This section provides an overview for servo cylinders as well as their applications and principles. Also, please take a look at the list of 10 servo cylinder manufacturers and their company rankings.

A servo cylinder is an electrically driven cylinder that converts motor rotation into linear motion by means of a ball screw.
By setting numerical values for time, position, and load, precise motion that could not be achieved with hydraulics is possible.
The above advantages include reduced defect rates, improved yield, and simplified inspection processes.
It is necessary to select a servo controller for each application.
In recent years, hybrid production facilities that combine servo motors and servo cylinders have been introduced to improve manufacturing sites.
Servo cylinders are used mainly in the industrial field in combination with ball screws and other mechanical components in various industrial machines to perform linear motion electrically.
Servo cylinders use motors with excellent responsiveness, enabling high-precision positioning that could not be achieved with hydraulic or pneumatic systems.
However, because of this, the control system needs to be built through a servo controller, which tends to increase the man-hours required to design the equipment.
Specific examples of use are as follows:
This section describes the principle of servo cylinders. Servo cylinders generally perform linear motion by driving a timing belt from a timing pulley through a motor and rotating a ball screw.
Although there are various types of servo cylinders (small, medium, and large), the basic structure of servo cylinders is to drive a timing belt from a timing pulley through a motor to rotate a ball screw.
The servo cylinders can be controlled as intended by setting time, position, load, and other information to the servo cylinders via the servo controller.
There are two main types of control methods: load control and position control.
As an example, the design flow of the load control method, which is often used, is described below.
