The HepcoMotion PSD80 Profile screw-driven linear actuator features high-efficiency Herculane wheels, which mount to an adjustable carriage. The unit can have single or multiple carriages and handle loads to 500 N. Actuation is provided by a stainless-steel leadscrew with pitch ranges of 4, 15, 25, and 70 mm. The 25-mm lead is useful in Z-axis applications, while the 70-mm screw pitch handles higher speed pick-and-place requirements and allows speeds to 1 m/sec and thrust loads to 300 N. Available in left and right-hand threads, the leadscrew offers smooth, strong, and precise actuation. For greater positioning accuracy, a ball screw is available. The PSD80 comes as a closed or open format, depending on application requirements. The closed unit is rugged, tolerant of debris, and has many mounting options while the open version is compact, light, and has low friction.
