B3W Actuators

B3W linear belt drive actuators have an enclosed ball bearing design for heavy loads, high bending moments, and long service life.

RSA-HT Heavy Duty Electric Linear Actuators

The RSA-HT heavy duty electric rod linear actuator accommodates larger motors and delivers high force with excellent accuracy and high speed. These high force electric linear actuators feature ball or roller screw selections, an enhanced high thrust bearing, and heavy duty internal bumpers. The standard grease zerk extends screw life by making relubrication easy and convenient without disassembly. RSA-HT actuators are suitable for valve actuation, punch press, injection molding and a wide range of other application.

MXB-S Actuators

Compact belt drive linear actuator for use in applications requiring light to moderate load carrying with guidance and high speeds. Loads up to 520 lbs (236 kg).

RSX High Force Electric Linear Actuators

Hydraulic-class electric linear actuators that are roller screw driven, and provide extremely high forces, precision, and long life. Ideal for hydraulic replacement. Forces up to 66,000 lbf (294 kN).

IMA Food Grade Servo Actuator

Food grade design combines an electric rod actuator and motor into one design with a white epoxy coating for wash-down environments. Integrates with 3rd party drives and accessories. Forces up to 6,900 lbf (30.6kN).

IMA Linear Servo Actuators

Electric rod actuator integrated with a servo motor in a single, compact design that integrates with 3rd party drives and accessories. Forces up to 8,044 lbf (35.8 kN).
