The Thomson TC series of precision actuators includes models TC2, TC3, TC4 and TC5 rod-style actuators. Easily programmed, the series is available with a choice of stepper, servo or DC motor with drive/controller for compatibility with every motion control environment. Typical industry applications include positioning, web edge guiding, indexing, traversing, stamping, forming, bending and other harsh industrial environments. The actuators are designed for a broad range of capabilities, from light-thrust loads handled by the T2 through heavy-thrust loads up to 5,620 lb handled by the TC5. They feature stroke lengths through 60 in., speeds up to 52 ips in four ranges and repeatability to 0.0005 in. Operating temperature range is minus 22F to plus 158F. Maintenance is minimal.
