Product Details Supplier Info More products

Thomson’s compact T60 precision linear actuator (PLA) has been designed to cater for industrial applications, including process automation, food production, electronics and pharmaceutical manufacturing and packaging.

The T60 drives static loads of up to 10kN over a stroke length of 1.5m and permits Y- and Z-axis loads of up to 100N.

A travel speed of 2.5m/sec, repeatability of ±0.05mm and backlash of 0.11mm make the T60 suitable for installation in pick-and-place systems.

The T60 is also suitable for use in harsh environments such as food packaging facilities, with IP65-rated protection against dirt ingress.

Key benefits

  • The standard unit can be subjected to extended rinsing processes without compromising operation performance.
  • Special lubricants are available for hygienic applications.
  • An operating temperature of -20ºC to +70ºC makes the T60 suitable for use in controlled food processing environments and in thermoforming applications.
  • The actuators, which offer high power and stroke length, can be used in place of pneumatic or hydraulic drive systems.
  • A more precise degree of control is said to be achieved by using electrical drives.
  • Electrical actuation is also claimed to be more efficient because electrical drives only consume power on demand and do not consume energy in ‘standby mode’.
  • A central lubrication service point facilitates maintenance.
  • A range of flanges makes it possible to use a variety of available drive motors.
