Rodless electric actuators

Norgren ELION Rodless Electric Actuators

Rodless electromechanical linear actuators are available in two drive options - toothbelt and ball screw. The toothbelt drive provides the highest speeds and longest strokes, and the ball screw drive is capable of moving higher loads with extremely accurate and repeatable positioning.

  • Accurate and Repeatable - Drive technologies and servo motor provides accurate and repeatable positioning.

  • High Speed & Fast Response - Toothbelt allows fast acceleration and highly dynamic control with speeds of up to 10 m/s.

  • Tolerates Offset Loads - Internal guidance system counteracts load moments.

  • High Load Capability - Precision ball screw and ball screw nut can withstand high loads.

  • Performance Monitoring - Integral motor sensors and external switches with IO-Link capability monitor actuator performance and enable planned maintenance.

  • Safety in Service - Servo motor with optional integrated holding brake enables actuators to self-lock when the power is isolated

  • Resistant to the Environment - Cover strip protects drive mechanisms from environmental factors. Carriage wipers remove contamination and guidance system is protected inside the actuator.

  • Smart Configurations - Online configurator enables quick and easy product selection based upon customer application input.
