Built for clean room environments, the CGL15N/CGL20N actuator possesses a clean, corrosion-resistant and maintenance-free design, the company says. For low particle generation, the actuator features a seal mechanism and a full-size cover. AFE-CA grease is also used to reduce dust. The actuator’s ballscrew and LM guide come treated for high corrosion resistance. The incorporation of the company’s Caged Technology is said to result in long-term, maintenance-free performance. This technology employs a synthetic resin cage with a custom curvature that cradles each ball and separates it from the next one. The spaces between the rolling elements retain grease and act as a lubrication system.
The actuator not only provides low dust generation, but also high speed capabilities. It is compliant with ISO 14644-1 Class 4 (equivalent to FED209D Class 10) at 2,000 mm/second.
