Stainless Steel Modular Linear Actuator SeriesThe Stainless Steel Modular Linear Actuator Series (QLZE / QSZE / QST-KE) Positioning System is engineered with a stainless steel cover band that wraps over the square aluminum profiles, which creates an optimal solution to combat caustic wash-down issues (acid solvent/acid bath cleaning). The stainless steel housing sheet (thickness 0.37mm, material 1.4301) protects the aluminum profile from exposure to damage due to clogging and pitting, thus protecting the deep structures of the extrusion and extending the system’s life. The stainless steel design requires no bellows to cover the extrusion which typically wears out over time.
The Stainless Steel Modular Linear Actuator Series is suited for meeting the extreme usage and hygienic requirements of the pharmaceutical/medical, clean room, food/beverage, packaging and petrochemical industries; notably pick-and-place gantry applications. Customized to customer specification from the company’s standard line and available in ball screw and belt drive options, the linear actuator series is available in a number of sizes (60 / 80 / 100) and provides an exceptional performance solution for precision and commercial caustic wash-down applications.
The standard single-carriage linear actuators offer push-pull type directional loading that can handle dynamic maximum capacity carry loads up to 1,600 lbs of force and maximum thrust loads up to 1,100 lbs of force.
Fully assembled and configurable with Nook motors (ac/dc/servo/stepper) and stainless steel hardware including pulleys, limit switches, end mounts, etc., the standard fitting position of each in the series offers maximum stroke-lengths of 3,000 mm (without joints).
QLZE: ROLLER GUIDED Square aluminum profile with an integrated roller guide covered by a stainless steel sheet. The carriage is driven by a timing belt. This device can also be used for symmetrical adjustment of two or more linear actuator units running parallel. This linear unit is based on the QLZ and is suitable for application in clean rooms of clean-room classification 1000 (corresponding to US Fed. Standard 209 E).
QSZE: PROFILE RAIL GUIDED Square aluminum profile with an integrated ball rail guide covered by a stainless steel sheet. The carriage is moved by a belt drive. This device can also be used for symmetrical adjustment of two or more linear units running parallel.
QST/KE: ACME-BALL SCREW DRIVEN / PROFILE RAIL GUIDED Square aluminum profile with an integrated ball rail covered by a stainless steel sheet. The carriage is driven by means of a rotating spindle with leading nut. The openings of the guide body are sealed by a stainless steel cover band to protect the drive from splash water and dust.
