Compact Linear Actuators

The MiniLift family of mechanical linear actuators is available in metric sizes with dc and ac models, providing a compact positioning system.


The actuators range in dynamic capacity from 500 to 3,000 N and are made to standard travels, with custom travels available. They feature an aluminum body, actuator tube, and clevises with a bronze worm gear and drive component. A full line of accessories, including encoders, limit switches, and potentiometers are available. Candidate applications are those needing intermittent, extendedduty, and heavy-duty actuation in a compact package.
