Linear Motors

Powerful and Precise Linear Motion

Moog's linear motors offer dynamic and precise linear motion positioning for robotics, factory automation, processing, packaging and other industrial applications. As a high force, direct drive solution, Moog's linear motors extend maintenance intervals and reduce the cost of ownership of any linear motion system. Other common names for linear motors include linear servos, brushless motors, or linear servo motors.

Features of Linear Motors

  • Encoders with 0.1 μm resolution, optical and Hall types available
  • High force motors up to 4,500 lbf [20 kN] force
  • Light duty motors for lower force applications with same durable and rugged construction
  • Fan cooled and liquid cooled options for maximum performance
  • Custom designs for any application
  • Available as a component in a complete system solution that includes brushless linear motors, drives, motion controllers, cabling, filters and accessories

Benefits of Linear Motors

  • Maximize positional accuracy while minimizing maintenance costs
  • Easy installation
  • Rugged and durable design with a single moving part ensures consistent and dependable operation
  • Long lasting operation for years of service with minimal downtime
