Festo's DGEA cantilever electric linear actuator is designed with a slide unit that remains stationary while the profile moves axially, making it suitable for space-contained multi-axis configurations.
For straightforward motion applications where primarily simple and fast mounting of a small encoder is decisive, Heidenhain offers a new, high-quality, low-cost exposed linear encoder package, the LIDA 200 series.
New from THK, the GLM20 complete 1-axis positioning system offers high acceleration/deceleration, low noise levels, and operates at speeds to 4 m/sec and 2G while achieving accuracies of 1 micron average or better.
Heidenhain’s LC Series absolute linear encoders have been redesigned from the ground up to better meet today’s measurement requirements in machine tools and now include 2 interfaces--the company’s EnDat 2.2 and FANUC 02.
The SFL linear blow molders from Sipa Plastic Packaging Systems are highly flexible, with lower power consumption and fast configuration changes. SFL 6 platform provides production capacity to 1길 bottles/hr/cavity.
