Moticont Introduces New Linear Voice Coil Actuator

Van Nuys, Calif. - Moticont has introduced the GVCM-019-016-02 Linear Voice Coil Actuator (Linear DC Motor). This small 0.75 in. (19.1 mm) diameter actuator, also called an Electric Cylinder, has a high force to size ratio of 7.4 oz (2.1 N) continuous force and 23.7 oz (4.4 N) of peak force and a stroke length of 0.250 in. (6.4 mm).  The housing measures just 0.625 in. long and in the fully extended position the shaft extends 0.436 in. (13.5 mm) beyond the face of the housing.

This linear actuator features high acceleration/deceleration, high speed, high reliability, and zero backlash. This small brushless servo motor is an ideal low cost replacement for pneumatic linear actuators and for: Heptic feedback and pipetting in medical devices, switch activation, testing, sorting, assembly equipment, work holding and clamping, scanners and laser beam steering and filtering, laser, machining and drilling, optical focusing, and dynamic vibration absorption.

Clean and quiet, this brushless servo linear actuator’s 0.094 in. (2.38 mm) diameter shaft has a 2-56-UNC-2A thread to a length of 0.156 in. (4.0 mm) for a backlash free connections and the housing and coil ends each have 2 4-40 UNC-2B threaded mounting holes on 0.313 in (7.9 mm) centers. The built in centered shaft facilitates the commissioning of the motor for easy integration into current and future applications.

Moticont also offers DC and servo motor drivers, single and multi-axis servo controllers. Is there a need for a higher force or longer stroke?  To find the right motor for your application, visit this site.
