ElectroCraft has expanded its linear actuator line up for the AxialPower family with the APES17.
The company has recently expanded the series to incorporate a new high-performance 42mm (NEMA 17) frame size. This new actuator is highly configurable and offered with a mixture of imperial or metric leadscrew options with resolutions ranging from 0.006mm to 0.05mm per step, with an unbelievable output force of up to 1001N (225lbs). The APES 17 provides 40% more force than competing size 17 designs.
These hybrid stepper-based linear actuators offer original equipment manufacturers the performance, precision and reliability that is needed for a broad assortment of motion control positioning applications. From medical and laboratory equipment to industrial machinery, the company offers configurable to fully customisable solutions in three individual product designs: linear actuator (non-captive), leadscrew motor (external linear) or guided linear actuator (captive).
“ElectroCraft’s unique motor, shaft and insert designs offer industry-leading linear force per frame size while providing superior precision, speed and efficiency,” notes Scott Rohlfs, director of Product Marketing, “These new actuators are ideal for a wide variety of medical and laboratory applications including precision metering pumps, mass spectrometers, gas and liquid chromatography systems, medical imaging systems, sample handling and dispensing systems, allowing equipment manufacturers to reduce product footprints while significantly increasing performance.”
