Application Examples

These common applications show that stepper motor linear actuators reduce the total number of components in your design, while minimizing space requirements, and making assembly and maintenance quicker and easier. Examples are shown for all three configurations - rotating screw (MLS), rotating nut (MLN) and actuator (MLA).


Tiny, precise, repeatable vertical motion is essential for accurate pipetting. Choose MLA to simplify your z-axis and MLS for precise, horizontal motion in pipetting applications.

Plate Positioning

Actuator assemblies are self contained and ideal for simplified, leveling applications where small radial or moment loads may be present.

Fluid Pumps

Regardless of the mounting configuration, a stepper motor linear actuator can increase pump pressure, reduce equipment footprint and more accurately disperse fluid.

XY Stage

Stepper motor linear actuators optimize XY stage designs with their compactness and power.

Cameras and other measurement devices need to be in just the right place at just the right time. MLN delivers reliable horizontal positioning and length selections to get your horizontal positioning job done right.

3D Printers

Utilizing a stepper motor linear actuator on a 3D printer can eliminate the need for couplings, bearings and supports while increasing stroke length and print volume.

Monitor Tilting

Angle adjustment is made simple when the MLA configuration is applied in monitor and plate tilting applications.
