Redesigned Bug Linear Actuators

Offers improved strength, percision, reliability

The Bug series of linear actuators from Ultra Motion has been redesigned to offer improved strength, precision and reliability; while keeping the same compact footprint. Because of its small footprint, low weight and high performance the Bug series is an ideal alternative to a pneumatic or hydraulic system. New features of the redesigned Bug series of linear actuators include: ABEC-7 angular contact bearings, and interchangeable motor mounting plates.

The addition of the ABEC-7 angular contact bearings has resulted in longer life, improved strength, reliability, and precision.

A Kevlar drive belt and pulleys provides 1:1, 2:1, 3:1, 4:1, and 5:1 drive ratios with low backlash and low audible noise by eliminating gears between the motor and the drive screw. There are 17 motor options including: dc, dc Servo, dc gearmotors, Steppers and Animatic "Smart Motors."

Bug Series linear actuators are permanently lubricated for maintenance-free life, and sealed so that they are environmentally safe and cleanroom compatible.
