Use of fully closed control with a direct drive and an optic linear encoder yields high accuracy without motion loss and backlash. Unit provides 3000N of continuously useable linear force, with peak linear force of 4500N. Multiple sliders are installed on a single-axis base to allow sliders to be individually controlled. Also available in strokes of up to 4.4 m in a single unit.
