Ballscrew Magnetically-coupled Linear Drive

Ballscrew Magnetically-coupled Linear Drive

BAT Drive

The magnetically-coupled Ball Screw Actuated Linear Translator (BAT) drive has been designed for application requiring speeds in excess of 100mm/s.

Available in strokes up to 100mm and actuated using a 20mm pitch precision ballscrew.

Utilising UHV Design’s magnetic coupling technology, the BAT drive has a linear breakaway thrust of 90N. Linear speed up to 1,000mm/s (500mm/s recommended).

Key Features

  • Magnetically-coupled bellows free operation
  • Up to 100mm linear travel
  • Linear breakaway thrust: 90N
  • Linear speed: 1,000mm/s (500 mm/s recommended)
  • Exceptional reliability

Bellows free design

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.
