Mini linear actuators serve the same purposes as linear actuators do, except they are compact in size. But like their regular counterparts, a mini actuator is designed to convert energy into push-and-pull motions or linear motion. Mini actuators are commonly used for automation applications where there is little available space or the appliance is smaller in size. (read more)
A more energy efficient automation solution will not only promote lower energy consumption. It will give your company a better image, it will provide you with a safeguard against rising resource costs and through the benefit of lower operation and maintenance costs, it can help you funnel money into where you need it most.

When the industrial era began, it changed the way we thought about machines and gave birth to new concepts about automation systems. Machines were now being used to replace manual labor, and new methods of creating machines capable of doing work were being constantly developed. Many years later Bent Jensen would change the face of modern automation (read more)
When you use a custom actuator for your application, you're not wasting unused energy, you're not just installing 'good enough' systems, and you're always sure you're using the right tool for the job
If you don't find the actuator we have in stock, we can custom produce one for you. (read more)

Applications and projects may need precise motion control, meaning an actuator may need to be stopped before it has fully retracted or fully extended. Our rocker switches are high-quality, reliable mechanism which allow you to stop motion at any point along the extension and retraction. Simultaneous motion of multiple actuators is possible with these switches. (read more)
