Nanotec Launches new L20 Miniature Linear Actuator
Nanotec Electronic GmbH & Co. KG
The increasing demand for small, compact yet powerful linear drive units is being met by Nanotec Electronic GmbH & Co. KG with the new L20 linear actuator. What is currently the smallest model in the extensive product portfolio from the renowned step motor manufacturer, in common with the larger motors in the range, combines a threaded bush made from the high performance plasticpolyetheretherketon and a high-torque motor. The L20 achieves a feed speed of up to 40 mm/sec., and the thrust is up to 40 N. Spindle pitches of up to 1 mm are possible with the L20 linear actuators. Corresponding stainless steel lead screws are available in various lengths. The axial play of the shaft can be easily set using an adjusting nut on the front bearing flange. The standard resolution is 0.005 mm, and even lower resolutions down to 0.001 are possible together with a closed loop-compatible control and an encoder. The L20 will be shown at COMPAMED 2011.
