GSA Actuators

The GSA linear slide actuator is ideal for medium- to high-thrust applications.

GSA Linear Slide Actuators combine an electric rod actuator with guide rods, mounting blocks and bearings. A complete selection of sizes, options and system components are available. The GSA Linear Slide Actuator offers high performance, dependability and mounting flexibility for pivotal applications.

  • 4 U.S. customary and metric body sizes
  • Forces up to 4.2 kN (950 lbf)
  • Wide tooling plate for end effector mounting
  • Choice of linear ball or composite bearings with internal lubrication of guide rods for increased bearing life
  • Standard or oversized guide rod diameter for increased rigidity and lower deflection
  • Stroke lengths up to 914 mm (36 in)
