Distinctive features of the Servo-press Compatible Load Cell-equipped ROBO Cylinder®

Feature 1 Equipped with servo-press specification

An expansion was added in to the servo-press specification. This ROBO Cylinder has a standard-equipped load cell, and made able to perform force-control.

What does the term "pressing motion" means?
Pressing motion refers to a function which allows the rods or sliders to have its position maintained while having it pressed against the work, just as how Air Cylinders work.
Servo-press has an excellent stopping stability, making it suitable for pressing motions.
It gives a wide range of usage as it can be used in high pressing force required process such as pressurizing and caulking.
What does the term "force-control" means?
It refers to the dedicated load cell equipped to actuator. This load cell allows a high precision pressing control as it controls the pressing motions utilizing the feedback data of the pressing force.
What does the term "servo-press specification" means?
The press program provides multiple selection for the usable types of pressing motion.

Feature 2 Highly precise load-control

The dedicated load cell installed in the tip of the rod detects the load applied against the press target. The load detection brings a large benefit to the repetitive load accuracy for load controls, enhancing its value up to ±0.5%F.S.(Full Scale).

Feature 3 An ample line-up

The selectable type includes the 4 newly introduced type, allowing a choice from wide selection between 600N~19600N.
The wide range of choice allows you to find the tool which fulfill your wants.

Feature 4 Connectable with external devices

Weight load data can be output as analogue signal (4-20mA).
Commercial load displaying devices can be used to
display displacement-load graph, judgment,etc.
Pulse counters are also connectable as to find out
the feedback impulse.
