Electric alternative to screw or belt drives
Aerotech's new ACT series linear actuators are based on a cost-effective uncomplicated design featuring ultra smooth brushless linear servomotors, sub micron level encoder feedback and heavy duty linear guide bearings in demanding high throughput, high accuracy positioning applications for parts handling, assembly, dispensing, pick and place, non-contact inspection and scanning.
Available in widths of 11 mm, 140 mm and 165mm, and with travel range from 100mm to 1.5 metres, the modular ACT series provides the capability for higher production throughput and improved accuracy in comparison to ball-screw and belt driven alternatives with maximum speed to
5m/s and acceleration to 5g. Furthermore, a wide and flexible choice of options allow users to select a complete positioning system with price and performance matched to requirements. These include uncertified, certified or HALAR interferometer calibrated accuracy grades and a choice of power performance through a forced air cooled motor option.
There are also alternative cable management systems and flexible mechanical interfacing options ranging from single and X-Y axis configurations through to multi axis systems with dual parallel axes in gantry positioning styles as well as Z and theta axes selected from other Aerotech positioning stage lines.
