RSX096 Press Electric Linear Actuators

Designed for Pressing, Punching, Clinching, Joining & other applications requiring extreme force

The RSX Press is an extreme force electric linear actuator that is more efficient, reliable and precise than hydraulic cylinders used in pressing (extend force) applications.  Tolomatic precision ground planetary roller screws are utilized to achieve long life and precision. The RSX platform is designed and tested for long life and reliable performance in demanding force and duty cycle applications.

RSX extreme force electric linear actuators offer these features:

  • Forces up to 40,000 lbf (177.93 kN) in the extend direction
  • Upgrades: Oversized tie-rods, optimized bearing system & higher strength front flange
  • Planetary roller screw driven for long consistent life
  • Type III hard coat anodized aluminum housing to withstand demanding environments
  • Standard thrust rod anti-rotation feature
  • IP67 option to protect against dust and water ingress
  • Compatible with servo motors and gearboxes up to 215mm frame sizes
  • Oil filled options for high speed / high duty cycle applications
