Rod-style linear actuators

The new K Series universal rod style linear actuators offer options for mounting any type of motor. It is available with multiple grades of planetary roller screws and an option for an Acme screw.

Four versions are available: The KT Series incorporates a high-performance precision planetary roller screw; KX Series provides a high-performance planetary roller screw; KM Series delivers the benefits of planetary roller screw technology over ball screws; and the KA Series has an Acme screw for low-duty cycle applications with 2.54-mm and 5.08-mm leads.

Users choose the motor brand and type, including brushless, servo, stepper, dc, or ac motor. Input transmission options include parallel motor mounts with belt transmissions. Standard ratios of 1:1 to 2:1 are offered. Additional options include a direct-drive in-line mount or a base unit without motor-mounting provisions. Mounting options include front or rear flange, rear clevis, rear eye, adjustable side trunnions, end angles, or foot mount. Available sizes include a 60-mm frame with standard stroke lengths to 750-mm and longer stroke lengths.
