The range of ThrustTube tubular linear motors includes modular X-Y solutions, single-rail linear motor modules, shielded modules and ironless motors. Ironless motors eliminate force fluctuations to deliver smooth motion. Shielded modules reportedly have high-performance integral bellows and are available for linear motor applications up to 4 m per second velocity and 4 G acceleration. Single-rail modules feature cross sections similar to conventional ballscrews.
