Norgren ELION Rodless Actuators

Norgren ELION

Rodless Actuators

Available to Bimba distributors upon request, the rodless electromechanical linear actuators are available in two drive options - toothbelt and ball screw. The toothbelt drive provides the highest speeds and longest strokes, and the ball screw drive is capable of moving higher loads with extremely accurate and repeatable positioning.

  • Accurate and Repeatable
    Drive technologies and servo motor provides accurate and repeatable positioning.
  • High Speed & Fast Response
    Toothbelt allows fast acceleration and highly dynamic control with speeds of up to 10 m/s.
  • Tolerates Offset Loads
    Internal guidance system counteracts load moments.
  • High Load Capability
    Precision ball screw and ball screw nut can withstand high loads..
  • Performance Monitoring
    Integral motor sensors and external switches with IO-Link capability monitor actuator performance and enable planned maintenance.
  • Safety in Service
    Servo motor with optional integrated holding brake enables actuators to self-lock when the power is isolated
  • Resistant to the Environment
    Cover strip protects drive mechanisms from environmental factors. Carriage wipers remove contamination and guidance system is protected inside the actuator.
  • Smart Configurations
    Online configurator enables quick and easy product selection based upon customer application input.

Application Configurator

Our intuitive, easy to use online configuration tool gives you the flexibility to specify the correct actuator for your requirements.

You are able to configure using application attributes such as distance, load and speed; and product attributes such as size, stroke length and mountings.

White Paper

Specifying the best actuation solution is often complicated for manufacturers, who need to understand both their application and the most cost effective, energy efficient solution.

Our whitepaper features a handy checklist to ensure you can confidently select the best solution, be it electric or pneumatic.

CAD Configurator

If you know the product you need, then our CAD Configurator allows you to configure using product attributes, add mountings and accessories and download your configuration in your native CAD format.

We support 60+ native CAD formats including AutoCAD, SolidWorks, Pro/Engineer, NX and Catia.
