Hybrid Linear Actuator

The Size 14 hybrid linear actuator has a 0.9° step angle and a full-step linear movement of 1.6 µm. Four versions are available: captive, noncaptive, external linear, and linear rotary. Combined with a stainlesssteel leadscrew, the linear actuator delivers smooth, precise motion. Resolutions range from 0.00006 to 0.0025 in./step with operational thrust capabilities up to 50 lb. For finer resolution, the units can be microstepped. A patent-pending rotor drive nut delivers trouble-free, long-term performance.
