A new stainless steel integrated electric actuator has been released for the food and beverage market. The Tolomatic IMA-S rod-style servo actuator, distributed in the UK by INMOCO, has been designed for demanding hygienic requirements in a robust, long-life package.
The IMA-S integrated actuator enables open machine design, removing the requirement to use shrouding to protect the actuator and shield the production area. The actuator is designing for food and beverage applications including volumetric pumping and dispensing, slicing and cutting, grating, sorting, and diverting.
The Tolomatic IMA-S integrated actuator is constructed from food-grade 316 stainless steel. This prevents corrosion which could harbor bacteria from saline and acidic substances commonly used in food and beverage production.
The IMA-S has also been designed for durability and long service life.
Automation integration is compatible with a wide variety of vendors, thanks to a range of feedback types, resolutions, and protocols.
The hygienic IMA-S series offers forces up to 11.1 kN (2500 lbf) and stroke lengths up to 450 mm (18 inches).
