Curtiss-Wright launches new motor support program for Exlar universal actuatorsEngineering360 News Desk | January 26, 2021
Curtiss-Wright’s Actuation Division has unveiled its new ASSIGN (any servo, stepper, integrated, geared or NEMA) motor program for Exlar FTX and FTP series actuators. These high-force/duty cycle, electric, rod-style actuators now provide the ability to support the mounting of almost any motor.
The Exlar FTX series actuators offer continuous load force ratings to 178 kN (40,000 lb-foot), speeds to 1,500 mm/sec (59 in/sec), and stroke lengths from 150 mm (6 in) to 900 mm (36 in). The actuators offer continuous load force ratings to 356 kN (80,000 lb-foot) and speeds to 401 mm/sec (15.8 in/sec), and stroke lengths from 150 mm (6 in) to 900 mm (36 in). The versatility of these actuators makes them suitable for a wide range of factory automation applications.
The new ASSIGN configuration capability simplifies selection of a wide range of motors, allowing customers to choose in-line or parallel mount configurations that accommodate a larger variety of motor dimensions. The program substantially increases the number of motor/actuator combinations available when using Exlar FTX and FTP series actuators, giving customers the ability to use the best motor for their application.
