Stainless steel linear actuator with integrated power electronics
With the ironless AA2518 tubular motor, a new type of linear motor is introduced by Beckhoff. The tubular motor is able to perform extremely smooth translatory movements and does not require further mechanical components such as e.g. a spindle for this. With a peak force of 1050 N and an acceleration of 8 m/s the AA2518 meets the highest requirements for precision and dynamics. Thus, it is ideally suited for use, for example, in the packaging industry or the machine tool sector.
Due to the elimination of mechanical drive components for power transmission, the tubular motor is both backlash-free and wear-free. The costs for regular maintenance and mechanical replacement parts are eliminated.
The product range is rounded off by the compatible secondary components to complement the tubular motor; the magnetic rod is available in different lengths. In combination with the AX8000 and AX5000 Servo Drives, the AA2518 is ideal to implement linear movements with a travel path of up to 600 mm in a confined space.
