Interactive Web Site Offers Easy Actuator Sourcing 

Melody Lee

Specifiers of precision linear actuators may benefit from the interactive Web site launched by Ultra Motion (Mattituck, NY), a supplier of high-precision, custom linear actuators. Web-site visitors can select a motor and lead screw for the Digit series of linear actuators, or motor, lead screw, and belt-drive ratio for the Bug series, and generate a force and speed curve on-line. Being able to configure an actuator and evaluate its performance on-line saves the customer time, and also takes the guesswork out of identifying a product to meet the application's requirements. 

"The Web site is well suited to the product," says Don Wismann of the company's marketing agency. "Companies that need a few or 100 units quickly can go to the site and pretty much design the product and have it supplied with a quick turnaround time." 
The Web site features the variety of Acme, ball, and zero-backlash lead screws that could be used with a selection of stepper motors, dc servos, and "smart" steppers and servos. Comprehensive outline drawings in various computer-aided drawing formats and PDFs of two actuator styles, the nose, end, and mounting hardware aid in the integration of the products.

The company specializes in custom high-precision electromechanical mini linear actuators and matching controllers suitable for hydraulic and pneumatic systems.
