ETEL now offers short stroke actuators in North America. These reliable Z Standalone Actuators are to be used in any application where force, throughput and long lifetime are required within a small form factor.
These actuators are said to cope with the stringent requirements of Turret Testing Handlers, providing an average of ten independent Z axes for a single machine. Nevertheless, ETEL’s short stroke actuators are suitable for all applications requiring pure axial movement over a short stroke, especially when high dynamics and a small footprint are key requirements, such as touch pad calibration, chip shooters and die ejectors.
Teflon-coated plain bearings offer a long lifetime with low friction, while keeping costs low. A low overall number of parts, plastic injected covers and automated production all contribute to cost effectiveness.
ETEL’s short stroke actuators are also designed for high performance. Despite the small form factor, these actuators are capable of providing a peak force of up to 120N and a continuous force of up to 30N. With acceleration up to 30g and speeds up to 1 m/s, the Z Standalone Actuator can handle almost any application requiring high dynamics.
The advantages offered by ETEL Z Standalone Actuators include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Optimized Form Factor
- Built-in Gravity Compensator
- Highly Accurate Force Control Capabilities
- High Dynamics
- Long Lifetime
- Multiple Degrees of Freedom
