Parker’s Electromechanical Automation Division has expanded its XE line of linear actuators to include the 401 XE. The new 401 XE is now the smallest ball screw driven product Parker offers, measuring just 30 mm in width by 15 mm in height. The 401 XE design is based on the same mono-carrier construction as the 402 and 403 XE, just in a more condensed size.
To complement the compactness of the 401 XE, Parker is also now offering parallel motor mounts for all of the XE series, as well as the LCR 30 series actuator. The parallel motor mount allows an instrument builder to maximize the amount of stroke per unit length of the actuator.
Potential applications areas range from electronics manufacturing to instruments performing diagnostic testing on biological samples.
