LinMot Linear Motors

Linear Motors

Linear systems offer users low friction and high flexibility. LinMot's drive system is comprised of the control electronics, the servo drive, and the linear motors.

LinMot motors are electromagnetic direct drives in the shape of a tube. The linear motion is made electrically and wear-free, without any intermediate coupling of mechanical gearboxes, spindles, or belts.


Just two parts make a LinMot linear motor - the slider and the stator.


The slider is made of neodymium magnets that are mounted in a high-precision stainless steel tube.


The stator contains the motor windings, bearings for the slider, position capture sensors, and a microprocessor circuit for monitoring the motor.

Achieve short positioning times and high cycle rates with speeds up to 7.3 m/s and accelerations of more than 780 m/s2.

The internal position sensor measures and monitors the current position of the linear motor when it's stopped, as well as during the motion. Any position deviations are immediately detected and reported to the upper-level controller.

LinMot's linear motors can be positioned freely within the entire range of the stroke. Users can precisely control the travel speed and acceleration. Complex motions can be controlled by arbitrary travel profiles which can be saved as curves in the servo drive and accomplished by the motor at the requested speed.

LinMot's Standard Motors include three models with a variety of lengths of the stator and the stroke. The standard motors deliver:

Linear Motors with integrated Drive
Linear Motors with integrated Drive

LinMot's innovative PD03 drive unit is comprised of a compact linear motor and an integrated drive. The controller cabinet is no longer a necessity, thereby reducing the installation time and effort. Additionally, several devices can efficiently be coupled to form a daisy chain.

A series 37Sx120F-HP linear motor is inside the PD03. A peak force 255 N and a peak speed of 3.8 m/s can be produced. The stroke range is up to 1480 mm with the high-resolution slider program. The PD03, as well as all LinMot motors, can be positioned freely, has high process stability, long service life, and no wear components.


The drive supplies the motor with a high phase current of up to 25 A and has an industrial Ethernet interface. EtherCAT, ProfiNet, Ethernet IP, Sercos III, and Powerlink are available. Device profiles CoE, CiA402, SoE, and PROFIdrive are also supported. The RS232 configuration interface and the DIP switch are installed behind a protective cover, which guarantees that leak-tightness requirements are met. The complete motor with integrated drive meets protection class IP 65 to prevent dust and water spray infiltration.

LinMot's Series PR01 linear-rotary motors can be used to carry out any combination of linear and rotary motions. The compact design contains an electromagnetic linear drive and a rotary direct drive. A servo drive controls each; this means that the upper-level controller can be programmed to be synchronous or independent of each other. The variety of sizes can generate a peak torque range from 1.5 to 8.9 Nm. Stroke lengths up to 300 mm ensure flexibility. The product family includes options with gearboxes, hollow shafts, and stainless steel components in addition to the standard version.

elliTek's Systems Group knows how!

LinMot's PR02 linear rotary motor
  • New design with shorter installation length

  • Torque measuring shaft option for high-precision torque control and process data logging

  • Optional force sensor for sensitive closing processes

  • Optional integrated MagSpring for load compensation

  • Independent linear and rotary movements

LinMot's MagSpring (magnetic spring) products aren't your ordinary mechanical spring products in that constant force is applied over the entire working range for MagSpring. For balancing weight forces in vertical drive arrangements, MagSpring is the preferred choice since MagSpring generates a force independent of displacement.

MagSpring products are designed with two main components. The stator surrounds the centrally located slider. Permanent magnets are located in the stator, in the slider, or in both depending on the force rating of the MagSpring. The slider is supported by an integrated sliding bearing in order for MagSprings to be used similarly to gas pressure springs.

LinMot's MagSpring products
  • Constant force over the entire stroke

  • No electrical power or compressed air is needed

  • Forces up to 60 N

  • Strokes up to 350 mm

  • Fail-safe functionality and weight compensation

  • Can also be combined with H-guide

  • Suitable for dynamic motions

  • Clean design
