AutomationDirect has added second generation (Gen 2) linear motion slide actuators to its SureMotion line of motion control products. The SureMotion lineup includes both motor-ready actuator assemblies and an assortment of sliding components and accessories to provide a wide variety of motion control solutions for X-Y and X-Y-Z positioning systems.
The new Gen 2 Compact and Value Line motor-ready actuators replace existing actuators of the same model, length and screw pitch. With reduced parts count, the redesigned Gen 2 actuators provide even more reliable operation and offer additional mounting options.
Starting at $1,129.00, self-contained Gen 2 Compact slide actuators are available with travel distances to 36 in. and travel speeds up to 20 in./sec. Compact Gen 2 actuators have an integral wireway through the body and a more robust motor mount that fits both NEMA 17 and 23 motors.
Value Line linear slide actuators (starting at $789.00) are available with travel distances ranging from 6 in. to 24 in. The Gen 2 actuators add integral sensor mount grooves and a more robust motor mount. These versatile units can be mounted horizontally, vertically, or inverted without loss of load capacity.
SureMotion twin round-shaft slide actuators (starting at $2,399.00) are also available and feature continuously-supported round rail slide with ball screw actuation to provide robust precision linear motion. Round-shaft sliding elements, starting at $269.00, can be combined with the actuation assemblies to build a large variety of machine mechanisms. Available in both end- and continuously supported shafts, these sliding elements feature linear ball bearings, carbon-steel shafts and high-quality clear anodized aluminum blocks.
