Parker ETH – a New High Force Electric Actuator

Robin Daughtry | January 26th, 2012

The Cross Automation Group is Pleased to Announce Parker’s New ETH Series Cylinder

This next generation electric cylinder from Parker offers unrivaled power density – this is the next generation version of the well known and widely used Parker ET Series.  The ETH design offers unrivaled power density due to larger screw and bearing designs in smaller packages.  The result is a product that offers increased force output from a given frame size or increased product life at the same force output.  The ETH is a user friendly design offered in a diversified range of configurations in order to meet specific application requirements.

available in 3 profile sizes with both in-lin and parallel motor configurations,
ETH cylinders provide stroke lengths up to 1600 mm and speeds to 1.7 m/sec

Typical Parker ETH Applications

The ETH electric cylinder closed the gap between electromechanical and hydraulic cylinder performance making it suitable to use in higher force applications where increased reliability is required in the production process.  Taking the costs of the hydraulic system components into consideration, it is found that in most cases an electromechanical system  like the Parker ETH offers the more economical solution.  Combined with accessories, it offers several possibilities in these applications:

  • test equipment and labaroatory
  • packaging machinery
  • valve and flap actuation
  • pressing
  • material handling & feed systems

What about Harsh Conditions?

If your electric cylinder needs to withstand harsh conditions or meet critical design specs, we can help.  There are many Parker non-standard design option that will help you match the ETH to your specific application requirements including:

  • customized mountings and rod ends
  • oil-splash lubrication
  • hardened cylinder protection for aggressive environmental conditions
  • mounting of customer motors
  • overlong, polished or chrome-plated thrust rods
  • rod bellows
  • more….

The motion experts at the Cross Automation Group have been solving tough electric cylinder applications for decades.
