Fully Electric – Magnetic linear actuator for instant on motion and force

The LA Series of actuators by CTW Automation is the ultimate in high performance linear motion that puts wave form creation and the resulting data collection at your fingertips; quickly, easily and in a repeatable fashion. While sine waves are standard, the LA allows for “any wave form” drive profiles allowing you to attain a better view into your testing world. From square, to triangle, sine on sine, frequency sweeps and stepped input; this platform lets you do it all. And because of the actuation methodology, coupled to the advanced motion controller, motion will be as requested and at a lower operating temperature and lower audible level.
