CURTISS-WRIGHT SENSORS & CONTROLS LAUNCHES NEW HIGH FORCE ELECTRIC PRESS ACTUATORS

2018-12-12
Curtiss-Wright’s Sensors & Controls Division today announced the release of its newest Exlar® brand electric press actuator, the FTP160. The FTP160 is the second frame size of the high-force electric rod-style press actuators and is designed exclusively for press applications.

The Exlar FTP Series actuators allow machine builders to meet ever-increasing performance demands, while minimizing maintenance and downtime. Based on planetary roller screw technology, the FTP Series offers very high force in a very small package.

With continuous force ratings to 200 kN (45,000 lbf) pressing, and speeds to 401 mm/sec (15.8 in/sec), and stroke lengths from 150 mm (6 inches) to 900 mm (36 inches), the FTP Series can be applied across a wide range of pressing applications.

The FTP160 features include:
-High capacity planetary roller screws offering up to 15X the life and significantly higher shock load resistance than a comparably sized ball screw
-IP65S (min.) environmental protection
-Idler pulley design greatly simplifies motor installation and belt tensioning / maintenance
-Rigid circular front mounting flange simplifies installation
