July 31, 2013 – For use in operations where cleanliness is a priority, Zero-Max offers Roh’lix linear actuators made from stainless steel. Used to convert rotary motion to linear travel, Roh’lix linear actuators carry loads at speeds up to 70 in./s, depending on size. Suitable for positioning operations in all types of machinery, these actuators feature overload protection, which allows for thrust capacity adjustment: linear travel will halt when the preset thrust is exceeded. The actuators consist of three stainless steel ball bearings (which are replaceable) at each end of a two-piece stainless steel housing. Mounted at an angle to the drive axis, the six-bearing design converts drive shaft rotation into proportional linear travel.
