PHD Introduces Low Cost Lead Screw Electric Linear SolutionsPHD Introduces Low Cost Lead Screw Electric Linear Solutions

PHD, Inc., a leading manufacturer of industrial automation solutions, is pleased to offer a new, lower cost lead screw version of its series of PHD Plus™ line of electric cylinders and linear slides. In addition to the existing ball screw design, the Series ECV Electric Cylinders, the Series ESK/ESL Electric Thruster Slides, and the Series ESG Electric Gantry Slides are now offered in lead screw designs.

Ball screw models of PHD’s electric actuators are designed for high performance, where as the lead screw design provides lower tier performance at a significant cost savings. Precision ball screw or lead screw models are offered in two lead configurations per size, optimized for speed or thrust performance. PHD Plus linear solutions offer Your Motor, Your Way, a configurable system that allows users to easily power the unit with the motor and controls of their choice. Motors are mountable in an inline or foldback configuration.
