A hardened steel master reference surface is provided along the side of the stage to allow fixturing or other tooling elements to be precisely aligned with the actual travel path. Dowel pin holes are provided on the carriage top for repeatable mounting or tooling. Also available are custom features such as a steel body design, vacuum prepped units, and anti cage creep bearings for high dynamic applications up to 150mm travel.

xfc series

Parker’s XFC Series an Extreme Force Electric Thrust Cylinder featuring roller screw, drive technology. This industrially hardened cylinder product utilizes an all steel construction and is manufactured to standard metric hydraulic tie rod design. The resulting cylinder offers significantly greater levels of control in addition to being an energy efficient fluid power substitute. Utilizing roller screw technology allows the XFC to achieve far greater thrust capacities than typical electric cylinders; a maximum thrust up to 356,000N (80,000lbs). The key to the roller screw is the utilization of planetary rollers in place of typical ball bearings providing an increased number of contact surfaces between the screw shaft and the roller nut, yielding greater stiffness and load capacity and making it ideal for shock loading applications.

ripped ironcore

Parker RIPPED ironcore linear motors, with their patented anti-cog technology, produce the large forces needed for many industrial applications – without the roughness associated with traditional ironcore linear motors. With forces ranging from 13 lbf (57.8 N) continuous up to 1671 lbf (7433 N) peak, the RIPPED family is well suited for a broad range of extremely demanding applications. Parker offers modular magnet tracks for unrestricted travel length. The RIPPED motor connector modules allow quick and easy installation while reducing overall maintenance costs. Ultra-high-flex cables come standard. Virtually cog-free operation combined with powerful ironcore technology make the RIPPED family of motors a superior choice for affordable high-force, ultrasmooth motion.


Parker’s I-Force Ironless Linear Motors offer high forces and rapid accelerations in a compact package. With forces ranging from 24.5 N (5.5 lbf) to 878.6 N (197.5 lbf) continuous up to 108.5 N (24.5 lbf) to 3928 N (883 lbf) peak, the I-Force family offers a superior combination of performance and size. The I-Force patented I-beam shape with its overlapping windings allows for a higher power density in a smaller motor, improved heat removal, and added structural stiffness. In addition, the ironless (or air core) linear motor design has no attractive force toward the magnets. This allows for easy installation and zero cogging during motion. Ultra high-flex cables come standard with I-Force motors. In addition, Parker offers modular magnet tracks for unrestricted travel length. Incredibly smooth motion, high precision and high force density make the I-Force linear motors an ideal solution for your demanding positioning requirements.

iforce positioner

Parker Trilogy’s I-FORCE linear positioners utilize our high-performance I-Force ironless linear motors in a pre-engineered, easily integrated, ready-to-run package. The principal design goal for these positioners is to achieve high performance at an economical cost while preserving the design flexibility to accommodate customization. Trilogy’s positioners have selectable single- or dual-bearing to match the performance and cost requirements for each application. In addition, they are designed to connect together using transition plates for XY or multi-axis configurations. Options include a variety of cable management systems in addition to bellows and hard covers. Flexibility, multi-axis compatibility, and ease of customization make the I-Force linear positioners a superior choice for high performance and value.


The 400LXR Series linear servo motor tables are pre-engineered “plug and play” modules that combine slotless linear motor technology with performance matched mechanical elements to provide, high acceleration, high velocity, and quick settling, with accurate, highly repeatable positioning. Offering an unrivaled range of features, sizes, travels, and ease-of-use options, these tables make it easy to size, select, and integrate a “best fit” linear motor solution. An innovative cable management system (with a convenient “pass-through” for user requirements) spearheads the list of selectable options which includes drives, encoder resolutions, Home and Limit sensors, cleanroom compatibility, pinning and more.

ett series

Parker’s Electric Thrust Tubular linear motor actuator series (ETT) is a tubular-style linear motor offering a unique solution for machine builders, OEMs, and users alike. The ETT‘s linear motion is directly generated without the need for mechanical transmission elements like ball screws, toothed belts and gearboxes. The body of this actuator houses the motor stator, with the magnets embedded in the moving rod, making it a direct-drive, rod-style thrust actuator.

ETT is a direct thrust linear motor actuator, ideally suited for all kind of linear handling and pick & place applications. It is a cost-effective and energy-efficient alternative to pneumatic cylinders in applications that demand greater flexibility and control.
