Bosch Rexroth Electromechanical Cylinder EMC

The Electromechanical Cylinder (EMC) from Bosch Rexroth has high thrust/speed capability with more flexibility and control for applications that traditionally use hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders. The EMC is a contained precision rolled ball screw actuator that ensures exact positioning with a powerful thrust capability. Compactly constructed EMCs are available in various sizes to meet your application needs. They are incredibly efficient, especially for applications with a small number of axes.

The Electromechanical Cylinder offers clear advantages, including its ability to travel to any intermediate target position with greater flexibility thanks to higher thrust and variable speed. The EMC provides high mechanical efficiency with minimal energy usage. Performance characteristics, including position accuracy, thrust, and speed, can be optimized to meet the performance requirements of your application. Stainless steel piston rods are also available for use in harsh conditions.

Bosch Rexroth’s Electromechanical Cylinder is flexible, offering motor attachment via motor mount and coupling or belt side drive. The EMC is compatible with an extensive series of Bosch Rexroth components to meet your application performance requirements. The Electromechanical Cylinder is quick to assemble and requires little maintenance.

Electromechanical Cylinder Key Benefits

  • Achieve exact positioning with the integrated ball screw drive

  • Quick assembly

  • Low maintenance

  • Preferred stroke lengths: 100, 200, 320, and 400 mm with shorter delivery times

Electromechanical Cylinder Application Examples

An Electromechanical Cylinder can be used in various applications as a replacement or in conjunction with pneumatic and hydraulic technology. Here are some of the more popular applications:

  • Machine Tools or Woodworking Machines

  • Dispensing Systems

  • Joining and Pressing
