Parker XFC Extreme Force Electric Cylinders
Hydraulic replacement with up to 80,000 lbs of force

Parker's XFC series an Extreme Force Electric Thrust Cylinder featuring roller screw drive technology. This industrially hardened cylinder product utilizes an all steel construction and is manufactured to standard metric hydraulic tie rod design. The resulting cylinder offers significantly greater levels of control in addition to being an energy efficient fluid power substitute.

Utilizing roller screw technology allows the XFC to achieve far greater thrust capacities than typical electric cylinders; a maximum thrust up to 356,000N (80,000lbs). The key to the roller screw is the utilization of planetary rollers in place of typical ball bearings providing an increased number of contact surfaces between the screw shaft and the roller nut, yielding greater stiffness and load capacity and making it ideal for shock loading applications.

  • Roller screw technology
  • Max Thrust- 356 kN
  • Max Speed- 1 m/s
  • Anti-rotate rod option
  • All steel construction
