ALS50000 Custom Linear Positioner


Design Features

  • Includes air cooling ports for continuous operation
  • Max speed 3 m/s, max acceleration 5 g with 5 kg payload
  • Load capacity 150 kg, moving mass 70 kg
  • Force 8000 N peak, 1400 N continuous
  • 2 m travel, 1.8 m travel at max acceleration and speed
  • Accuracy ±2 µm calibrated, ±50 µm uncalibrated
The high force, high load, linear motor actuator is used for aerospace testing, automated manufacturing, and motion simulation applications. The granite structure, high-force motors, and precise recirculating bearings give exceptional motion profile capability with up to a 150 kg load capacity.

  1. Available with Aerotech controllers.
  2. Speed and acceleration based on 5 kg load.
  3. 10 ms sample rate.
  4. Maximum load based on bearing capability. Maximum application load may be limited by acceleration requirements.
  5. Specifications are for single-axis systems measured 25 mm above the tabletop. Performance of multi-axis systems is payload and work-point dependent. Consult factory for multi-axis or non-standard applications.

  6. Note: To ensure the achievement and repeatability of the specifications over an extended period of time, environmental temperature must be controlled to within 0.25°C/24 hours. If this is not possible, alternate products are available. Please consult Aerotech Sales Engineering for more information.
