Parker-Origa has launched a series of electrical linear actuators developed for use in applications including ball-screw, trapezoidal, belt and linear motor drive applications.

The electrical linear actuators have been developed for use in applications requiring highly dynamic movements and long transverse paths.

The ODS-B has a toothed-belt design and is said to combine good performance characteristics and smooth operation with energy efficiency, while offering a particularly long service life for maximum productivity and profitability.

Developed to provide ease of mounting and assembly, the linear actuator ensures safe and ultra-precise positioning of large loads and forces, at optimum speeds and acceleration.

The motor can be mounted in virtually any orientation, offering high flexibility when designing a complete drive package.

Indeed, the actuator can be mounted directly onto, for example, a machine bed, be free-standing using standard mounting holes, or can be adapted to customer-specific requirements, using an alternative fixing system such as T-slots in the body profile.

As a result, the ODS-B series provides a wide range of assembly options.

Furthermore, the modular design of the linear actuator allows them to be operated either with or without retrofittable covers, which complies with either protection class IP20 IP54, depending on the demands of the operating environment.

Other accessories are also available, including high-resolution sensors for the precise measurement of end position, reference and displacements, braking systems and impact protection.

The linear actuators also feature externally accessible nipples for convenient central lubrication, cutting the time needed for maintenance tasks and reducing downtime.

For a flexible and bespoke construction, external limit switches can be fitted in a variety of positions, either inside or outside of covers, and are easily removable without assembly aids.

The limit switches, in either a reed contact or an electronic version, ensure maximum safety and convenience by promptly and effectively preventing heavy impacts at the actuator end positions, eliminating wear or damage.

In applications with particularly high operating speeds, the limit switches can also be combined with additional end position impact protection.

A further feature is a high-performance holding brake, which stops and holds the actuator under load, even during vertical movement.

This allows users to safely lock the actuator carriage or the work pieces being carried on it, which may be at a critical point in a transfer or machining process, in an exact position.

All additional fittings can be located beneath the covers of the linear actuator to prevent contamination or damage.

As a result, the ODS-B system is suitable for use in harsh and damp conditions, such as those typical of machining production and the food and beverage sectors.

Parker-Origa, a division of Parker Hannifin, is a leader in the innovative design and manufacture of pneumatic and electric actuation and control solutions for industrial automation.

The Origa System Plus range of rodless pneumatic cylinders provides a modular approach to linear automation with the easy integration of guides, controls, position sensing equipment and other accessories. An extensive range of electric linear drives capitalises on this system modularity and extends the scope of application with respect to loads, speeds, precision, positional accuracy and path control.

With annual sales exceeding 12USD billion, Parker Hannifin is the world’s leading diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems, providing precision-engineered solutions for a wide variety of commercial, mobile, industrial and aerospace markets. The company employs approximately 62,000 people in 48 countries around the world. Parker has increased its annual dividends paid to shareholders for 52 consecutive years, among the top five longest-running dividend-increase records in the S&P 500 index.
