ForTorque® Swivelling-Rotary Modules

Overview

ForTorque® stands for super-thin, high-dynamic swivelling-rotary modules with large torques, very compact dimensions and little weight.

ForTorque® is a construction kit consisting of servo-electric swivelling-rotary modules, that are available in three sizes with diameters of 25, 35 & 45 mm. The moduels are compatible with our HighDynamic® linear motor actuator series and are equipped with an AC servo drive, a gearbox and generously dimensioned backlash-free bearings. This makes them especially suitable for screwing applications, as well as angular positioning of applications with large external inertia loads. Exact angular positioning, endless rotation and torque control over motor currents are the performance characteristics, as well as an extended operating temperature range of -30°C to +90°C ambient temperature.
The ideal automation product for fast screwing, swivelling handlings, mountings and test automation.
