Linear Motion - Linear Actuators

When automated equipment is designed, various factors must be taken into consideration including the production line layout, installation environment, ease of maintenance, configuration of electrical wiring and control system, and so on. This means many man-hours are needed to select the motor and other mechanical components and create a parts list, drawings, operating manuals, and the like. Use of linear actuators can reduce this time.

The linear actuators are equipped with a stepper motor offering excellent controllability providing them advantages over hydraulic and pneumatic actuators:

  • The linear actuator is very stable when operated, even at low speeds. It also offers smooth acceleration and deceleration operation.
  • Motions can be programmed with multiple stopping points.
  • With a linear actuator using a stepper motor, adjustment of position and speed can be performed easily using data. Setup change is also simple, all you need to do is change the data.




Linear actuators - cylinders feature a stepper motor integrated with a linear motion mechanism, which makes the actuator ideal for pushing and pulling a load.


Linear Slides

Linear Actuators - Linear Slides integrate a motor with a linear motion mechanism, which makes the actuator odeal for transferring loads.

Linear Slides
