Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions Introduces Miniature Stepper Motor Linear Actuator
AMETEK Advanced Motion Solutions Posted 12/21/2015
WATERBURY, CT - Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions has expanded its 15000 Series linear actuators with the addition of the smallest linear actuator in Haydon Kerk’s extensive stepper motor line. The new linear actuators occupy a minimal 0.6” (15mm) diameter space and incorporate some of the most-advanced motion control technology available today. Included in that very small package are numerous patented innovations that provide customers high performance and durability.
15000 Series linear actuators are available in two designs - captive and external linear versions –and in a wide variety of resolutions, ranging from 0.02mm to 0.10mm per step. The actuators deliver thrust of up to 60 oz (1.7 kg) without compromising long life or cost. Models also can be micro stepped for even finer resolution. A proprietary manufacturing process that incorporates engineering thermoplastics in the drive nut and a rolled stainless steel lead screw allows the motor to be highly efficient and durable.
Typical applications include medical equipment, semiconductor handling, valve control, X-Y tables, handheld instruments, and many more. In addition to standard configurations, Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions can custom design the actuators to meet specific application requirements.
