Linear Actuator Promises Unmatched Capabilities

A new high-force captive linear actuator has been designed with numerous options touted to deliver unmatched capabilities, and opening avenues for equipment designers who require performance and endurance in a compact package. The Size 14 actuator is manufactured with engineering thermoplastics in the rotor drive nut and a stainless steel Acme lead screw. With this patented design, quiet and maintenance-free operation is said to be ensured. The actuator comes in a wide variety of resolutions ranging from 0.00012" to 0.00192" per step and delivers thrusts of up to 50 lbs. without compromising long life or cost. Built for a lifetime of several million cycles, the actuator is designed with an integral anti-rotation mechanism, making it suitable for applications in which external anti-rotation methods would be difficult or impossible to employ. Typical applications include medical equipment, X-Y Tables, automation of any kind, and valve control. HAYDON SWITCH & INSTRUMENT INC., Waterbury, CT. (800) 243-2715.
