Submersible/Harsh Environment Linear Shaft Motor

Submersible/Harsh Environment Linear Shaft Motor

The Linear Shaft Motor has no backlash, no wear and provides extremely smooth motion. Because the Linear Shaft Motor is a simple mechanical design consisting of only a forcer (coils) and magnetic shaft, it is virtually maintenance free, creates minimal noise and operates well in harsh and wash down environments.

The Linear Shaft Motor is also an ideal replacement for more traditional linear motion systems including ball-screws, belt drives, piezo motors, u-channel motors, and rack and pinion linear actuators. The Linear Shaft Motor provides greater energy efficiency, precision, accuracy, repeatability, and cost efficiency than similar linear systems.
