Custom Stepper Motor Linear Actuators

Stepper motor linear actuators customization options

While the full selection of standard Thomson stepper motor linear actuators continues to meet the needs of countless linear motion designs, some applications’ requirements call for these products to be customized. No matter the configuration (rotating screw [MLS], rotating nut [MLN] or actuator [MLA]), our custom stepper motor linear actuators deliver the optimal balance of performance, life and installed cost, and provide great flexibility to help you achieve a “just-right” solution.

Our experienced engineers can assist you to ensure your part selection is right the first time, while our support staff oversees proper initial application and comprehensive support once installed.
