Product Announcement from Tolomatic
Tolomatic announces the introduction of three new sizes to the MXP rodless product, completing the size range from 16 mm to 63 mm bores. MXP is designed with Tolomatic's exclusive ENDURANCE TECHNOLOGY℠ features for maximum durability and long life. MXP delivers increased load capability and offers enhanced features to deliver superior performance and reliable operation. Featuring a new clean look, MXP is also designed for easy installation.
Tolomatic's advanced MX platform delivers a complete family of 30 actuators and provides increased bending moment and load capability, offering a range of 35 lbf to 2,583 lbf (Fz), with auxiliary carriers available for double the load capacity. With MXP, customers can select from 6 bore sizes, three durable bearing systems, and inch or metric versions to suit the widest variety of applications.
"We designed our MX platform to outlast every actuator on the market—and the latest enhancements in our rodless technology have made MXP the most reliable, rugged and simple-to-use pneumatic actuator in the industry," said Cory Danks, Tolomatic Product Manager. "MXP has already demonstrated its maximum durability in the field, and its expanded variety of sizes will ensure MXP continues to deliver the widest range of actuator solutions—all built-to-order and shipped by Tolomatic in five days or less."
MXP's three bearing options are designed to solve a broad number of application requirements. The Internal Bearing (N) design is a low cost solution featuring a permanently lubricated internal bearing and low breakaway pressure, making it ideal for applications with limited load and bending moment requirements. The Solid Bearing (S) design features increased bending moment capacity with a large carrier mounting pattern for more load security and a large bearing surface contact area, which minimizes pressure on bearing surfaces for long service life. The Profiled Rail (P) design features the highest load and bending moment capabilities in a low profile design. This system incorporates high precision, THK® Caged Ball® bearings with smooth, low breakaway motion, reducing friction for reliable service life.
MXP additionally offers upgraded reed and solid-state style switches featuring brightly colored LED signal indicators. Both switches provide red or yellow LED signal indicators, while solid-state switches feature an additional green LED to signal power activation. The switches are CE rated and RoHS compliant, and they are flush mounted for drop-in actuator installation. MXP also includes internal magnets to support sensors and switches.
