Bellows sealed linear actuators | FAB drives

Designed to support the next generation of beamline diagnostic devices that require speed and precision, the bellows sealed FAB drive is capable of speeds up to 1,000mm/s with exceptional reliability for strokes up to 100mm. See the drive in action in the video below.

Working in collaboration with light sources in the Americas and Europe, we have designed the FAB drive to be customised to match specific encoder and wiring standards, simplifying the installation and commissioning process.

Key Features

  • Range of mounting flange options including CF35, 64 and 100.
  • Bellows guaranteed for 50,000 cycles with options to upgrade to 500,000 and 1 million cycles.
  • Precision industrial ball screw translator for exceptional reliability.
  • Customisation options for switches, encoders and wiring to match facility standards.
  • Speeds up to 1,000 mm/s.

Speed and precision

Beamline diagnostic developments are requiring faster actuation speeds without compromising on precision or repeatabilty.  In response, we have created the FAB drive utilising a precision ball screw, high torque motor and linear potentiometer to deliver the required performance.

In addition to the technical performance we work closely with our customers to match any switch, encoder, motor and wiring preference on our actuators to make it as easy as possible to install and commission.

Customisation options include:

  • Motor and gearbox
  • Encoder or linear potentiometer
  • Wiring standards and choice of connectors
  • Limit and home switches

We are always happy to discuss any other requirement you may have.
