Product image

Our long stroke ironless motors are designed to achieve high precision motion and force control for both moving coil or moving magnet applications due to the absence of force ripples and attraction forces. Various force levels and form factors are available with optimized steepness. By means of applying PCB technology within our linear motors, the integration of a connector within a small packaging allows for an easy and fast servicing. Additionally, the integration of thermal sensors or Hall sensors for position sensing can be achieved with minimal cost. Magnetic shielding can be considered as an option as well as vacuum compatibility.


Prodrive Technologies offers you the flexibility of a standard product with the option of product customization.  No matter what kind of product you demand, we partner up with you to meet those demands. We use proven technologies, combining them with new concepts and techniques. In this way, we rapidly develop tailor-made solutions, this has kept us at the cutting edge. Over the past two decades we’ve worked on a wide range of products, systems and solutions, and thus accumulated a great deal of expertise. You can benefit from this experience. Moreover, we can often help you immediately with one of our exceptionally reliable off-the-shelf solutions. But, of course, you can always challenge us to develop something specific to your business and its needs.


Vacuum compatibility 1e-7 torr

Actuators complying with 1e-7 torr use special coatings, connectors and adjusted mechanical geometry. Design is verified by inhouse RGA.


Integrated connector

An integrated connector allows for easy installation and servicing without the need to remove the cabling.


Integrated position sensing

An integrated position sensor based upon Hall sensor measurements can be included. It can both be used for position control and commutation.


Forced air or water cooling

Forced cooling by means of pressurized air or water can be integrated into the stator depending on customer requirements.


Magnetic Shielding

Magnetic shielding can be added optionally depending on customer requirements. The shielding will be designed to minimize performance impact.


Vacuum compatibility 1e-8 torr

Actuators for 1e-8 torr have additional metal housing around the coil unit to eliminate any outgassing of epoxy materials. Design is verified by inhouse RGA.
