Electromechanical Cylinder EMC-HP (High Power)

Nov. 30, 2022
The EMC-HP uses Bosch Rexroth’s planetary screw assembly to meet extremely high standards in terms of control accuracy and dynamics.

The electromechanical cylinders (EMCs) are available in a high-force, high-precision, low-maintenance version - the EMC-HP. Designed for heavy loads up to 100 kN, the actuators are robust, compact, and low maintenance. Based on the reliable planetary screw drive, users will benefit from impressive continuous power even under harsh conditions. This is thanks to both the new oil-bath lubrication and the optional water cooling directly on the screw itself.


The EMC-HPs are currently in three sizes 115, 130, and 160 (housing diameter) with protection class IP65 and are suitable for a range of different heavy-duty applications with strokes of up to 59.1 in. (1,500 mm): from pressing, forming, and riveting to tensioning, positioning, and testing.


Each EMC-HP uses Bosch Rexroth’s tried-and-tested planetary screw assembly in order to be able to meet extremely high standards in terms of control accuracy and dynamics. With a dynamic load capacity (Cdyn) of up to 189.5 kN, high loads can be quickly and accurately moved as part of an energy-efficient process even in complex motion profiles – with axial forces of up to 100 kN and at speeds of up to 0.83 m/s.


The robust and low-maintenance design of the planetary screw assembly also has a positive impact on lubrication intervals. Additionally, the seals can be replaced in just a few steps if required.


With their compact dimensions, lightweight aluminum housing, and single-cable solutions in connection with most drives, the EMC-HPs can be quickly and easily integrated into machine tools on site.
