Moving Coil Actuators with Built In Bearings

H2W now provides moving coil voice coil actuators with built-in bearing systems in a compact package. Previously, customers' would be required to either implement a bearing system through a stage, or make an accommodation on the envelope by trying to integrate a Moving Magnet Design. H2W has released NCC Actuators that are available from stock with strokes up to 5.2 inches, and longer strokes are...

Lower Cost Moving Magnet Designs

Typically an H2W Moving Magnet Actuator has precision bushings and shaft which cause the moving magnet design to be cost prohibitive. However not every customer requires a bushing with high tolerance precision, and thus H2W has the ability to modify the linear bearing systems of our voice coil designs to accommodate a lower cost bushing and shaft. The pictured actuator has a custom shaft and...
