Oct. 17, 2017 - SKF has launched the CASM 100 electromechanical actuator with a range of modules, describing it as “exceptionally adaptable” to satisfy various applications in different sectors.

The technology can be used in the automation sector on applications including servo presses, test benches, plastic injection moulding, dosing machinery and conveyors, says SKF, as well as for roll adjustment in pulp and paper mills. The CASM 100’s modular design offers a base platform with new modules planned for release over time to cater for future needs. The standardized interface between modules – similar to the concept of Lego bricks – increases the unit’s flexibility and makes it backward compatible, says the company.

According to SKF, the actuator consumes up to 80 per cent less energy than pneumatic alternatives and 50 per cent compared to hydraulic solutions. It also uses fewer consumables because, in many applications, is virtually maintenance-free, only requiring re-lubrication using standard grease. There is also no need to change hydraulic fluids and seals and promises to be clean, leak-free, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly.
