36-mm G4 Linear Actuator

WATERBURY, Conn., Aug. 23, 2011 — Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions, a division of Ametek Inc., has unveiled a new version of its 36-mm G4 linear actuator. Included is an adapter plate that allows the smaller 36-mm-outer-diameter unit to replace 42- and 46-mm units in existing applications.

The company says that the performance of the device approaches that of the larger 42- and 46-mm models from various manufacturers. The integrated adapter plate allows customers to replace existing 42- and 46-mm units easily by using the same bolt pattern and pilot surface.

Advantages of substituting include a smaller linear actuator body, which is important when space is at a premium, and a lower-cost system. The force output range for the G4 linear actuator is from 70 to 260 N.

The design uses optimized teeth geometry along with high-energy neodymium magnets, resulting in a higher continuous force output in a small package. With 20% higher output force across the entire speed range compared with other designs of similar size, the G4 incorporates the latest custom-engineered plastics and larger bearings for greater rotor support and higher axial load capability.

The 36-mm model is suitable for applications including medical equipment, bar-code scanning devices, printing equipment, laboratory instrumentation and other mechanisms that require high force in a small package. Three configurations are available: captive, noncaptive and external linear.
