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.
