INMOCO is introducing a new high-precision roller screw actuator to the UK, designed for incorporation into weld guns and pedestal welders, which should provide a service life of 30 million or more welding cycles. Developed by Diakont in the USA, the actuators are designed with an optimised inverted planetary roller screw thread. They made using specialised hardening processes and to tight machining accuracy. As such they offer a service lifetime of three to five times industry norms and produce a highly-repeatable welding force of up to 18kN.

For lightweight welding solutions

Featuring an integrated permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) paired with a precisely machined roller screw, these electric actuators are also lightweight and compact, so easy to mount onto a welding machine or into a work station on a production line.

"Diakont C-type and X-type weld gun actuators, for instance, start at 10.6 kg, making them one of the most lightweight solutions in the welding industry," notes Gerard Bush of INMOCO. "For users who require particularly lightweight servo guns, Diakont also offers actuators starting at 5 kg. These allow the end user to operate smaller robots, resulting in an efficient production space layout, and savings in operating costs."
