The new ERD electric rod-style actuator is designed for caustic cleaning environments where contamination is not acceptable. Made of all-304 stainless steel, including an optional protective motor enclosure, the product is rated IP67 for washdown and is available in multiple screw technologies. The unit is available in stroke lengths of up to 12". Depending on the choice of ball nut or solid nut, the machine delivers up to 200 lbs. of thrust or speeds up to 40" per second using a stepper motor.
