Parker Hannifin launches larger ETH high-force electro cylinder

Parker Hannifin is launching the ETH125 high-force electro thrust cylinder as the latest addition to its proven ETH range. As with other models in the range, the new ETH125 combines the advantages of hydraulics with those of electronics, profiting from its rugged design and the resulting long service life. Typical applications for the ETH125 include material forming and press applications, food processing and packaging machinery, industrial automation and other applications where users are looking for an energy-saving electric cylinder for precise positioning and force control.

In common with the frame sizes ETH032, ETH050, ETH080 and ETH100, the development of the ETH125 focused on realising an extraordinary force density (force per frame size). A precision-ground ball screw is the centrepiece of the construction. The ETH cylinder offers low friction, an efficiency of up to 90 per cent, smooth operation over the entire speed range and a long service life. Thanks to the high availability of the ball screw, and short lead-time, attractive prices are guaranteed. Like its smaller siblings, the ETH125 features an integrated anti-rotation device as standard, which simplifies the integration of the cylinder into adjacent systems. The standard central lubrication port integrated within the cylinder body helps to reduce maintenance overhead and downtimes.

Electro thrust cylinder options

The ETH125 is available with screw leads of 10mm and 20mm. It can achieve thrust forces of up to 114,000N, travel speeds of up to 833mm/s and accelerations of up to 10m/s2. ETH125 cylinders come in defined standard strokes of 100mm to 2000mm, but are configurable in steps of 1mm. With a repeatability of up to 0.03mm, the ETH125 is suitable for tasks requiring precise motion, positioning, setting and actuating.

Like all cylinders of the ETH series, the ETH125 is available with parallel or inline motor configuration. Thanks to a variety of mounting options, which can be chosen according to customer requirements, customers may combine the cylinder with many different motors and gearboxes. The number of rod end configurations and mounting options offer the flexibility to integrate the electro cylinder into customer applications. Various sensors and cables can be inserted directly into a groove in the ETH profile, which may then be protected by a cover. This ensures a smooth surface for easy cleaning and safe handling.

The ETH is offered as standard with IP54 protection and galvanised screws, but it is also available with stainless steel screws or sealed to IP65 with an additional coating to protect the cylinder against aggressive chemicals, thus meeting the needs of more demanding environmental conditions.

Simplifying product selection and mounting, Parker can also provide a complete drive train, including matching servo drive controllers, motors and gearboxes. All of these components can be selected and programmed easily with the easy-to-use Compax3 software-tools.
