The Framo LiMax is a linear actuator with a maximum force rating. Its modular design uses an in-line layout of motor, planetary gearing and lead or ballscrew drive to achieve a high force rating in relation to the diameter of the body. It is also available with a wide range of options enabling the actuator to be tailored to the exact requirements of the application. These include a choice of motors, encoders and other customised adaptations including stroke lengths. Various types of mounting and end connections may also be specified. It has an all-stainless steel body, piston and end fittings. These qualities, coupled with an IP65 rating, allow it to provide trouble-free actuation in exposed locations and corrosive environments. The designers of this product have also paid particular attention to its aesthetics. Given its all-weather suitability it is therefore ideal for applications such as climate control systems on the facades of buildings.
