BEI Kimco introduces LAH15-19-000A linear voice coil actuator

July 28, 2016 - BEI Kimco has developed a new Linear Voice Coil Actuator (VCA) that provides extremely low hysteresis/low friction with precise and consistent bi-directional position control. Initially designed to meet the exacting requirements of an anesthesia machine, the LAH15-19-000A VCA will serve well for many other applications where low friction and high force accuracy are needed.

Key to the VCA's design is a symmetrical flex circuit that prevents friction caused by movement to ensure results.  A solid brass ball cage with captured steel balls further reduces friction. These design features combine to deliver an operating performance with a hysteresis of 10 mN.  BEI Kimco's low-friction design can also be incorporated into the company's standard and custom VCAs.

Other performance attributes of the new LAH15-19-000A VCA include a peak force of 4.7 N, a total stroke of 7.4 mm and a compact size of just 38 mm in diameter by 48.3 mm in length.
