AutomationDirect’s SureMotion line of motion control products now 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.
Twin round-shaft slide actuators feature a continuously-supported round rail slide with ball screw actuation and provide robust precision linear motion. Models are available with 12-inch and 24-inch travel distances and are designed for positioning systems and heavy loads. Ready to connect to a NEMA 23 size motor, twin round shaft actuators start at $2,399.00.
Compact slide actuators are self-contained and designed for light loads in harsh or wet conditions in a very small package. Fitted with end-of-travel switch mounts, and ready for a NEMA 17 size motor connection, the units also feature a stainless steel lead screw embedded in a hard-coated aluminum shaft specially machined to match sliding elements. With prices starting at $1,129.00, compact slide actuators are available with travel distances ranging from six inches to 36 inches and travel speeds up to 20 inches per second.
LAVL series value linear slide actuators (starting at $789.00) are low-cost units using the latest in sliding element technology. Designed to fit NEMA 17 size motors, units are constructed with hard-coated aluminum guide shafts and a stainless steel lead screw; this versatile unit can be mounted horizontally, vertically, or inverted without loss of load capacity. Ideal for X-Y-Z- positioning systems in harsh or wet environments, LAVL series value linear actuators are available with travel distances ranging from 6 inches to 24 inches.
Round-shaft sliding elements, starting at $269.00, can be combined with other elements to build a huge variety of machine mechanisms. Available in both end- and continuously-supported shafts, elements feature linear ball bearings, carbon-steel shafts and high-quality clear anodized aluminum blocks.
