The unit is available in a variety of resolutions ranging from 0.00012-inch to 0.00192-inch per step and delivers thrusts of up to 50 lbs. The captive linear actuator is designed using a patented integral anti-rotation mechanism and is especially well-suited for applications in which external anti-rotation methods would be difficult or impossible to employ, the vendor says. In addition to standard configurations, the actuator can also be designed to meet specific application requirements.
The latest addition to the vendor’s hybrid motor line is the Size 14 Captive Linear Actuator. The Size 14 linear actuator features engineering thermoplastics in the rotor drive nut and a stainless steel Acme lead screw.
