Linear Voice Coil Actuators (VCA)

Cylindrical Frameless Linear Voice Coil Actuators (VCA)
Cylindrical frameless voice coil actuators are the most basic model of linear VCAs, but also the most cost effective and versatile. They are available in both moving coil and moving magnet designs, and have the longest operational life of our VCAs.
Cylindrical Semi-housed Linear Voice Coil Actuators (VCA)
Semi-housed voice coil actuators improve upon the frameless VCA design by adding a shaft and self-aligning bushings, along with an improved high flex wire.
Cylindrical Housed Linear Voice Coil Actuators (VCA)
Housed voice coil actuators are fully encapsulated and among the easiest VCA’s to integrate into a customer’s system, as they do not require an alignment system.
Cylindrical Housed Linear Voice Coil Actuators (VCA) with an Integrated Sensor

Cylindrica Housed  Linear VCA with an integrated sensor enables the customer to close the loop on their actuation system, allowing them to directly control the velocity, position, acceleration and/or oscillation of the actuators shaft.

Rectangular Linear Voice Coil Actuators (VCA)
Rectangular voice coil actuators are the only non-cylindrical model of linear VCAs. They are ideal for long stroke and high force applications, and can be shaped to fit into tight or thin systems with ease.
