Tolomatic’s expanded extreme-force electric actuator family now includes the RSX128 actuator, rated up to 50,000 lb-f (222.4kN). Designed for 100% duty cycle and to replace hydraulic cylinders, the RSX actuator features Tolomatic’s precision-ground planetary roller screws for operating life in challenging environments. Applications include assembly, metal fabrication (pressing, punching, clamping), automotive manufacturing, timber processing, motion simulators and more.

The RSX128 actuator represents a 60% increase in the bi-directional maximum force provided by Tolomatic’s extreme-force RSX electric actuator family. Additional frame sizes include the RSX080, which provides 18,000 lb-f (80 kN), and the RSX096P press-model, optimized to provide extend force up to 40,000 lb-f (178kN).

For all models, IP65 is standard for protection against dust and water spray. IP67 is optional for improved resistance of water ingress. A modified food-grade version, designed for volumetric filling and other high-force food-and-beverage applications, is available as a custom design with food-grade white epoxy coating and stainless-steel components to meet the requirements of washdown applications.

The entire RSX actuator family’s construction includes tie-rods and Type III hard-coat anodized aluminum housings. A standard internal anti-rotate feature prevents the rod from rotating without external guidance.
