The Simplified Motion Series axes are electromechanical actuators designed for simple and easy wiring, commissioning, and operation, like pneumatic actuators. Movements include end-to-end positioning and pressing/clamping. Each SMS axis consist of an electromechanical actuator mounted to an integrated motor to reduce setup time and cabinet space requirements. And the SMS axes include a wide range of actuator families, with linear and rotary options, precision and dynamic options, and short or long stroke variants, which can meet a diverse set of application needs.
Basic profile for movement between two end positions – with adjustable speeds in each direction.
Expanded motion profile for simplified press-fitting and clamping functions – adjustable speed and force settings.
Available basic functions can be set via buttons on the side of the integrated motor or via IO-Link®:
Additional, extended functions are available via IO-Link®:
1) During commissioning, all relevant parameters can be set directly on the integrated drive. The parameters can be set easily and intuitively:
2) Simple electrical connection via M12 plug design
Electric cylinder EPCS
The EPCS is suitable for single linear movements in every mounting position and its smoothly running ball screw allows precise and rapid positioning. As an extremely cost-effective complete solution, the electric cylinder is ideally suited for applications such as positioning or clamping, distribution, sorting or ejection, and in handling systems as a simple Z-axis.
Compact electric cylinder EPCE
The EPCE electric cylinder is designed for tight spaces. Its unique design mounts the motor above the actuator to reduce space versus a traditional electric cylinder. And the use of a toothed belt to move the piston rod means the EPCE can offer cycle times as short as 150 ms in each direction.
Ball screw axis and toothed belt axis ELGS
Extremely compact and cost-effective ball screw axis ELGS-BS with precise, resilient recirculating ball bearing guide for the slide and powerful ball screw drive.
Extremely cost-effective and durable toothed belt axis ELGS-TB with precise, resilient recirculating ball bearing guide for the slide in a compact design – especially as a main axis in handling systems.
Mini slide EGSS
Cost-effective and resilient EGSS with smooth ball screw operation for vertical Z-movements or individual, guided linear movements in every mounting position.
The internal linear guide absorbs transverse loads and provides very good resistance to torsion at high torques.
Toothed belt axis ELGE
The toothed belt axis offers very good running performance thanks to its recirculating ball bearing guide ELGE-TB. As an attractively priced complete solution with a cost-optimised design, it is an ideal and economical choice for very simple tasks with comparatively low requirements for mechanical load, dynamic response and precision, as well as for the environment.
Rotary drive ERMS
As a cost-effective solution package, the rotary drive ERMS is ideal for simple swivel tasks. It has a rotary plate with sturdy, precise and backlash-free ball bearings so it can absorb transverse loads and torques.
