Linear servomotor-driven actuator
Aerotech’s ACT linear motor actuator offers a high speed, high acceleration, maintenance-free alternative to ball screws and belt drives.
The cost-effective linear actuator offers travel ranges from 100 mm to 1.5 m, acceleration capability up to 5 g, velocity capability up to 5 m/s, and maximum continuous force output up to 270.7 N. The ACT comes with a direct drive, zero-cogging motor and noncontact optical linear encoder. Faster and more accurate than a ball screw or belt-drive without the costly, time-consuming maintenance ball screw or belt-drives require. Because the ACT is an integrated, assembled mechanical system, it also eliminates the design complexity and guesswork in choosing and assembling individual components.
