ElectroCraft, Inc. Expands the AxialPower™ Family of Linear Actuators with the APES 17

This new linear actuator is highly configurable and available with a variety of imperial or metric leadscrew options with resolutions ranging from 0.006 mm to 0.050 mm per step, with an incredible output force of up to 1001 N (225 lbs.). The APES 17 offers 40% more force than competitive size 17 designs.

Stratham, New Hampshire - July 23, 2020 - ElectroCraft, Inc., the global fractional horsepower motor and motion solutions provider, has expanded its linear actuator lineup for the AxialPower™ family with the APES17.


ElectroCraft has recently expanded the AxialPower™ Enhanced Series of Linear Actuators to include a new high-performance 42mm (NEMA 17) frame size. This new linear actuator is highly configurable and available with a variety of imperial or metric leadscrew options with resolutions ranging from 0.006 mm to 0.050 mm per step, with an incredible output force of up to 1001 N (225 lbs.). The APES 17 offers 40% more force than competitive size 17 designs.

ElectroCraft hybrid stepper-based linear actuators provide original equipment manufacturers the precision, performance and reliability that is needed for a wide variety of motion control positioning applications. From medical and laboratory equipment to industrial machinery, ElectroCraft offers configurable to completely customizable solutions in three unique product designs: linear actuator (non-captive), leadscrew motor (external linear) or guided linear actuator (captive).

"ElectroCraft's unique motor, shaft and insert designs offer industry-leading linear force per frame size while providing superior precision, speed and efficiency," notes Scott Rohlfs, Director of Product Marketing, "These new actuators are ideal for a wide variety of medical and laboratory applications including precision metering pumps, mass spectrometers, gas & liquid chromatography systems, medical imaging systems, sample handling and dispensing systems, allowing equipment manufacturers to reduce product footprints while significantly increasing performance."

ElectroCraft's AxialPower™ family of linear actuator products are available in the most popular frame sizes, including 28mm (NEMA 11), 42mm (NEMA 17), 56mm (NEMA 23), and 86mm (NEMA 34).

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
