Emerson announces the introduction of its new Aventics Servo Profile Advanced (SPRA) series electric actuators, a line of precision piston rod actuators with very high repeatability.
While typical electric actuators have only a few screw designs, the SPRA series actuators offer three screw technologies. These include a precision ball screw that provides exceptional durability and accuracy for applications requiring optimum quality or maximum throughput, a cost-effective lead screw, and roller screws for precision, speed, and heavy loads.
This versatile line of rod-style cylinders enables users in the automotive, food and beverage, packaging, and life science industries to configure electric actuators to meet demanding application requirements such as improved sustainability or efficiency, rather than having to make do with standard features that only come close to meeting the application requirements.
"With four sizes and multiple mounting styles, Aventics Series SPRA electric actuators represent cost-effective, high-performance solutions that address most machine automation applications," said Linda Schwartzen, director of product marketing for Emerson Aventics' actuator division. "Conformance to ISO 15552 standards enables connection of a wide breadth of accessories, while our online calculation program and configurator ensure that implementation is done properly and can meet demanding application requirements."
Networked online tools enable users to select electric actuator sizes and customize actuators without installing or registering software. Configuration includes a direct download of CAD files that includes all elements of the configured solution such as electric cylinders, accessories, mounting options and motor adapters.
