Industrial actuator initiative speeds up machine build timesSKF is announcing a new industrial actuator initiative, designed to help UK distributors and OEMs to speed up machine build, modification and repairs, while reducing stockholding and benefiting end users.

The range of industrial actuators, which includes selected CAHB and CAT electromechanical actuator series, is now available for delivery in just five working days ex-factory from Sweden. Product selection and online ordering, which is also available for the full linear motion ranges with standard delivery, can be completed quickly and easily in just two steps through a simple selector guide and dedicated customer link.

Designed to operate reliably in harsh environments and temperatures ranging from -40 to 85degC at a 25 per cent duty cycle, the SKF CAHB family features a robust corrosion-resistant design, sealed to IP66. It is available in two series: CAHB-20/21, for application loads between 2500 and 4500 N, and CAHB-10, a compact option for low-load applications up to 1000 N.

The CAT electromechanical actuator’s modular design enables simple and speedy interchange of critical components, such as motors, gears, screws, and attachments, whilst also delivering highly efficient performance. The CAT series is designed for application loads between 600 and 4500 N and to operate effectively in temperatures ranging from -20 to 50degC. In addition, it offers outstanding levels of specification with extended service life and a choice of accessories, including rod-ends, limit switches and encoders.

SKF’s CAHB and CAT industrial actuator series, which are part of the company’s large range of actuators for industry, are suitable for many different applications, including medical, factory automation, food and beverage, off-highways, and more.
