Bethel, CT, USA; (June 27, 2006) -- Del-Tron has introduced a new line of belt-driven DB series actuators that operates at speeds up to 5.1 meters per second (MPS) and does not require lubrication or maintenance under normal operating conditions. Deltron’s DB series actuators are ideal for use in applications where speed is critical such as pick-and-place applications on high speed automation equipment. Another advantage of the new DB series is that they can provide travel lengths up to 6 meters while maintaining repeatability of +/- 0.025 mm and linear accuracy of +/- 0.083 mm per meter.

New DB series actuators feature a steel-reinforced polyurethane belt that helps deliver repeatable positioning by avoiding belt stretching. The positive timing belt drive provides further improvements in accuracy and speed. A proprietary extrusion design provides long travel, smooth movements, and excellent repeatability.

DB series planetary gearheads contribute to the performance of the actuators by providing gear geometry optimized for planetary systems using zero helix angle gears to avoid unbalanced forces caused by helical gears. Generously-sized sealed deep-groove ball bearings support the output shaft. All gears are case hardened for high surface hardness and high strength ductile core. The gearhead handles input speeds up to 10,000 rpm and delivers exceptionally high output loads.

Three different types of bearings are offered. Steel concave rollers riding on chrome-plated steel rails provide excellent positioning accuracy even in applications that require long travel. A plastic coated needle bearing assembly offers the highest possible speeds. Finally, plastic bearings running on aluminum rails provide the ultimate in durability in tough push-pull applications. The steel bearings are supplied with lifetime lubrication while both types of plastic bearings require no lubrication at all. DB series actuators are available standard to accept NEMA 17, 23, and 34 motors and can be configured to accept other sizes.

Del-Tron applications engineers can help you select the appropriate belt actuator and gear box for your application. Del-Ton can also provide special designs of DB series actuators for nearly any applications. To obtain more information please provide Del-Tron with information such as the stroke, load, velocity, acceleration and deceleration, moment load, duty cycle, and other requirements.

Del-Tron Precision began operations in 1974 supplying original equipment manufacturers with the world’s first commercially available subminiature ball slide. Since then, thousands of Del-Tron ball slides have been incorporated into medical analyzing and testing machines, semiconductor processing equipment, computer peripherals, assembly systems, scientific instruments and many other machines. Del-Tron’s modern corporate campus boasts highly automated computer controlled equipment and final inspection of 100% of all products has been Del-Tron’s policy since its inception.
