A pneumatic cylinder was being used to move the tub doors on a walk-in tub enclosure but a noisy air compressor made the bathing experience undesirable. The customer was looking for an electric system that would provide smooth operation, little noise, no maintenance and reliable performance.
Tolomatic worked with the customer’s engineering team to develop and provide a custom belt drive actuator that met the size envelop of the bathtub enclosure, speed, load and reliability requirements.
