EC5 Series

The EC5 Series provides our most robust line of electric cylinders for very heavy thrust loads. Precision-rolled ball screw types yield quiet operation, low backlash and high accuracy, with a selection of motor-to-screw reduction types. Exceptionally durable bearing and drive housings are available with optional environmental features to resist moisture and contaminants. The special design minimizes the need for routine maintenance.
