The ACT140DL is a high performance, cost-effective, linear-servomotor-driven actuator that is faster and more accurate than a ball screw or belt-drive without the costly, time-consuming maintenance required. Since the ACT140DL is an integrated, assembled mechanical system, it eliminates the design complexity and guesswork in choosing and assembling individual components. The ACT is ideal for applications including assembly, pick and place machines, electronic assembly and qualification, packaging, vision inspection, dispensing, life sciences, image scanning and processing and inkjet printing.
Linear Motor Drive
Aerotech’s high-power, cog-free linear motors drive the ACT series in no load conditions to accelerations of 5 g and a top speed of 5 m/s, enabling the ideal solution to increase throughput. The stiff mechanical structure of the actuator allows for excellent dynamic performance and reduced settling times. The non-magnetic forcer coil provides high force with zero cogging for super-smooth velocity and position control. This zero cogging design is ideal for applications requiring outstanding contour accuracy and smooth velocity profiling. As with all Aerotech linear motor stages, the linear motor has zero backlash, no windup, zero friction and outstanding system responsiveness.
