It is suited for spaceconstrained multiaxis configurations because the motor and cables remain fixed, minimizing the moving mass to just the load and aluminum profile. The toothed-belt driven actuator has an internal recirculating ball-bearing guide and comes in two mounting configurations. The unit offers speeds to 3 m/sec, repeatability of ±0.05 mm, stroke lengths to one meter, and sizes of 18, 25, and 40 mm.
