ETT Series - Electric Tubular Motors

ETT is a direct thrust linear motor actuator, ideally suited for all kind of linear handling and pick & place applications. It is a cost-effective and energy-efficient alternative to pneumatic cylinders in applications that demand greater flexibility and control.

The ETT‘s linear motion is directly generated without the need for mechanical transmission elements like ball screws, toothed belts and gearboxes. The tubular motor has two main components; the rod (shaft) and the stator with the integrated feedback (body). The shaft is made of a stainless steel tube with built in neodymium magnets, that thanks to their high performance, are able to deliver significant thrust values up to 474 N. The main body comprises the stator winding, the feedback electronics and high performance bearings. A major benefit of the ETT design is that long and/or heavy duty cycles are possible without additional cooling. The IP67 protection class allows the ETT tubular motor to be used even under harsh environmental conditions.

  • Ultra dynamic linear motion and position control capabilities
  • Ideally suited for pneumatic substitution where greater position control capabilities are required
  • Three lengths and three sizes meeting the requirements of the pneumatic ISO flange standard (DIN ISO 15552:2005-12) for simplified mechanical integration
  • Swivelling electrical connectors and extensive accessory options allow flexible mounting
  • Reduced mechanical complexity delivers high energy efficiency and reduces maintenance
  • AISI304 stainless steel shaft allows it's use in "clean" environments
  • High thermal efficiency improves reliability and increases mechanical life
  • Wide choice of rod end mounting options, including swivel rod eye, increases flexibility
