Compact Actuators for Linear Motion


Combining StepSERVO™ Integrated Motors and high precision screws for accuracy and convenience

Full closed loop servo positioning and force control
On-board motion control with Q Programming
Greater torque than conventional step motor-based linear actuators
Quiet, high efficiency operation
Precision, low backlash ball screws and lead screws with anti-backlash nuts
Customizable stroke lengths, leads, end machining and nuts to meet exact requirements

Built on StepSERVO™ Technology

TBSM11 Linear Actuators are built upon standard TSM11 StepSERVO™ Integrated Motors, The Next Evolution in Step Motor Technology. These integrated motors provide greater torque, higher efficiency, and better accuracy than conventional open loop step motors. They feature fully programmable, on-board motion control using Applied Motion Products’ Q Programming language, which allows them to operate as stand-alone axes with motion profiles stored in non-volatile memory. RS-485 communication ports enable network connections for multiple axes. To create a TBSM11 Linear Actuator the shaft of a standard TSM11 integrated motor is replaced with a precision ball screw (or lead screw) and nut assembly. The result is a compact, linear positioning device with full closed loop servo control and on-board motion control.

Eliminate couplings and save space
Closed loop, linear positioning in a small footprint
More than 20 lbf of thrust force
Position resolution of 0.005 mm (per full step)

Precision Screws

Applied Motion Products works with leading providers to source high precision ball screws, lead screws and nuts. With screw diameters up to 6 mm, TBSM11 Linear Actuators can be customized with a wide range of stroke lengths, leads, end machinging, and nut configurations including anti-backlash nuts. Screws tailored to your exact requirements mean you get the right actuator for your application.

Leads starting at 1 mm/rev
Repeatibility starting at ±0.02 mm
