IMA Food Grade Servo Actuator

The IMA food grade servo linear actuator offers sanitary protection in wash-down applications.

IMA food grade servo actuators offer a white epoxy food grade coating, food grade grease and are available with stainless-steel fasteners, rod and rod ends. Using the same integrated servo motor design as IMA servo linear actuators they offer a compact footprint.  Available in both ball and roller screw configurations, IMA food grade servo actuators provide forces up to  30.6 kN (6875 lbf) even in high duty cycle applications. The standard servo motor is available with many feedback types to integrate with most servo drives. 

Supports Third Party Drive Integration

Tolomatic’s integrated motor products (IMA & IMAS) support integration with a wide range manufacturers’ servo drives.  Check back often to our Drive Integration Resource page as we will continue to add supporting documentation and motor files.  Tolomatic also supports seamless integration with Rockwell Automation through the use of approved custom motor files (CMF) and as a Technology and Encompass partner.  See our Tech Notes on using the CMF import tool and interfacing the IMA actuator and absolute encoder with Rockwell Automation servo drives.

Get sanitary protection and long service life with IMA food grade servo actuators

Tolomatic’s patented re-lubrication design offers easy re-lubrication with food grade grease and do not require disassembly for reduced maintenance.

Tolomatic IMA food grade servo actuator design eliminates:

  • Contamination from air or oil
  • Hydraulic systems
  • Pneumatic systems
  • Forced air or water cooling
  • Need for multiple vendors
  • Unneeded assembly labor
  • Motor couplers, adapters, timing belts and gear boxes
