Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions released the next version of its 36mm G4 linear actuator, which includes a special adapter plate that allows the smaller OD unit to replace 42mm and 46mm units in existing applications. With a force output range of 70N to 260N (16lb to 58lb), the G4 utilizes optimized teeth geometry along with high-energy neodymium magnets, resulting in 20% higher output force across the entire speed range. It also incorporates custom-engineered plastics and larger bearings for greater rotor support and higher axial load capability. As with other Haydon stepper motor line actuators, three configurations are available: Captive, Non-Captive, and External Linear.
