Raco Ball & ACME screw Electric Actuators cover a broad
range of applications, are environmentally friendly, robust
& low maintenance replacements for hydraulic/pneumatic
cylinders. The modular systems design allows for Straight/Right-Angle/C-Design variations. Thrust up to 225,000 lbs, speeds up
to 30”/sec, strokes up to 20 feet. For fast linear movements up
to 400”/sec RACO produces the belt driven LM-Actuator. X-Y-Z
arrangement can be easily designed for paint/cutting/sorting/

Small All-Plastic Series Coupling
Link Tech Couplings (Ventura, CA) has announced its
30AC Series small all-plastic series coupling. It offers the
same 1/8” flow size as the 20 Series, but is more reliable
with less moving parts due to its advanced design with no
external springs. Features include:
n An all-plastic thumb-latch design, which makes an audible
click when coupled.
n A durable Acetal (POM) thermoplastic, which is resistant
to most mild chemicals.
n Cycle testing to 100,000 connections.
Clippard (Cincinnati, OH) has announced a series of
direct actuating valves that offer a fast response time for
accurate dosing of minute volumes with the same long
life of the original Clippard EV line of valves, now in a 7
mm cartridge package. Subminiature size and low energy
consumption make them suitable for transportable and
mobile systems, among others. Features include:
n An expected life of over 1 billion cycles.
n An extremely small dead volume.
n Quiet operation and very low vibration.
