SIMO Series

Linear Actuator Technology

The SIMO® Series enables multiple application requirements to be met with a single platform. Flexible with a uniform geometry as a base with a large number of selectable options in the basic design, drive type and type of guide. The mix and match platform within the same design environment allows configurations to be easily and quickly adjusted.

The SIMO Series: Design It Your Way

Do I need a low profile rail or a structural support rail?

Rail Heights Options:

Each aluminum base rail is uniquely qualified with the SIMO process (Simultaneous Integral Milling Operation).

  • UGA low profile for tight spaces
  • UGT tall profile for greater structural integrity
UGA low profile for tight spaces
UGA low profile for tight spaces
UGT tall profile for greater structural integrity
UGT tall profile for greater structural integrity

The SIMO Series: Drive Type Selection

Lead Screw Driven System

  • Utilizes a self-lubricating and maintenance free nut
  • Standard fixed nut or Constant Force anti-backlash nut available
  • Lead screw material:
    – 10 mm diameter
    – 300 series stainless steel with PTFE coating
    – 1, 2, 5, 10, 16 mm leads most common
    – Other leads available – consult factory

Belt Drive System

Horizontal Motor Mount

  • Horizontal motor mount available in the tall profile (UGT) only
  • Ideal for higher speed, high duty cycle applications
  • Belt material: nylon covered, fiberglass reinforced, neoprene
  • Temperature range: 0° C to +80° C (32° F to 176° F)
  • Rounded GT®2 tooth design creates better engagement with the pulley resulting in greater torque transfer, reduced vibration, and extended life

Belt Drive System

Vertical Motor Mount

  • Vertical motor mount allows for high speed performance in the (UGA) low profile rail
  • Consult factory for (UGT) tall rail with vertical motor mount
  • Belt material: nylon covered, fiberglass reinforced, neoprene
  • Temperature range: 0° C to +80° C (-32° F to +176° F)
  • Rounded GT®2 tooth design creates better engagement with the pulley resulting in greater torque transfer, reduced vibration, and extended life
