For more than 40 years, Tolomatic has been
a leader in the linear motion field. Tolomatic
created an industry with the introduction
of the rodless air cylinder and has since
invented many more innovative products to
solve most any linear motion need. Tolomatic
is unique in the industry by offering multiple
technologies, and merging all of them together
to offer solutions to industry. Tolomatic
offers fluid power, electro-mechanical linear
and power transmission equipment. Tolomatic
also offers a very aggressive delivery promise.
Any standard catalog item can be ready for
shipment within 5 working days. Tolomatic
is also very willing to modify their existing
product line, if your application can not
utilize their off the shelf product line.
cylinders Tolomatic invented the worlds
first rodless cylinder in 1955. This allowed
for smaller and more compact devices to
perform the same operation as the much more
space demanding rod type cylinder. The current
product line includes magnetically coupled
cylinders, magnetically coupled slides,
linear slides, BC3 band cylinders, BC2 band
cylinders, BC4 band cylinders, cable cylinders,
double purchase cable cylinder, single acting
cable cylinders, and track cable cylinders.
cylinder slides featuring H-Block, U-Block,
Channel-Block, Power-Block, and Power-Block2
designs. Bore ranges (depending on style)
start at 9/16 and go up to 3 ¼
with stroke lengths available from stock
of up to 12. Tolomatic even offers
different linear bearings, depending on
your application, you can choose from bronze,
composite, or precision ball.
rotary actuator offers an unbeatable combination
of high torque, compact design, low breakaway
and a low price. Bore sizes range from 1
to 2 ½, delivering torques
from a few inch pounds to as high as 325
inch pounds. Some of our features are Buna-N
stator seal, extruded integral stator, patented
plastic-to-metal shaft seal, aluminum end
caps, extruded aluminum housing, internal
bumpers, Buna-N double lip vane seal, and
stainless steel shaft.
and Pinion rotary feature one of the highest
torque to weight ratios in the industry.
Available in bores from ¾ to
1 ¼. Rotation options of 0
to 180, and 0 to 360 degrees are available.
Features include; ball bearing supported
input shaft that reduces friction and offers
higher capacities of side loading the pinion
and shaft, extruded light weight anodized
aluminum housing pre-tapped with mounting
holes, single rack and pinion design for
a compact and low profile unit, and adjustable
stops with nylon bumpers for low inertia
Our line of hardworking grippers are price
competitive units, available in both angular
and parallel styles and come in a range
of six bore sizes ranging from 3/8
to 3 for a multitude of light or heavy
duty pick and place applications.
Some of the features offered on our standard
line of grippers are: hard-coat anodized
bodies, nickel plated fingers, pretapped
holes in jaws for customized finger tooling
attachment, double acting jaws for internal
or external gripping force, and side block
adjustments to compensate for wear or quick
Transmission Equipment Tolomatic offers
pneumatic clutches and brakes, Float-a-shaft
gearboxes, and pneumatic caliper disc brakes.
The Float-a-shaft was designed by Tolomatic
over 35 years ago. The Float-a-shaft is
a universal right angle gear drive coupling.
It consists of two 45 degree helical gears
that mesh at right angles, designed to transmit
power around any corner. Float-a-shaft can
be operated in any direction, and can slide
axially along the drive or driven shaft.
It is offered in two torque ranges; low
torque journal bearing series, and high
torque sealed roller bearing series. Some
of the Float-a-shaft unique features are:
bores that are ground to .001 tolerance,
and allow the use of standard shafting,
hardened steel thrust races and bearings,
it can slide along the length of the shaft,
only limited by the length of the keyway,
it can accommodate either blind or through
keyways, all helical gears are case hardened
alloy steel, and the housing is made of
a durable cast aluminum.
ELECTRIC LINEAR MOTION CONTROL PRODUCTS
This family of products offers linear motion
control utilizing a variety of technologies
ranging from lower cost direct current motors
and controls, to the pinnacle of accuracy
using quality servo controls and motors.
This line is very versatile, and can accomplish
the easiest task of simple one way motion,
or a very complicated operation of multiple
axis with multiple start/stop operations
while maintaining absolute accuracy. Tolomatic
is also able to merge the Axidyne with other
products that they manufacture, like grippers
and vane rotary actuators. The best part
is that Tolomatic designs, manufactures,
assembles, tests, and guarantees the entire
system, so rather than having to use multiple
vendors to try to coordinate a working system,
Tolomatic does this for you, and takes away
all of the guess work.
In addition to all of the superior products
that Tolomatic has to offer, they also offer
their own accessories that make their products
work that much better, such as, electrical
switches and switching devices, shock absorbers,
rubber cushions, adapter plates, brake discs,
parts manuals, rebuild kits, tube supports
and field retrofits.
