New Del-Tron DL series linear actuators save space, have a fast and simple assembly, long life, and competitive price. The rigid enclosed aluminum box structure provides a compact envelope that incorporates the linear bearing and drive mechanism. Integrating all components into a single unit that includes the motor mount saves assembly time and eliminates jobbing out additional parts.
Del-Tron's integrated design offers low friction and high accuracy in a compact, lightweight package. DL series linear actuators come in four travel lengths, including 25, 50, 75, and 100 mm. They have an integrated anti-friction slide and Teflon-coated lead screw drive and recirculating, slide guide bearings for friction-free movement with a friction coefficient of 0.01.
The anti-backlash lead screw nut is spring-loaded to ensure positive movement when changing direction. The units offer straight-line accuracy of less than 2 µm and repeatability of less than 1 µm. They deliver 10 million in. of travel at their full load rating.
Options for Del-Tron DL series linear actuators include either an Oriental PK2553 stepper motor or a Sigma Mini 10 servomotor. Load capacities range to 100 N with the stepper motor and 150 N with the servomotor. Mounts are available for other styles of motors. Photoelectric or proximity position sensors are available. An anti-dust containment cover protects moving components and prevents particulate emissions.
Del-Tron provides special leads, diameters, couplings, motor mounts, and can vary the size, type, and travel of slides upon request. Del-Tron's website offers access to 2D and 3D CAD drawings which may be downloaded into the user's CAD system in a number of native CAD formats. Life and moment load calculators are also available to determine the suitability of a particular linear bearing for the intended application.
About Deltron Precision
Del-Tron Precision began operations in 1974, supplying original equipment manufacturers with the world's first commercially available subminiature ball slide. Since then, thousands of Del-Tron ball slides have been incorporated into medical analyzing and testing machines, semiconductor processing equipment, computer peripherals, assembly systems, scientific instruments, and many other machines. Del-Tron's corporate campus boasts highly automated computer controlled equipment, and final inspection of 100% of all products has been Del-Tron's policy since its inception.
