Mount a Motor and Gearbox to Your Actuator With Ease

Mount a Motor and Gearbox to Your Actuator With Ease


At first glance, choosing an actuator comes down to whether the unit can deliver the necessary performance to meet application requirements. However, it can be easy to overlook an actuator’s assembly needs, particularly when it comes to mounting the motor and gearbox. For example, space constraints can make mounting components challenging, while other projects may require a change to the mounting configuration out in the field. For these situations, we offer robust actuators that incorporate hollow shaft heads, enabling engineers and system integrators to employ multiple mounting strategies.

Avoid the Mistakes That Cause Premature Linear Bearing Failure

Avoid the Mistakes That Cause Premature Linear...


When implementing a linear guide or actuator into a system, you will likely have high expectations for how well the linear components will perform and how long they will last. Meeting those expectations, however, requires careful product selection and preventative measures against various threats such as wear, contamination, misalignment, impacts or shock. Neglecting these threats can result in crashes or premature failures that cost production time and money.

New Telescoping Rail Family Solves Many Challenges...


Automated systems rely on linear guides to provide telescopic motion or extract moving parts — often in a vertical configuration. It can be difficult to find a guide that performs these functions, withstands high dynamics and shifting work cycles, and also offers flexibility regarding stroke needs, load sizes and orientation. The unit you choose must also provide a long service life while requiring little maintenance to meet aggressive production and availability goals.
