The ServoGateTM electric linear actuator from Tol-O-Matic, Inc. (Hamel, MN) was designed specifically for use in valve gate control systems in the molding of large and complex plastic parts. It features a new level of precision control, supports all-electric plastic injection molding and improves part quality—regardless of machine type. Additional features include an integrated design to achieve smaller envelope dimensions—coming in a package less than 7 in. x 7 in. Hydraulic valve banks powered by hydraulic power units are no longer required to control valve gate control and sequencing. The company’s Axiom® Plus PV brushless servo controller/drive controls the actuator. Windows®-based Tol-O-Motion software uses a simple point-and-click sequential programming. With PLC ladder logic editor for effortless programming, there is no need to learn new code. Additionally, reduced maintenance and environmental costs can be realized by using the actuator.
