Actuators, A Sum Of Their Parts
Bimba’s OLE actuators are available in strokes up to 18”, thrusts to 350 pounds, and speeds to 24” per second. According to the company, they benefit from a flexible modular design, a massive bronze rod bearing, a custom motor coupler, and more. A special composite, self-lubricating nut provides high load capacity and speed while keeping noise low. In addition, a dual angular load bearing absorbs axial forces when they ges to the motor, facilitating the use of any manufacturer’s stepper or server. A Rulon wear strip provides linear position movement, limited side load protection, and low friction.
