MXB-U Actuators

Belt driven actuator is designed for applications where loads are externally guided and supported and high speeds are required. Forces up to 420 lbf (1.9 kN).

MXB-P Actuators

Linear actuator that uses a profiled rail bearing and belt drive train to move heavy loads at high speeds. Loads up to 1,290 lbs (586 kg).

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.

B3W Actuators

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

GSA Actuators

Design that combines an electric rod actuator with guide rods, mounting blocks, and bearings. Ideal for applications requiring guidance and support of the load. Forces up to 950 lbf (4.2 kN).

MXP-N Compact Air Cylinders

MXP-N internal bearing compact air cylinder offers a space-saving design over typical rod type air cylinders.

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).
