Linear Actuators

The LinearBeam functions as a rodless linear actuator.

It can handle 200-ton loads or more and extend to virtually any stroke length. Recent applications include a system to move nuclear waste 30 m, move a stage with orchestra, steel-mill transfer systems, an offshore skid-movement transfer system, and furnace-loading systems.
