Glideforce Industrial-Duty (ID) Linear Actuators

The Industrial-Duty (ID) series of Glideforce linear actuators by Concentric International (formerly Iowa Export-Import) are powerful 12V DC gearmotors that use a worm drive to move a shaft back and forth along its length. The worm drive ensures that the shaft will hold its position even when unpowered. Versions are available with an acme screw drive (part number LACTx-500Ax), which can move loads up to 250 kgf [550 lbs or 2500 N] and withstand static loads up to 450 kgf [1000 lbs or 4500 N], or an efficient ball screw drive (part number LACTx-1000Bx), which can move loads up to 450 kgf [1000 lbs or 4500 N] and withstand static loads up to 1360 kgf [3000 lbs or 13,600 N].

Two limit switches safely stop the motor at either end of its range, while integrated diodes allow it to reverse direction after reaching a limit point if the supplied voltage is reversed, and a built-in overload clutch protects the actuator from excessive dynamic loads. The actuators have an all-steel frame and extension tube, and the entire case is sealed to protect against dust and water (rated IP65).

These actuators are available in a variety of stroke lengths, from 4″ to 24″, and with optional potentiometers that are linked to the shaft position, for use in feedback systems:

This 12 V industrial-duty (ID) linear actuator uses an acme screw drive to lift loads up to 250 kgf [550 lbs or 2500 N] and withstand static loads up to 450 kgf [1000 lbs or 4500 N]. It has a maximum speed of 16.8 mm/s [0.66″/s] at no load and 14.3 mm/s [0.56″/s] at the maximum load. Limit switches at each end make the actuator easy to control over its full range of motion, and an overload clutch protects the actuator from being damaged by excessive loads. A worm drive ensures that the shaft will hold its position even when unpowered. This version has a 4-inch stroke and a feedback potentiometer that lets you determine where the actuator is in its stroke.
