Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions (www.haydonkerk.com), one of the world’s leading manufacturers of linear motion products, has integrated the famous 36 mm G4 linear actuator with a special adapter plate. This makes the smaller 36 mm OD unit an ideal alternative for 46 mm and 42 mm units in current applications.
Aside from exceeding the performance of comparable size actuators, the new G4 linear actuator also offers performance similar to that of larger 46 mm and 42 mm linear actuators from different manufacturers. Using the same pilot surface and bolt pattern, users can easily replace the 46 mm and 42 mm units with the 36 mm unit with adapter plate.
The 36 mm G4 linear actuator is not only cost efficient, it is also more compact making it suitable for users working in environments where space is a premium. It also delivers a force output ranging between 70 N and 260 N (16 lb to 58 lb).
It employs state-of-the-art technologies to meet high-performance requirements as well as to extend its reliability. This compact linear actuator is specifically designed with optimized teeth geometry with high-energy neodymium magnets to achieve a higher continuous force output. Offering 20 percent higher output force, the new G4 integrated the latest larger bearings and custom-engineered plastics for higher axial load capacity and greater rotor support.
The new linear actuator is suitable for a vast array of applications, such as bar code scanning devices, medical equipment, laboratory instrumentation, printing equipment and other mechanisms that demands high force in a compact package.
