Courtesy: FestoThe EGC-HD (heavy duty) electric actuator features recirculating ball bearing guides that helps absorb lateral forces and torques. With a toothed belt or ball screw drive and two parallel guides, the EGC-HD is ideal for cantilevered systems. The toothed belt model EGC-HD-TB offers flexible motor connections on all four sides. 

The EGC-HD offers a multi axis and modular positioning system and standardized interfaces for all drives and motor packages. Festo’s free PositioningDrives software simplifies the selection process and eliminates costly oversizing. Specially developed profiles with optimized cross section give the EGC-HD maximum rigidity and load capacity. 

Inductive proximity sensors can be included with these actuators. Flush mounting of up to two sensors effectively eliminates protruding edges outside of the drive’s cross section. An LED status display is visible regardless of approach direction.
