6 linear motors and 18 inches / 450 mm of travel

*When you simply need more stroke than 8 inch / 200 mm to cross all the ports in your damper, this is the machine for you.*

The LA68 comes with a fully automated crossbar that allows the user to easily clamp / unclamp the crossbar and raise / lower it as well all through a keypad interface screen. It also has (2) available speeds for movement so that large distances can be moved and then a slower, finer adjustment can be made for mounting the specimen in the test area.

The User will interface with the crossbar with the following keypad with access to various functions.

  • Motor Temperature monitor with active integrated cooling limits
  • Crossbar Status Indicator
    • Clamp / Release
    • Locked / unlock
  • Crossbar Position with User defined “zero”
  • Two-Speed control of movement
    • Fast for large travel adjustments
    • Slow for damper mounting
  • 1000 mm range of movement
  • 900 lbf of force available to compress / extend the specimen / damper

Main Products

CTW presents the LA Series of high performance linear actuators ready to open your testing envelope to any wave form you desire.

CTW Automation’s line of LA, linear actuators, are based on an “ironless” motor design. These brushless linear servo motors provide the smoothest possible motion with zero-cogging or the force-ripple found in other solutions. This compact design places the motor (forcer) within a U-channel of rare earth magnets to form a compact and modular assembly. Because of this packaging, CTW can stack motors in parallel and allow for the addition of multiple units to generate the power required by the User. The LA series come in three standard configurations of 2, 4 and 6 motor configurations. These systems offer a wide range of dynamic forces matched with high frequency response, large strokes and very fast velocities delivered with the smoothest motion. Standard strokes are 8.0 in / 200 mm with larger strokes available.

And best of all, these systems are shipped completely ready to run; plug and play. Since every system is fully completed at CTW, the system that is shipped only needs to be connected to power and the user is ready to Test.
