ElectroCraft has recently expanded the AxialPower enhanced series of linear actuators to include a new high-performance 42mm (NEMA 17) frame size. This new linear actuator is highly configurable and:
• Is available with a variety of imperial or metric leadscrew options
• Achieves resolutions of 0.006 mm to 0.050 mm per step
• Delivers output force of up to 1,001 N (225 lb)
• Offers 40% more force than competitive size-17 designs
ElectroCraft hybrid stepper-based linear actuators provide original equipment manufacturers the precision, performance, and reliability required for a wide variety of motion-control positioning applications. From medical and laboratory equipment to industrial machinery, ElectroCraft offers configurable to completely customizable solutions in three unique product designs:
• Linear actuator (non-captive)
• Leadscrew motor (external linear)
• Guided linear actuator (captive)
“ElectroCraft’s unique motor, shaft and insert designs offer industry-leading linear force per frame size while providing superior precision, speed and efficiency,” notes Scott Rohlfs of ElectroCraft.
“These new actuators are suitable for a wide variety of medical and laboratory applications including precision metering pumps, mass spectrometers, gas and liquid chromatography systems, medical imaging systems, sample handling and dispensing systems, allowing equipment manufacturers to reduce product footprints while significantly increasing performance.”
ElectroCraft’s AxialPower family of linear actuator products come in the most used frame sizes — including 28 mm (NEMA 11), 42 mm (NEMA 17), 56 mm (NEMA 23), and 86 mm (NEMA 34). For more information, visit www.electrocraft.com.
