Haydon Switch & Instrument Inc. announces three new metric strokes of 18mm, 25mm, and 31mm that are now available on the Z26000 captive linear actuators. These new extended travels are in addition to the Z26000 series that is offered with a 1/2" of travel. This extends the use of the Z26000 to applications that have almost three times the previously allowed stroke. This new extended travel offering is available in a wide variety of resolutions ranging from 0.0127mm to 0.1016mm per step and offers up to 4.5kg of force. Providing a solution for linear movement, OEM’s can reduce components and simplify designs by replacing rotary motors which generate linear movement through belts and pulleys or rack and pinions with the Z26000. All Z series linear actuators are designed for low or high volume applications. Typical applications include medical devices, small machinery, instrumentation and applications where precise linear motion is required.
