Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions (Waterbury, CT) offers a 36-mm G4
linear actuator that includes an adapter plate that allows the smaller 36-
mm OD unit to replace 42-mm and 46-mm units in existing applications
using the same bolt pattern and pilot surface. The actuator design utilizes
optimized teeth geometry along with high-energy neodymium magnets,
resulting in a higher continuous force output in a small package. It
incorporates custom-engineered plastics and larger bearings for greater
rotor support and higher axial load capability. The actuator is suited for
a range of 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, Non-Captive, and External Linear.
