The ML Series are the smallest and most compact line of linear actuators offered by PBC LINEAR™. With actuator stroke lengths available up to 650 mm (25.6 in), this design incorporates feature advancements not offered by other competitors in this size range of actuators. Three (3) models are available:
- MLB – with integrated motor
- MLC – motor mount only
- MLD – hand driven knob or shaft
The distinctive outer profile of the anodized aluminum housing makes use of dovetail slots on all sides making installation quick and easy, allowing this actuator to be mounted more commonly from its underside or uniquely from its side. This feature increases the users options for mounting, highlighting its flexibility while being ideal for mounting orthogonally in gantry style applications. The dovetail slot design also helps to eliminate the potential for loose mounting by inducing tension when tightening it down with its wedge style clamping (being superior to the conventional square T-slot toe clamp), thereby holding its grip through strenuous forces and vibrations over long cycling. The actuators outer precision machined surfaces, processed through our Patent Pending process SIMO® (Simultaneous Integral Milling Operation), provide for flush mounting on any of its four sides to facilitate a qualified and clean installation.
