Thomson is introducing the Max Jac heavy-duty linear actuator that is designed for high performance in tough operating conditions.
Thomson's Max Jac is built to work with virtually no maintenance while maintaining accuracy in extreme conditions. It has a stainless steel adapter and extension tubes, which provide protection to IP69K. Additionally, a non-contact feedback signal assures accuracy over time and eliminates the need for recalibration. To ensure robustness, the Max Jac was subjected to rigorous testing in which it maintained performance while it withstood:
HÃ¥kan Persson, Product Line Manager at Thomson Actuators, comments: "The Max Jac offers stroke lengths from 50 to 300mm with a potential speed of 60mm/s giving a very short overall length versus stroke. Using the latest technology and best materials available, Thomson has created an electric linear actuator designed specifically for rugged use in mobile off-highway applications, for example in fertiliser or salt and sand spreaders, throttle or seeding applications, in marine, offshore, rail, mining and any other application with a large amount of wash down or exposure to aggressive substances."
The Max Jac heavy-duty linear actuator can be custom designed by Thomson engineers to fit a wide range of applications. It comes with the option of either analogue or digital encoder output, as well as self-locking worm screw or ball screw models to accommodate the demands of the specific application.
