Zero-Max is now offering Roh’lix linear actuators made from stainless steel for use in operations where cleanliness is a priority. Used to convert rotary motion to linear travel, Roh’lix linear actuators carry loads at speeds up to 70 inches per second depending on size. Stainless steel components make these Roh’lix linear actuators ideal for food, drug, packaging and similar applications where cleanliness and frequent system wash-downs are required.

Ideal for positioning operations in all types of machinery, Roh’lix linear actuators turn rotational motion into linear motion much like a ball screw, except the Roh’lix has the added feature of overload protection. The Roh’lix “overload” feature allows for thrust capacity adjustment so that the linear travel will halt if the preset thrust is exceeded. This provides protection if an obstruction is encountered in the system – a valuable safety feature when there is human interaction in the process.
