The new integrated-motor actuator (IMA) combines a servomotor with a rod-style actuator. The IMA’s integrated design provides higher dynamic performance by eliminating the need for separate motors, couplers, motor mounts, gearing, and belts.The actuator provides up to 2,000 lbf of force, high speed (23 ips), ±0.00984‑in. positional accuracy, and comes in incremental stroke lengths from 6 to 18 in.The IMA is offered with multiple ball-screw leads and a choice of motor winding voltages. A patent-pending screw lubrication system allows for easy relubrication without disassembly.Tolomatic Inc., 3800 County Rd. 116, Hamel, MN 55340, (800) 328-2174,
