A New, compact, Electric Cylinder or Linear Voice Coil Actuator 38.1 mm (1.500 in.) in diameter, with a 12.7 mm (0.500 in.) stroke, and a housing length of 69.9 mm (2.750 in.) long has been released by Moticont. This new SDLM-0038-070-01-01M Linear DC Actuator features high repeatability, 1.25-micron resolution, a continuous force of 14.5 N (3.2 lbs.), and a peak force of 45.8 N (10.3 lbs.). To operate at peak efficiency an integral temperature sensor provides data to achieve the highest possible throughput. Each end of the housing features threaded mounting holes on a 19.1 mm (0.75 in.) bolt circle for universal mounting. This high speed, high acceleration/deceleration, non-cogging, high 1.25-micron resolution, high force-to-size Electric Cylinder has a linear encoder mounted internally for closed-loop servo operation.
The 6.4 mm (0.250 in.) non-rotating shaft has internally threaded holes for direct, zero backlash, connections to a load at each end. Additionally, the shaft is supported at both ends by long-life linear bearings and can tolerate side loads up to 24.0 N (5.4 lbs.). These clean, quiet linear actuators have a HOME sensor. They are ideal for medical, assembly, work holding and clamping, sorting, laser machining and drilling, packaging, sampling, scanning, laser beam steering, and filtering applications.
A complete Plug-and-Play servo controller is also available.
