Haydon Intros Size 14 Linear Actuator
Hybrid linear actuator.
Waterbury, CT — Haydon Switch & Instrument, Inc. is introducing the 35000 series (Size 14) double stack captive hybrid linear actuator. The captive linear actuator is designed with an internal anti-rotation mechanism, and is well suited for applications in which external anti-rotation methods would be difficult or impossible to employ. Captive linear travel requirements beyond a few inches may be impractical.

These hybrid linear actuators are available in a wide variety of resolutions ranging from 0.000625-in. (0.0158mm) per step to 0.005-in. (0.127mm) per step and delivers thrusts of up to 50 lbs. (222 N). They can also be microstepped for even finer resolutions. Built for superior performance, the size 14 double-stack hybrid linear actuator, uses engineering thermoplastics in the rotor drive nut and a stainless steel Acme lead screw, which has made the company's products so popular. With this patented design, quiet and maintenance-free operation is ensured as well as enhanced performance and long life (several million cycles).

Typical applications include medical equipment, semiconductor handling, valve control, X-Y tables, hand held instruments, telecommunications, or wherever precise linear or rapid motion is required. In addition to standard configurations, Haydon can custom design its products to meet specific application requirements.
