Our short stroke actuators are designed for high precision motion and force control while allowing movement in 6 degrees of freedom. Different form factors are available, in both rectangular and cylindrical shape with different motor constants and optimized steepness. Maximizing bandwidth and thermal conductivity are often contradicting requirements. We therefore have different designs available which are either optimized for bandwidth or RMS force. 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.


Magnetic Shielding

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


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.


Weight compensation

Weight compensation can be added if required to minimize power consumption or eliminate the need of a mechanical spring.


Forced air or water cooling

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


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.
