of the electric cylinder, which may affect the performance of the entire system. And can cause difficulty maintaining the locked position or have clearance issues. 2. Electric cylinders cannot withstand radial forces, but can only act on axial loads. At present, most electric cylinders on the market are light-loaded and used in the automation industry, while heavy-duty ones need to consider too many factors, so It restricts the development of electric cylinders in the heavy-duty industry.
