Automotive Resistance Welding Actuator

High performance actuator range is compact and rugged

Posted Date: 06th Dec 2017

INMOCO, the motion control specialist, has introduced new electric servo actuators into its product offering. Made in California by Diakont, DA Series actuators are ruggedly built and offer long, reliable service for demanding industries such as automotive manufacture.

DA Series actuators use robust components such as planetary roller screws with state-of-the-art thread designs produced using special hardening processes. The actuators featuring integrated permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSMs) and their incorporation into production machinery and equipment is facilitated by their compact dimensions.

The DA99-W2 series actuators are intended for resistance weld guns and similar applications. They provide upwards of 30 million welding cycles, with highly-repeatable forces up to 22,500N (5000 lbf). With extremely high force capabilities, the DA140-2 actuators are ideal for applications such as robotic joining, pressing, and self-piercing riveting. DA67 units are intended for dispensing and liquid/sealant injection metering systems and offer accurate force and speed capabilities in a 67mm (2.7 inch) frame size. The ultra-compact DA82 delivers reliable performance for space-constrained applications such as injection moulding and hot runner systems.

“Reducing manufacturing costs and improving end-customer product quality are key goals for us,” says INMOCO engineer Gerard Bush."Diakont electric actuators deliver on these goals by leveraging technology – resulting in better performance and reliability, and lower life cycle costs.”
