Linear actuators are stepper motors that incorporate a lead screw as the rotor, which translates motor torque into linear thrust. No maintenance, non-lubricated lead screw nuts ensure long life. NEMA 17 and NEMA 23 frame units are available in multiple screw lengths and leads/pitches; shaft-end journal and rear-shaft for encoder are optional, along with motor power cables in three lengths.
Stepper motor linear actuators are an all-in-one motor/actuator device consisting of a stepper motor with a lead screw as the rotor. These actuators translate the precise rotational movement of the stepper into a linear motion. Stepper motor linear actuators are maintenance- and lubrication-free and are a great cost-saving option for linear motion applications.

SureStep linear actuators are NEMA 17 or NEMA 23 frame stepper motors with a stainless-steel lead screw extension of the rotor. These actuators are often used with undriven linear slides or linear shafts / linear supports to create simple, economical linear motion solutions.
