Rugged electromagentic linear actuators tolerate harsh operating conditions

SKF USA introduced Jaeger-brand IMD3 Series electromechanical linear actuators. The company says these actuators have been engineered to run quietly and deliver longer service life for a wide range of industrial actuation applications. Enhanced corrosion resistance and rugged construction contribute to reliable performance even under the most demanding or harsh operating conditions.


Bethlehem, PA SKF USA introduced Jaeger-brand IMD3 Series electromechanical linear actuators .itions.
The linear actuators operate on 12 V dc and 24 V dc, weigh 1.5 kg, and can accommodate loads ranging from 120 N to 1,000 N. Standard stroke lengths range from 50 mm to 300 mm. Full-load speeds up to 45 mm/sec can be achieved, depending on load capacity and gear ratio. Their short retracted length suits applications where space is minimal.
The company says the units’ construction includes aluminum outer tube, zinc allow housing, aluminum extension inner tube, powder metal gears, and built-in integrated limit switches preset at the factory. All models benefit from lubrication designed to extend service life.
Users can specify an optional potentiometer sensor and otherwise customize the actuators to satisfy particular application requirements. Application support is available. IMD3 linear actuators comply with IP53, and an optional IP65 version can be ordered.
