Precision linear actuators are designed to deliver high performance in applications requiring continuous duty operation. They provide the highest thrust and speed of any electric actuator and allow you to design more compact machinery with maximum throughput. Often chosen as a clean and efficient alternative to fluid power solutions, precision linear actuators draw energy only on demand and operate more quietly than pneumatics.  To suit your specific application, Thomson offers the longest stroke lengths in the industry, a simple and reliable RediMount™ system to mount your own motor, and product customization options.
