MMP Releases Unique 12V DC Linear Actuator

Midwest Motion Products, Inc, of Howard Lake, MN, is pleased to announce the release of the Model MMP LA3-12V-5-A-SP-100 Linear Actuator. Unlike most other ‘light-duty’ actuators, which use a Delrin drive gear pinion, this new design from MMP utilizes an ‘All-Steel” drive pinion, thereby increasing the force capacity, while maintaining the 5:1 Reduction Ratio which allows the unit to maintain a rapid 2” per second stroke speed. Despite this more robust design, the unit still maintains a relatively low noise profile, and an “IP65” protection rating against the ingress of moisture and other contaminants. The stroke length for the design is 4” overall, but the Company also offers the same design with 2”, 6”, 8”, 10” and 12” Stroke lengths. The MMP-LA3 Series Actuators feature 8mm diameter clevis mounts on both ends, and built-in limit switches for both (full extend and full retract) ends of travel. The operating temperature rating range is from –26°C to +65°C. An acme screw drive allows for a 517 Lbs of Static Load, while the unit boasts a 45 Pound Dynamic Load Rating.

Typical uses for this unique design include:

  • Power Step for RV’s and 4x4 Vehicles

  • Door Opening/Closing

  • Valve Actuation

  • Gate Open & Close

  • Louver Actuation

  • Packaging Machinery

  • Conveyor Equipment

  • Tool Changers

  • Medical, Mobility & Accessibility Equipment
