JVL recently introduced six Hollow Core Rotary Actuators. These integrated rotary actuators are available in two table sizes, the HDCT-100 and the HDCT-130, and each with a choice of three motors. An optional sensor kit, and control modules such as Profibus, Devicenet and Ethernet, and point-and-click programming are designed to allow for easy integration into new and existing applications.
Each of the hollow core rotary actuators are available either with the MIS231 integrated stepper or with an integrated servo motor, the MAC140 or MAC400. The table diameter and hollow core of the HDCT-100 is 95 mm (3.74 in.) and 29 mm (1.14 in.) and the table diameter and hollow core of the HDCT-130 is 120 mm (4.72 in.) and 35 mm (1.38 in.). Mounted in any position these rotary actuators are designed for manufacturing, inspection, positioning, research, tracking, medical, and other applications.
The HDCT-100 has a nominal output torque of 6.8 Nm (963 oz-in.), max speed of 167 or 200 rpm (motor dependent), and axial load of 150 N (33.7 lbs.). The HDCT-130 has a nominal output torque of 12 Nm (1699 oz-in.), max speed of 167 or 200 rpm (motor dependent), and axial load of 200 N (45 lbs.). Each of these low cost, precision hollow rotary actuators has repetitive positioning accuracy of ±15 arcsec, runout of table surface ±0.015 mm (.00059 in.), and parallelism of platform ±0.03mm (.001 in.).
