PARKER Hannifin's new PROmech Series linear actuators are designed for OEM instrument manufacturers working to speed their time to market and reduce the overall installed cost for linear motion axes.
Available from Motion Solutions Australia , the PROmech Series actuators come completely assembled and tested and include linear bearings, drive screw, thrust bearings, motor mount, coupling and motor. The LP28 and LD28 are the first in the series to be released.
PROmech Series actuators are a pre-engineered positioning package, therefore OEMs can significantly reduce their time to market with minimised design, procurement, assembly and qualification of all the parts necessary to build a linear motion axis from scratch.
Moreover, OEMs can reduce manufacturing costs and assembly time with preassembled PROmech Series actuators.
With "build it yourself" linear axes, all the different parts required to build the axes must be ordered, tracked, received, inventoried, assembled and tested.
The PROmech Series is a pre-tested, single-piece solution. Both the LP28 and the LD28 have a miniature cross section of only 28mm x 28mm.
The PROmech Series LP28 linear positioner is a complete linear motion solution OEMs can afford to design into their high-volume equipment.
With a travel range from 5mm to 500mm, the LP28 has several linear bearing options and a variety of screw-lead and motor-size options to easily match the positioner to the application requirements.
The LP28 may also be fitted with an optional strip seal and home and limit sensors. This compact positioner is ideal for positioning payloads up to 10lb.
The PROmech Series LD28 is a complete linear actuator solution that offers greater screw and motor design flexibility, enabling OEMs to pursue optimal solutions for their applications. It offers a travel range from 5mm to 300mm and has a variety of screw-lead and motor-size options to easily match the actuator to application requirements.
The LD28 is ideal for thrusting applications requiring up to 10lb of thrust.
