What make a Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) so valuable?
I recently attended a successful Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) for the electromechanical ADE actuators that we supply during the renovation of the...

Mijnsbergen and ATB Automation introduce the new IAI RCP4W-RA rod type splash-proof electric actuators in Class IP67. The actuators is developed with a splash-proof structure to shut out water even when the cylinder is submerged in water, for use in food preparation machines, washing machines and other systems exposed to water splashes and jets.
A ball-circulating linear guide is built into the actuator to achieve longer strokes of up to 500 mm. Furthermore a maximum radial payload of 1.7 kg at the tip is achieved on 300mm stroke models.
The RCP4W-RA boasts the maximum acceleration/deceleration of 1 G and maximum speed of 560 mm/s, which are approx. 1.6 times the maximum acceleration/deceleration and maximum speed of any conventional splash-proof rod type, enabling a shorter cycle time for your system.
The ball screw and guide can be lubricated at the same time by adding grease from the grease nipples provided on the top face of the nut holder. Another grease nipple is provided on the top face of the front bracket to grease the sliding part of the rod.
Replacing the seals at the sliding part of the rod is very easy, because all you need is to change the front bracket.
