Bishop-Wisecarver has introduced the HepcoMotion PSD80 profile screw driven linear actuator to meet the need for a cost-effective, Z-axis solution in light-load applications such as pick-and-place and assembly operations. Housed on a high-strength aluminum beam and fitted with a stainless steel sealing band, the actuator uses high-efficiency Herculane wheels mounted to an adjustable carriage, offering long life and no re-lubrication. Single or multiple carriages on a unit are possible and can handle loads to 500 N. The item is supplied as a closed or open format. A corrosion-resistant version is available, as well as a double-acting version for applications that require symmetrical movement from opposing carriages.
