Guided Thrusters

For use in non-rotating applications where side or moment loading may be present.

Standard Load

 Multiple Position Ball & Composite Bearing Thruster Image
Double-acting single rod end cylinder with intermediate and fully extended/retracted positions.
Ball Bearing Thruster Image
Advantages include less friction, high precision, easily accessible lubrication ports, and more.
Composite Bearing Thruster Image
With stainless guide shafts, clear anodized aluminum housing/tooling plate, composite bearings.
Extruded Linear Thruster Image
ET series extruded linear thruster is a guided actuator with cylinder integral to the thruster block.
MFD Extruded Thruster
Mead offers a collection of extruded thruster cylinders.
Movable Housing Ball & Composite Bearing Thruster Image
Offers extremely high load carrying capabilities with re-circulating or composite ball bearings.

Heavy Load

4 Shaft Ball Bearing Thruster Image
Four guide shafts, instead of the typical two, double the load carrying capacity and reduce deflection.
PneuMoment™ Pneumatic Actuator
Provides smooth, guided, non-rotational motion for carrying heavy loads and larger moments.
