IMA food-grade servo actuators from Tolomatic Inc. now have a white epoxy food-grade coating and stainless steel components for wash-down applications in the food and beverage industry.
The company says the durable IMA actuator series integrates a servomotor and a ball or roller screw for long service life.
The IMA actuator’s integrated motor design is well suited for applications such as slicing control, pressing, valve control and volumetric filling.
The IMA line of integrated servo motor rod actuators comes in four sizes and features stroke lengths from three to 18 inches and peak thrusts from 200 to 6,875 pounds of force at speeds of up to 24 inches per second.
The company says its patent pending design allows for easy re-lubrication of the screw without disassembly, increasing service life compared to other rod actuators without this feature.
